WASHINGTON DC – National Archives Film Screening – October 14, 7PM

Projections of America (Film Screening)
  • Date: Wednesday, October 14, 2015
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

During the darkest hour of World War II, a team of idealistic U.S. Government filmmakers hoped the power of the movies could reshape the world. As Allied forces liberated Western Europe, the propaganda effort that accompanied the military campaign centered on 26 short documentaries about American life targeted at the newly liberated populations. The “Projections of America” films presented stories of cowboys and oilmen, farmers and window washers, immigrants and school children—capturing both the optimism and the contradictions of American democracy.

More than a documentary about filmmaking, Projections of America (2014; 52 minutes) is a story about the audacity of trying to build a better world in the midst of the most devastating conflict in human history. The screening will be followed by a discussion featuring filmmakers Peter Miller and Antje Boehmert; and Victoria Riskin, daughter of writer Robert Riskin and actress Fay Wray.
