The silent film Manhatta (mentioned in the video on Paul Strand) was made by Strand and Sheeler in 1921. It’s about 10 minutes long.
Please note, that it’s a silent film, but someone has added music; I’m not sure if it would have been accompanied by music in the 1920s.
The text you’ll see on the screen is from a poem by Walt Whitman, “Mannahatta,” written in 1860 and revised in 1881. In his poem, Whitman celebrates the burgeoning city of New York–Manhattan. I’ve included the full text of the poem below the video.
The film Manhatta belongs to a category of films from the early 20th century known as “city symphonies,” which basically just look at a day in the life of a city. (Other city symphony films are about Berlin and Paris). Note that Manhattan is a borough of New York City
After watching the film, please add your thoughts on these questions to the discussion. Your response should be at least 150 words (please include the word count).
What image of the city (this particular city, or the concept of “city” in general) have Strand and Sheeler presented?
How is their view of Manhattan in the 1920s similar or different from a typical image of New York (or other big cities) in film, tv, advertising, etc. today?
