Introduction by Peter Jasso, Director; Kansas Film Commission
Kansas has been a key state from the beginning of the movies, when early westerns found their setting here. And Kansas has been a film location since the early 1950s with movies of pioneering (Sarah, Plain and Tall) and the small town (Picnic), of con men (Paper Moon) and crooks (In Cold Blood), of science fiction (A Boy and His Dog) and horror (Carnival of Souls), of comedy (Family Vacation) and drama (The Learning Tree). Check out the library film collection to see these for yourself.
