The City DVD
Aaron Copland composed the riveting score for this powerful documentary, created to be presented at the 1939 World's Fair. Predating the kind of audiovisual social commentary offered by the likes of "Koyaanisqatsi" by decades, this profile of Depression-era America fuses music, narration, and unforgettable images to tell a story of societal crisis and renewal. City planner Lewis Mumford scripted the film's narration. 132 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital stereo.
