Aro Recommended Native Land


USA 1942, 89 minutes
Dir. Leo Hurwitz, Paul Strand
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary, Classics

Topics: Politics, Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: Impassioned and authentic, this landmark film call for social revolution in Depression-era America blends vivid re-anactments with actual footage of Ku Klux Klan brutalities and the victimization against Trade Unionists.

Begun in 1938 but not released until 1942, it was made at a time when America's great potential for productivity was sapped by mass unemployment. It later survived confiscation and even attempts by the US government to have the original negative destroyed. Features narration and song by Paul Robeson.
