Learn more about American (U.S.) history and culture by watching the many documentary films available on The video above is a trailer for one called “Catching the Music”. It’s about how music is handed down from person to person.

These are just some of the other topics of the films:

  • Ethnic and immigrant culture
  • Festivals and customs
  • Foodways
  • Narrative and verbal arts
  • Rural life and Urban life

The films themselves are protected by copyright. This means that you can watch the versions available on the website, but you may not copy them or embed them in your portfolio. You can embed the short trailers that are also available on YouTube, as I did here. Other details about how you can use the films and images on this site legally can be found here.
