Kartemquin and the New Deal

Kartemquin's The Chicago Maternity Center Story was
referenced in an article today in the Chicago
Reader
by J.R. Jones covering a series of film screenings called,
"For a Better America: The New Deal on Film." The collection of
work illustrates how cinematic experimentation wove its way through the New
Deal sponsored government films. Jones describes one of the films included
in the event, The Fight for Life, and how clips from it are
featured in Kartemquin's Maternity Center doc.
