The Films of the Vozeolas Brothers

El G. and Arthur G. Vozeolas

From the 1940s to the 1970s, Lowell, MA brothers, El and Arthur Vozeolas made their own home-grown documentary films with 8mm and 16mm cameras as they attended civic events, football games and other major events in Lowell, and elsewhere. Working with their family, El Vozeolas donated the films to UMass Lowell, which preserved and digitized them in conjunction with the Hellenic Culture and Heritage Society. The project was funded in part by a grant from the Lowell Cultural Council, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
