This ambitious movie presentation reflects the multifaceted narrative of a diverse nation in all its thrilling, tumultuous and triumphant complexity. By utilizing 10 major themes in three categories, talented filmmakers from different eras and unique artistic sensibilities form a genuine composite sketch of American life, framing in sharp relief where we've been, where we are now, and where we, as a people and a country, might be heading in the future. The musical soundtracks from each film will be showcased since film composers so often play a pivotal, and unheralded, role in making a powerful cinematic experience so memorable.
