CreaTV San Jose is pleased to announce that the groundbreaking documentary Changing Boundaries: The History of San Jose is now available for free viewing and download on our website at http://www.creatvsj.org/watch/changing-boundaries/.
From the beginning, it was the intention of executive producer, Norm Kline, to make the film available to the widest audience possible including for use in the classroom as a teaching tool. The film covers 200 years of the history of one of the most important cities in California; from the establishment of the first Spanish town, to the first state capital, to the center of the Valley of Hearts delight and into the modern era of being the urban Capital of Silicon Valley.
Our hope is that community-based and classroom screenings will spark dialogue, not only about our shared history, but also about our future growth as a multicultural community.
Produced by Norman Kline Productions and CreaTV San Jose, and directed by Tricia Creason-Valencia, the film’s production includes a key collaboration with History San Jose, which provided archival photography and documents.
Narrated by San Jose native and actor, Daniel P. Wilson, and featuring an original musical score by Grammy nominee Robert Berry of Soundtek Studios, this first-of-its-kind feature-length documentary showcases interviews with key historical figures, from farmers to civic leaders, including Tom McEnery, Blanca Alvarado and Norm Mineta. Other notable interviewees include historians Terry Christensen, Nannette Regua and Steven Millner, to name a few.
