Stacie Seifrit-Griffin works with the Library of Congress National Film Preservation Board and National Film Registry. Prior to the Library, her career in the entertainment industry spanned radio, television and live events including CBS, UPN, KROQ (LA), HOT 97 (NY), WPGC (DC) and LOCKN' music festival. She is currently on a mission to watch all 850 films on the National Film Registry. She has completed 561 of 850, and is currently watching "Force of Evil" (1948). Acclaimed as a masterpiece of postwar American noir, the film critiques the capitalist ethos turned hard-boiled. In his directorial debut, Abraham Polonsky unflinching portrays two brothers caught in a downward spiral of corruption suggesting a comparison to the biblical story of Cain and Abel. The film was added to the National Film Registry in 1994. For more information about the National Film Registry and to nominate films for consideration visit
