These Amazing Shadows: The Movies that Make America

Thanks to filmmakers Mariano and Norton for visiting Ithaca College!  I thoroughly enjoyed their documentary called  These Amazing Shadows.   Nothing made me laugh so hard as the clip called The House in the Middle (available at the Prelinger Archives).   Here is a look at The Packard Campus of the Library of Congress. If you haven’t perused it, also look at the National Film Preservation Board’s National Film Registry  (yes, Spinal Tap is there); here is the complete list.  The filmmakers asked us to think of our favorite film & how it would be if it no longer existed. Is your favorite on the list?   You may also enjoy watching Le fantôme d’Henri Langlois (DVD 8249) available at IC Library; it is about Langlois and the Cinémathèque Française.
