Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Arthur Lipsett’s incisive look at human might, majesty and mayhem, compiled from some peculiar newsreel items of the twentieth century. The filmmaker calls this ‘additional material for a time capsule’, but his arrangement of pictures combined with Ron Alexander’s soundtrack makes it almost explosive. There are hundreds of items, once front-page news, but all wryly grotesque when seen in this reshuffle of the past. (Awards: San Francisco, Venice)
