Video - "Another Realm"

This short film, "Another Realm", was shot by Joseph A. Cushman between the late 1930s and early 1940s. The film features his Sharon, Massachusetts Laboratory, the workers at the lab, and the Town of Sharon as it tells the story (in subtitles) of a typical day at the lab. Film archivists rate the film as quite sophisticated for home movies of the era with spliced sections of different footage over a period of at least five years (as evidenced by film coding on the original). Joseph and Alice Cushman are seen here along with several other lab workers from that time period.
