Filmmakers Leo Hurwitz and Paul Strand enlisted multi-hyphenate actor turned civil rights activist Paul Robeson to narrate NATIVE LAND, a mix of dramatization and archival footage based on the findings of the La Follette Committee's 1938 investigation into the repression of labor organizing during the Great Depression. The beautifully shot and edited film exposes violations of Americans' civil liberties and is a call to action for exploited workers around the country. "Suppressed for 20 years…today its depiction of capitalism's war on the common man makes it fresh and extremely relevant." – Charles Silver, MoMA Film Department. DIR/SCR/PROD Leo Hurwitz, Paul Strand; SCR Ben Maddow. U.S., 1942, b&w, 89 min. NOT RATED
