A documentary film has been released regarding librarians. It pieces together film clips from famous movies (and some not so famous) that have included librarians. Some of the clips are complimentary.....some are not. The purpose of the documentary is to illustrate how this glorious profession has been depicted on the silver screen, thus influencing the general public's perception of what a librarian is.
The film was first shown at the ALA convention, and subsequently has been shown around the country (including in Wisconsin) during Banned Books Week which just concluded on 10/6.
