Description

FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE During the darkest hour of WWII, a group of idealistic filmmakers hoped the power of the movies could reshape the world. Led by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Robert Riskin, the team created 26 short documentaries that were shown to millions about an idealized version of American life. John Lithgow narrates this story of war, idealism, and the power of cinema.

PROJECTIONS OF AMERICA will follow a screening of the 9-minute short film AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A JEEP, directed by Irving Lerner for the Projections of America series.
