Paul Tomkowicz: Street-Railway Switchman (Roman Kroitor, 1953, Canada)

Paul TomkowiczHere’s the classic National Film Board of Canada documentary I mentioned in passing yesterday. Great glimpse of working class life in Winnipeg at mid-century, but also interesting for thinking if the social documentary mode of the NFB draws anything from Vertov’s more avant-garde modernist experiments.
