These Amazing Shadows (2011)

US 88m, B&W, Colour
Directors: Paul Mariano & Kurt Norton

These-Amazing-ShadowsThese Amazing Shadows is a fascinating, albeit far too condensed documentary on the preservation of American film through the efforts of the National Film Registry which recognizes culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films for preservation in the Library of Congress. In explaining the influence of film on American culture and in turn how American culture has influenced film, These Amazing Shadows offers a readers digest version of America’s contribution to the twentieth century’s most culturally significant development – the motion picture and the reasons their preservation (Klaus Ming July 2013).
