Educational Documentary Film
THA’s current education initiatives include preliminary work on a documentary film on the history of the National Historic Landmark Treasury Building, next-door to the White House, and on many nationally-significant events that occurred within it over the past 175 years - events that affect and serve the Nation and its citizens. A seven-minute "trailer" or preview of the film is now available. THA is currently seeking sponsors to assist in funding the production of the film, which THA plans to have aired on a nationwide television network, with residual sales in the form of DVDs and streaming videos. For information on underwriting and sponsoring opportunities, please contact THA by email. You may view the 7-minute trailer here.
