ACTIVIST FILMMAKING For well over a century, nonfiction film has figured prominently in the public sphere as a powerful means of persuasion.

Wright’s Song of Ceylon (1934) and Grierson’s Drifters remain impressive today for their command of aesthetic form and visual beauty. During the war the documentary film movement also played a role in developing a new genre: the dramatised documentary, exemplified by Jennings’ Fires Were Started (1943).

In line with Grierson efforts, the Workers Film and Photo League was the first social movement to coordinate political dissent with the recording of a documentary text in the 1930s.
