Library to screen ‘American Denial’ at 6:30 p.m. Thursday
Community Cinema, a co-presentation by the Bud Werner Memorial Library and Independent Television Service’s “Independent Lens,” will offer an advance screening of the new documentary film “American Denial” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Library Hall.
The film by Llewellyn Smith, Christine Herbes-Sommers and Kelly Thomson follows the story of foreign researcher and Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal whose 1944 study, “An American Dilemma,” provided a provocative inquiry into the dissonance between stated beliefs as a society and what is perpetuated and allowed in the name of those beliefs. His inquiry into the United States’ racial psyche becomes a lens for modern inquiry into how denial, cognitive dissonance and unrecognized, unconscious attitudes continue to dominate racial dynamics in American life.
The film’s unusual narrative sheds a unique light on the unconscious political and moral world of modern Americans. Archival footage, newsreels, nightly news reports and rare Southern home movies from the ’30s and ’40s thread through the story, as well as psychological testing into racial attitudes from research footage, websites and YouTube films.
