Editorial Reviews

Product Description

For over 45 years, Kartemquin Films has been producing documentaries that examine and critique society through the stories of real people. In this first volume of a three-part series, you can experience some of the classic films that marked the early years of Kartemquin Films. The Kartemquin Collection: The Early Years, Volume 1: 1967-1968 features two cinema verité documentaries, Parents and Thumbs Down. In Parents, a Chicago parish youth group discusses issues of parental authority, growing up, and the struggle to communicate with their parents. In Thumbs Down, the youth group holds an anti-war Mass and the confrontation reveals the deepening crisis of communication between their generation and that of their parents, priests and neighbors.

Review

"Vintage artifacts from the bygone heydey of gritty 16mm activist doc-making, when idealism was sky-high, when when film classes made movies out of on-campus crises, and when active protest was doubly worth doing if you were doing it on film." --Michael Atkinson, Sight & Sound, 2011

"Beautiful meditations on youth and what that truly means... may very well be two of the most important documentaries for the younger generations to re-visit, or be introduced to for the first time. Absolutely universal, these films haven t lost a step aesthetically or intellectually." --Joshua Brunsting, CriterionCast, 2013
