Paul Strand and Charles Sheeler

The silent documentary, Manhatta (1921), was shot with a 35 mm film camera by photographer Paul Strand and artist Charles Sheeler. Recently restored from a single remaining print, the short film feels experimental and fresh in its combination of Walt Whitman's poetry and dramatic shots of New York City.
