These Amazing Shadows: The Movies That Make America (Dec 29, PBS Independent Lens)
These Amazing Shadows: The Movies That Make America is the story of the National Film Registry. The documentary is scheduled to air on PBS December 29 (check your local listings) as part of the Independent Lens series. The documentary weaves clips from America's most-beloved films (and many rarer treasures) with moving personal tales of how specific films have reflected our culture and changed lives. It documents the passage of the National Film Preservation Act of 1988 and how this law set in motion a system to identify notable films.
