New Left Note
Saul Levine was editor of the socialist student newspaper New Left Notes and thus was at the heart of the American radical movement. The restless hand-held camera, the intentionally “raw” montage, and the lack of sound clearly sets this film apart from the many filmed parodies of the time. It offers the viewer a seemingly direct impression of the times by means of its artificial beauty. Although New Left Note is a classic experimental film that plays with the materiality of film, it functions amazingly well on the Internet.
