Here’s a break from the usual GRL fare: a short (7 min) film by Andy Schocken, about the flag and how it’s used. His summary:
In a post-9/11 world, the United States flag is everywhere. But does this proliferation of the flag dilute its power and impact? Did you know that according to the United States Code, the flag is not to be used in advertising? This serious documentary uses satire to drive home its points about patriotism and the American way.
Watch it here: Old Glory
I thought it was quite good.
