The Silver Screen Gets Dirty

Cinema is the medium of 'today.' Music? So 19th century--that's what you download off the internet for free. Painting? You mean like the sides of houses? Poetry? Architecture? Ho ho ho, how rich!

No, our time belongs to film (or video) what with its unique ability to spread meme and its capital intensive way of doing things. Not cheap those HD cameras.

Our bibliography includes some films. Here they are:

"Hands to Houses," International Cooperation Administration, English, Approx. 15 minutes.

"Help Yourself to a House," International Cooperation Administration, No. 8.198, English, Approx. 25 minutes.

"Housing Adventure in Chile," International Cooperation Administration, No. 12.64, English, 28 minutes

"It Can Be Done," International Cooperation Administration, No. 8.185, English, 28 minutes.

"Rumah Gatong Rojong," International Cooperation Administration, No. 8016.16, Indonesian (English summaries), Approx. 60 minutes.

"Showing the Way," International Cooperation Administration, No. 8.194, English, 12 minutes.
