The film explores the role of photography, since its rudimentary beginnings in the 1840s, in shaping the identity, aspirations, and social emergence of African Americans from slavery to the present. The dramatic arch is developed as a visual narrative that flows through the past 160 years to reveal black photography as an instrument for social change, an African American point-of-view on American history, and a particularized aesthetic vision.
A tribute to the days when the words "gay" and "queer" took on a cheerier and weirder meaning (respectively) back in old movies from the 20s up to the 70s. I only used clips from movies I could think of or find quotes from online, so if anyone out there has any additional usages of "gay" and "queer" in old movies, let me know so I can start up a sequel. Dedicated to all in the LGBT community, as well as the fine people at Turner Classic Movies for inspiring this project.*

The two anime adaptations of Lensman novels are the movie Lensman: Secret of The Lens and the TV series Galactic Patrol Lensman. Although these were produced with the knowledge and consent of Smith's estate, the executors were so displeased with the result that for several years they rejected any other suggestions of adaptation. Several dub-only releases of the movie opened in North America, and the first four episodes of the TV series were released in a heavily edited form by Harmony Gold USA. Despite sharing character and organization names, as well as central themes common to the books, artistic license produced a final product altogether different from the source material.
