Under the Dark Cloth DVD
Photographs by Paul Strand. Produced and directed by John Walker.
Kino Video, New York, 2002.
Although his influence on the history of photography has been nothing short of profound, Paul Strand (1890-1976) remains a curiously shrouded and paradoxical figure. While passionately devoted to humanity, he was happiest in the isolation of the darkroom. A pioneer filmmaker (Manhatta, Native Land, Heart of Spain, The Wave), he found the process of collaboration painful.
John Walker's Strand: Under the Dark Cloth is a documentary that is 'beautifully crafted, thoroughly researched and intimately recounted' (Variety) with generous amounts of Strand's most famous photographs, clips from his films and fascinating interviews with friends and collaborators including Fred Zinnemann, Cesare Zavattini, and Georgia O'Keeffe.
Includes Paul Strand's 1921 film short Manhatta.
