Imaging Ideas. A Select List of Films & Videotapes Produced with Funds from State Humanities Councils.
Films and videotapes treating some aspect of American culture and society, which were developed with funds from the state humanities societies, are described. The purpose of the catalog is to provide a qualitative critique of the listed films and videotapes that can clarify how each film's orientation or, in some cases, limitation in the treatment of the subject may call for supplemental presentation of ideas and information. The materials included were chosen through a nomination process in which all states were asked to nominate one film or videotape for the catalog. Items to be included in the catalog were chosen by a panel of six individuals, representing professional backgrounds in the humanities, experience in film and video production, and work on state humanities councils. Thematic categories of the films include American biography, the American West, American life, immigration and ethnic cultures, the populist hero, public issues, rural America, women's experience, and work and society. Information provided for each entry includes description of content, production quality, treatment of subject, potential program use, and availability information. (RM)
