Join us for the special holiday documentary show in the series SHORT DOCS:
It’s A Wonderful Life: Seventy Five Years Later
“It’s a Wonderful Life” is now recognized as one of the greatest American films of all time. But it was a failure when it was originally released, and was only able to achieve the popularity and recognition it now enjoys because it fell into public domain in the 1970’s. The accessibility afforded by its public domain status allowed new generations to easily experience the film and enjoy its classic Capra narrative of an American individual triumphing over adversity. The film is now considered an indisputable classic and is an integral part of the holiday celebrations of millions of Americans, seventy-five years after its original release.
The screening will be followed by holiday songs and a discussion about winter holidays celebration in the US with the AMCs American interns.
The event is hosted on the American Center in Moscow Facebook page on December 23 at 7:00pm Moscow time.
