The City (film)
"The City" (1939) is a pioneering short
documentary filmwhich attempts to contrast the evils of the industrialized citywith the idyllic conditions one finds in small-townAmerica. The film concentrates primarily on family life, and more specifically on the raising of children. It opens with a look back at pre-industrial America, moving quickly into the modern city. The chaotic industrial and commercial cities shown in the film subsequently give way to the idyillic "new city" of Greenbelt, Maryland. Constructed as a New Dealproject, Greenbelt highlights the importance of recreation in the proper upbringing of children, as well as in the making of a stable family life. It was adapted by Lewis Mumfordfrom the story by Pare Lorentz, and was directed by Ralph Steinerand Willard Van Dyke, with music by Aaron Copland.
The film has been selected for preservation in the United States
National Film Registry.
