Directed by Leo Hurwitz | 1948
“The most ambitious leftist film made in the US between Native Land and Salt of the Earth is this documentary noir.”
—J. Hoberman, The Village Voice

Before he ran Grove Press, Evergreen Review founder Barney Rosset produced this potent and uncompromising look at racism in postwar America, which compares the US with Nazi Germany and finds “the ideas of the loser still active in the land of the winner.” With its startling, often graphic depictions of racial and political violence, this rarely seen, stylistically bold documentary is “extraordinary… Hurwitz, with his audacious editing and blunt commentary, infuses it with a substance far more radical and harrowing than anything Hollywood could produce” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker). A Milestone Films release.
