"1930s : Agit prop, state propaganda and/or author’s films ?"

Résumé : In the 1930’s a social documentary movement developed in the United States. While the majority of films during this period were Hollywood products, filmmakers coming out of left oriented circles were committed to effecting social changes, borrowing at times from soviet films and ideas. This paper examines conflicting aesthetics and diverse filmic strategies : alternative newsreels, humanist feature documentaries spsonsored by the Roosevelt government, experiments with dramatized reconstruction. The essay also questions the reception of some of these films at the time of their first exhibition and in the decades following the McCarthy era.
