Documentary Film Movement by Ian Aitken
Book DescriptionThe documentary film movement of the '30s and '40s is deemed to lie at the heart of the modern British film culture. This anthology of the period includes extracts from the writings of directors and producers, including John Grierson, Paul Rotha, Humphrey Jennings, Alberto Cavalcanti and Basil Wright. Each section is accompanied by short commentaries and a photograph of each figure. An introduction describes the movement's history from 1927 to 1950, and the types of films it made, relating it to other British film genres and contemporary debates on national cinema.
