Statue of Liberty 1x56
Explores the birth of the statue, the history of its construction, along with the evolution and meaning of the ideal, Liberty, for which it was constructed. The film delves into the enduring reality of the Statue: where she came from and why; what she meant to myriad people since she went up; and how that meaning has changed and grown over time — in short, the real human history and questions and ideals embodied in the Statue.
