Video and history -- HIST 1505

In class today I asked you to consider what popular video presentations like Disney's Pocahontas and the 2005 movie The New World say about "history" which I more or less defined as "what people right now are thinking about the past.

Did the video material I show inspire any interesting thoughts in you?

If so, feel free to post them in the comments.

Note: the picture above may be in an older medium, but it too is a reconstruction. The artist had no more contact with Virginia in 1607 than the producer or director of the movies.
