Imagine that you are part of a team creating a time capsule that will be opened in 2500 years. While other members of the team are putting in information about the sciences and philosophy and other aspects of modern life, your job is movies. You have to select five films from the last 100 years to represent what life was like in the United States during that time. You can be confident that no other movies will survive at that time…the five you pick are it. Try to avoid just choosing your five favorite movies…focus instead on making decisions that will help people 2500 years from now understand what it was like to be alive during this period of history. For each of your five films, provide a short (3–5 sentences) explanation of why you have chosen that film.
