Join us as we reframe classic educational cinema! Considering these films from our current vantage point, it would be easy to view them as relics. Instead, they reflect, and influenced, our cultural understanding and mores. While the facts have been proven fictions and the tones are sometimes silly and overwrought, each film is a deeply entertaining treasure offering insight into our not-so-distant past. Films include Plankton: Pastures of the Ocean (Bert Van Bork, 1966)
