Call for reviewers--Documentary films

From: Michelle Coe <michelle>
Date: Thursday, March 4, 2004
First Run/Icarus Films, a leading distributor of critically
acclaimed and award-winning documentary films to North American
academic markets, seeks reviewers for the following scholarly films:

    The Holocaust Experience: Examines the role of the museum as
    preserver of history in contemporary society, and how curatorial
    choices (which are sometimes controversial) are made. The film
    explores how the memory of the Holocaust is kept alive via
    preserved concentration camp ruins in Poland and hyper-realistic
    holocaust museums in America. For Details:

    Fang: Mixes documentary and fiction techniques to recount an
    African art object's 100 year journey--a whole century of
    Western attitudes towards African culture packed into 8 minutes!
    Directed by Susan Vogel, founder of the New York Museum of
    African Art. For Details:

These titles are of definite interest to archivists, curators, and
museum staff, and quite suitable for review or incorporation into
larger, more theoretical articles.

Those interested should contact me with the name of the publication
in which the review or article would appear: 800-876-1710
michelle [at] frif__com. I can get review copies of both films (VHS/NTSC)
to you promptly.

You can get more information on these and other films from
