A short film about one of the documents that shape America.
Independence was made in 1976 for the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the United States of America. Actors in period clothes portray famous people from the 1770's in and around Independence Hall, about the making of the Declaration of Independence. Directed by John Huston and made by 20th Century Fox with the cooperation U.S. National Park Service to be watched during the Bicentennial celebration at Independence Hall. The film is still viewed at the new visitor center in Independence Mall not far from Independence Hall. If visit Philadelphia see Independence Hall first then view the film. It would give you a better understanding about the document express in the film.
