Summary
  • Working for change: Explores the birth of the social documentary in the U.S. and U.K. during the years of the Great Depression and the New Deal, featuring interviews with several of the people who helped define and shape the form
  • The strategy of truth: Examines the role of film as propaganda during World War II and the different forms it took in the U.S., the U.K., and Germany, raising the central question of whether a film can be both documentary, reflecting the truth, and propaganda
