Those who stand outside our culture often view it with a lens made more accurate by distance and perspective. An Englishman on intimate terms with America, film producer David Puttnam (Chariots of Fire and The Killing Fields ) sees in our movies the reflection of a nation at odds with itself. In this age of the visual image, popular culture can make attractive the vice or virtue that politics then imitates. During his tenure as chairman of Columbia Pictures, he was known as the conscience of Hollywood, a champion of quality and moral standards in an industry corrupted by money. In this program with Bill Moyers, Puttnam discusses the stories we tell about ourselves in the movies and how watching them reflects and shapes our society.
