Filmmaker uses home movies to look at the history of cities. Rick Prelinger has spent his career peering into other people's pasts, using home movies as a lens on history. He has amassed 17,000 home movies, now contained in a digital library called the Prelinger Archives. Most of the footage is made available free to the public to use as they wish, but Prelinger has also used it to create a unique film series called "Lost Landscapes." These carefully edited montages present the life of a city across a hundred years, in the span of about an hour.

A period of stability is allowing Iraq's capital city to experience a cultural renaissance. Baghdad is experiencing a phase of rare stability and security that is allowing it to return to a once burgeoning art scene. In the 1960s, Iraq's capital city was a beacon for artists whose world-renowned works were supported by a sizable middle class. While decades of war and political upheaval stifled that once vibrant scene, the city is now experiencing a cultural renaissance. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Simona Foltyn reports.

The search is on for the Clotilda, whose survivors formed their own community after emancipation. Archaeologists have conducted a comprehensive search in Alabama's Mobile River for a shipwreck thought to be the last slave ship to arrive in America. In 1860, the Clotilda brought just over 100 people from West Africa to the states. They were enslaved for only a few years before being emancipated and forming their own community near Mobile. Africatown was the only known community in the U.S. founded by Africans who arrived through the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
