Paul Strand at the Anthology Film Archives
Gateway, Hidalgo, Mexico, 1933 by Paul Strand
The Anthology Film Archives will be screening four films featuring Paul Strand as co-director, co-creator or cinematographer in a series entitled Leo Hurwitz and the New York School of Documentary Film running March 10th through March 19th.
Anthology is presenting the screenings as a retrospective of the influential New York School of Documentary Film, focusing on films made between the years of 1931 and 1942 that helped to define the genre of narrative documentary as we know it today.
While the series centers on filmmaker Leo Hurwitz, four of the films were made collaboratively with photographer Paul Strand including the celebrated Native Land for which Strand was cinematographer, a film that exposed “union busting and the tactics of massive corporate labor spying” and featured commentary by Paul Robeson.
