Glimpses of the U.S.A. Film

DATE - 1959

This film was the centerpiece of the American National Exhibition in Moscow for the 1959 USSR-USA cultural exchange, the first between the two countries since the Russian Revolution. The Eameses were assigned the task of introducing Russians to “a day in the life of the United States.” To do this, they presented more than 2200 still and moving images simultaneously on seven screens, each thirty feet across. The images provide a visual expression of the complexity and diversity of American life. Music by Elmer Bernstein.
