Fearless TV for the 90s: Spring 1990
Anti-communism has been such a fixture of our conceptual landscape that many of us take it for granted. This film is lively compilation of clips from anti- communist propaganda films intercut with footage taken from an international conference at Harvard University in 1989. This show is an analytic and often humorous look at America's fear of red. Highlights from the tape include a US propaganda film hosted by Ronald Reagan, Angela Davis on a network talk show discussing what communism stands for and playwright Howard Zinn reading from a House of Un-American Activists pamphlet entitled, "100 Things You Should Know About Communism."
