New Left Note

US 1968

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.
