Short Films from Kennedy’s U.S. Information Agency

June 9, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In celebration of the International Archives Day 2017 theme “Archives, Citizenship, and Interculturalism,” and in conjunction with the JFK Centennial, we present three films from the National Archives’ motion picture holdings produced by the United States Information Agency. Jacqueline Kennedy’s Asian Journey (1962; 30 minutes) is a film record of the First Lady’s tour of India and Pakistan.  The School at Rincon Santo (1963; 11 minutes) tells the story of the building of a schoolhouse by the people of Rincon Santo – the first and only school in that Colombian village.  Five Cities of June (1963; 26 minutes) chronicles five stories from five cities in June, 1963, including the integration of the University of Mississippi, and John F. Kennedy’s “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech at the Berlin Wall.
