Each year, the National Film Registry selects a number of films to be preserved in the Library of Congress. The Registry goes beyond a simple “best of” list, instead choosing films that represent the diversity of American life. These Amazing Shadows details the inner workings of the Registry. Filled with clips from hundreds of films, the documentary also features interviews with prominent filmmakers and actors, critics, academics, and archivists. “For lovers of American filmmaking, These Amazing Shadows may be the ultimate sampler buffet.” (The Boston Globe)
