AMERICAN MASTERS is an ongoing series of award-winning specials
examining the lives, works, and creative processes of our most
outstanding cultural artists.

Without art we would, as a society, lack a soul and a voice. AMERICAN
MASTERS exists to give life to that voice. Directors from the series
will share their work and provide insight into the art of filmmaking as
biography. A recently produced film on Louisa May Alcott and a
work-in-progress on Helen Keller will be showcased. Speakers: Nancy
Porter, producer/director and Harriet Reisen, producer/writer of
AMERICAN MASTERS Louisa May Alcott: The Woman behind Little Women and
Laurie Block, director/co-writer of AMERICAN MASTERS Becoming Helen
Keller, a co-production with WETA Washington, D.C.

no longer is. The future has not yet come. Looking deeply at life as it
is in the very here and now, the practitioner dwells in stability and
freedom"-- Our Appointment With Life: Discourse on Living Happily in the
Present Moment / Thich Nhat Hanh

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
