2007 NR

America's prominent film archives open their vaults with this collection of more than 40 restored short films reflecting the social issues of the early 20th century. These rarely seen documentaries, newsreels, cartoons and serials cover topics ranging from women's suffrage and racism to crime and juvenile delinquency. Each reveals a contemporary view of the country as it struggled through a period of tremendous change.
