FOOTNOTE TO FACT

by Lewis JACOBS
1933 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 8' 11




"This is one part of a proposed four-part film intended to document the Great Depression that was to be called AS I WALK. The other parts were never completed; consequently, FOOTNOTE TO FACT must stand alone. The film was to be post-synchronized, using sound in a stream-of-consciousness technique." - Lewis Jacobs
"Grounded in Soviet montage and D. W. Griffith’s INTOLERANCE, this film addresses Great Depression poverty with a rapid editing technique. By 1940 Jacobs had mislaid it, and the film was unseen and undiscussed until Anthology Film Archives discovered the original negative in the 1990s." - Robert A. Haller
