   Charles talks with filmmaker Viviana Garcia Besné and Alistair Tremps about the project "Fascinating Eye on the Border."  Viviana and her cousin, photographer Monica Lozano, are presenting this special collaboration on Sunday, April 12, at 2:30 p.m., at the Plaza Philanthropy Theatre (http://elpasolive.com/calendar/985-jewel-box-series-fascinating-eye-on-the-border).  The Calderón brothers were Viviana's & Monica's great grandfathers, and the brothers' reputations as theater owners and film producers is renowned across Mexico and the borderland.  Besné's film "Perdida" explores the Calderón family history.   In this online-only extended interview, Viviana & Alistair also talk about the upcoming film "Shadow Collectors," which explores the efforts to preserve original film prints after they have been digitized.  Many of the original prints are either left to decay or thrown out altogether.
