“Unhappy with the limited structure of league newsreels, Nykino, a splinter filmmaking collective, produced a March of Time-type series under the banner The World Today. Only two episodes were released, the first premiering with Strand’s The Wave (1936). This one, like Native Land, addresses fascism in America.” —Bruce Posner
