Now, for the first time in history, you can own this four-part series and experience 10 of the classic films that marked the early years of Kartemquin Films! Initially motivated by the philosophies of Dewey that "artists are the real purveyors of the news," Kartemquin was formed amid the 1960s Chicago social issue film scene. Eschewing auterism, Kartemquin quickly evolved into a left-wing collective, sharing credits as they produced agit-prop works about labor struggles that were meant for immediate distribution, directly affecting the live issues.
