This program explores the power of propaganda and it's importance during war time, as well as the repercussions of loaded and insightful imagery that is often used in times of conflict. Praise from Linda White of Elmont Public Library regarding World War One As Seen Through Hollywood's Lens: Your presentation was Superb from the beginning to the end.
