About the Movie

What do films like Casablanca, Blazing Saddles and West Side Story have in common? As the government-appointed protector of our cinematic legacy, the National Film Registry selects culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant works for preservation in the Library of Congress. From award-winning features to music videos, experimental films to home movies, each Registry selection reflects a truth of its time or a standout artistic vision. Through interviews with Registry board members, archivists, and notable filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, Rob Reiner, John Waters, John Singleton, John Lasseter and Barbara Kopple, the filmmakers demonstrate the way film documents artistic and societal milestones. Guided by a true cinephile’s love of the medium and a treasure trove of archival footage, the film molds a cultural history from pieces of film, offering a microcosm of the work of the National Film Registry and making a powerful case for film preservation.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For lovers of American filmmaking, "These Amazing Shadows" may be the ultimate sampler buffet. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, May 5, 2011

Fresh: "Shadows'' is a deeply heartfelt, if scattered, effort that plays like an Oscar-night clip show with a mission. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, May 19, 2011

Fresh: "Shadows" is an 88-minute valentine to cinema, a reminder of why we continue returning to the multiplex, and an abiding faith in the power of film to transport us to faraway places. – Jen Chaney, Washington Post, May 27, 2011
