"Capping a decade of political filmmaking, Hurwitz and Stand summarize the momentous growth of labor unions into a vital force. The film adroitly mixes footage from Workers’ Film and Photo League newsreels with dramatic reenactments staged in front of Strand’s camera, exploring the insidious workings of fascism in American life.
Organized in 1930, the Workers’ Film and Photo League was an influential collaborative of artists and radicals. Their stark newsreels provided an alternative view of the Great Depression. Violent demonstrations and riots abound in the candid scenes of America in turmoil. NATIVE LAND incorporates a startling selection of vintage clips." - Bruce Posner
