This documentary is a 2011 Official Selection of the Sundance Film Festival, which shows how films like Casablanca, Blazing Saddles, and West Side Story have been deemed "culturally, and historically significant," by the Library of Congress and listed on the National Film Registry. This film explores how movies are selected for the Registry, and ultimately preserved for future generations to enjoy. This event is appropriate for the entire family.
