Vintage Documentary Film Series

The City

Made for the 1939 New York World's Fair, The City is a seminal documentary film distinguished for the organic integration of narration, cinematography (Ralph Steiner and Willard Van Dyke), and music(Aaron Copland). The score, arguably Copland's highest achievement in film, was also his ticket to Hollywood; it has been called "an astonishing missing link not only in the genesis of Copland's Americana style but in American music and cinema." (Mark Swed, The Los Angeles Times). Henderson Libraries thanks Naxos for their permission to show this film to the public. (1939, 131 min, NR) Meeting in the program room. Registration required. Register online at www.mypubliclibrary.com. Event is free and open to the public.
