  • The 400 Million

    1939. USA. Directed by Joris Ivens. Edited by Helen van Dongen. Narration by Fredric March. After The Spanish Earth, the director and editor collaborated on another political documentary, The 400 Million, which documents the graphic horror of the Japanese invasion of China in 1937. The film exemplifies Ivens and van Dongen's trademark juxtaposition of the resilient spirit of the oppressed with unimaginable destruction and death. 56 min.

    1940. USA. Directed by Joris Ivens. Edited by Helen van Dongen. Power and the Land, which was commissioned by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to document the government's efforts to convince American farmers to use electricity, was the last of van Dongen's thirteen film collaborations with Ivens. 38 min.
