About the Film:

"O" Say Can you See: The Star Spangled Banner in Sports, was created by the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation in cooperation with the city-wide effort to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the Battle of Fort McHenry. The film will employ a new technology that projects images onto multiple surfaces, creating a high-tech film experience. The film concludes with a composite rendition of the Banner, featuring segments of the song as performed by various artists and bands at sporting events.
