The Films of Will Onda – Monday 12 May at Preston Historical Society

Just a quick update to let you know I am talking about Will Onda’s film collection and presenting a few clips of his films at the forthcoming meeting of Preston Historical Society at the Minster on Monday 12 May. The talk starts at 7.30pm approximately, the AGM is first. I will be there from 7pm. 

This talk will include a brief introduction on Will Onda for those who missed last years talk on my personal research on Will Onda’s background and career on the stage. Then I will present how he got interested in films, the extent of Will Onda’s work as filmmaker, and most importantly what has survived.
