Rick's latest film ("slowly in the works") will be based on this burgeoning collection. "One of the things that we say we're trying to do — it's a little grandiose, but it's actually true — is putting together a complete ethnographic portrait of 20th century North America through home movies," Rick says. Looking at what they've accomplished so far, it's not hard to conclude that if anyone can pull off such a feat, it'll be the Prelingers.
