City : the classic 1939 documentray film by Post-Classical Ensemble( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Made for the 1939 New York World's Fair ("The World of Tomorrow"), 'The City' is a seminal documentary film distinguished for the organic integration of narration (scripted by city planner Lewis Mumford), 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'). As the film contains no dialogue, it is possible to create a fresh soundtrack and discover musical riches inaudible on the original monaural recording. As Copland created no suite from 'The City', the present DVD at the same time marks the world premiere recording of this music in its entirety
The plow that broke the plains by Pare Lorentz( Visual )

"The River" retrace la vie dans la Vallée du Mississippi pendant les 150 années précédentes, montre les conséquences du métayage, l'épuisement de sol, l'érosion et les inondations, et conclut avec des scènes de l'aménagement du territoire, du développement et des efforts fédéraux

The plow that broke the plains ; The river by Pare Lorentz( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pare Lorentz's The Plow that Broke the Plains (1936) and The River (1937) are landmark American documentary films. Aesthetically, they break new ground in seamlessly marrying pictorial imagery, symphonic music, and poetic free verse, all realised with supreme artistry. Ideologically, they indelibly encapsulate the strivings of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's 'New Deal'. These two groundbreaking American documentary films feature some of the best film music ever written. Here, Virgil Thomson's famous scores, including some cuts that did not make the original release, have been re-recorded by the Post-Classical ensemble

Redes by Emilio Gómez Muriel( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An iconic product of the Mexican Revolution, Redes (1935) combines the talents of a master composer, Silvestre Revueltas, and a master cinematographer, Paul Strand. Its marriage of music and the moving image attains heights of epic grandeur. The co-directors are Fred Zinnemann (en route to Hollywood) and Emilio Gomez Muriel. Because dialogue rarely overlaps music, it is possible to re-record Revueltas₂s galvanizing score and discover musical riches inaudible on the original monaural soundtrack
The city by Fernand Léger( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This program examines the metamorphosis of the city from fort and trading post to cultural epicenter and beyond. Ancient cities are discussed and Athens and Rome are compared. Modern cities including New York and Paris are also presented, with a focus on Paris' attempt to re-create itself in the 19th century by razing slums to build monuments and boulevards. City planning and public services are examined as well, along with the middle-class exodus from, and recent return to, many American cities."--Container
