In doing so, for instance, we necessarily and regrettably subordinate some classic films like, say, The Grapes of Wrath, which captures the spirit of the Great Depression, because we are primarily interested in studying what film-makers do with a very specific historical record.

Links are provided for film projects that are already part of the archive. For more information on specific films, we suggest consulting the Internet Movie Database.
