Description

'The City' (1939), film screening

Seng Tee Lee Seminar Room, Senate House Library

18:00 – 19:30


The City is a pioneering short documentary film from 1939 that contrasts the problems of the contemporary urban environment with the superior social and physical conditions that can be provided in a planned community. The film was the idea of Catherine Bauer, an urban planner and public housing advocate. It was directed by and photographed by Ralph Steiner and Willard Van Dyke. Aaron Copland wrote the musical score and Morris Carnovsky provided the narration.

 

Maria Castrillo, Head of Special Collections and Engagement at Senate House Library, will introduce the film and lead the discussion afterwards.
