American Film: Myth and Reality

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

In a world filled with movie stars and red carpets, the dirty, seedy money of Hollywood flows unchecked. After years of big name assassins murdering the work of scholars throughout the country or producers blackmailing historians into bitter silence, a group of young students have risen up from the other side of the mainland US. This is a group hell-bent on giving directors the finger, this is a group willing to dissecting the mutated demons of “Historically accurate films”, This is the University of Mary Washington’s US History in Film Course, a mindbending thriller that will send chills down your spine.

Critics claim, “This film is more frightening than a bad lit review!”

“It sings of some lost concept of ‘Digital Humanities’.”

“It bashes Disney so bad, that I can never look at Pocahontas or even the Little Mermaid the same.”
