Annenberg Learner

A video instructional series on film history for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 10 one-hour and 3 half-hour video programs.

Using clips from more than 300 of the greatest movies ever made, this series explores film history and American culture through the eyes of over 150 Hollywood insiders, including Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg, and Michael Eisner. In-depth treatments present film as a powerful economic force, and potent twentieth-century art form. You don’t need to register – just click on the video and enjoy.  Sounds awesome.  Maybe some popcorn?

Produced by the New York Center for Visual History in association with KCET/Los Angeles and the BBC. 1995.

American Cinema connects subjects such as history, business, and English with other studies. In addition, it is a perfect vehicle for developing visual and media literacy skills and can be used as a springboard for creative-writing endeavors and media production.
