Henri Cartier-Bresson’s footage: With the Lincoln Battalion in Spain (1937, 18 min)

The classic documentary on the Abraham Lincoln Brigade—US volunteers who defended the Spanish Republic against fascism (1936-39)—that first premiered at the Surf Theater in San Francisco in 1984 and contains moving interviews with beloved local heroes; Bill Bailey (ILWU, NMU), Ruth Davidow, Evelyn Hutchins, Abe Osheroff, and Milt Wolff. Paired with recently discovered archival footage in the trenches and behind the scenes in Spain by famed photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Seen together, the two films are an intimate portrait of young labor activists and progressives—both in the midst of battle and as they reflect on their past—as well as some of the most significant events of the 1930s.
