MANHATTA

by Charles SHEELER & Paul STRAND
1921 / b&w / silent / 1S / 9' 00

“The painter Charles Sheeler picked up photography in the 1910s in order to make a living, since his new geometric paintings were not selling well. He then became increasingly interested in the expressive possibilities of the camera. He decided to make a film in collaboration with the photographer Paul Strand. Their collaboration resulted in a impressionist representation of a hymn to the city by Walt Whitman, and is characterized by a style that is more photo-secessionist than realist. It was also the beginning of the brilliant cinematic career of Paul Strand.” William J. Sloan
