The people's films; a political history of U.S. Government motion pictures by Richard Dyer MacCann( Book )

10 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three assumptions underlie this book: that there is a crisis in communication in our time, that free communication between experts and the people is vital to the health of a democratic society, and that government is one of many agencies in our society which have immediate moral responsibility for action. The book explores one facet of this communication process--documentary films produced by or for the United States government agencies, from 1908 through the famous documentaries by Pare Lorentz, the wartime films by Frank Capra, and the usia years under Presiden Kennedy. The final chapters propose new departures in public communication, including Presidential and Congressional visual reports on current issues and community action films. (Author/SH)
