Event description

Description

polyvinyl films presents the LA premiere for our award-winning feature The Manhattan Front (2018).

In the signature style of filmmaker Cathy Lee Crane, her feature-length film blends fiction and rarely seen archival footage from the National Archives in Washington, D.C. to conjure the fantastically true story of how America entered WWI. Through vibrant characters like labor leader Elizabeth Gurley Flynn and German naval officer Franz von Rintelen, along with issues of radical labor politics, munitions production, surveillance of citizens, and the domestic effects of war, Crane’s unique aesthetic of fact and fiction unmasking each other unlocks hidden histories held in the archive.

The Manhattan Front made its World Festival Premiere at the SFIndie Fest in 2018. http://www.themanhattanfront.com/press
