SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Dozens of people attended a special screening at the Cascade Theater in Redding Saturday all for the long lost film documenting the building of the Shasta Dam.


Officials with the dam say many locals think of the infrastructure as a beauty in people’s backyards, but many do not know the history behind how it was built.


Nor how it impacts people nationwide.


The film which took over two years to make is their way of informing everyone about the tall dam.


“We’ve spent lots of time filming interviewing going through photographs to try and put into this to really tell the story the best we could,” said Tami Corn, a Shasta Dam tour supervisor.


Officials said if you missed Saturday’s screening they’ll have a shorter version available at the dam, adding there’s a possibility the full film may one day be available.
