"DOCUMENTING THE FACE OF AMERICA brings to life the remarkable stories behind the legendary group of New Deal-sponsored photographers who traversed the country in the 1930’s and early 1940’s, chronicling the lives of Americans -- rich and poor, urban and rural, black and white – to create one of the most astonishing documentary portraits of America ever compiled. The film features the personal vision and the struggles experienced by photographers Gordon Parks, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Walker Evans, Marion Post Wolcott, and Jack Delano, who created some of the most iconic images in documentary history, and captured, for the first time, a complete picture of their countrymen in the context of a national identity. The immediacy and power of their photographs helped transform popular opinion in a way that words and speeches never could."
