New Restorations Film Series: The Bus

New Restorations Film Series: The Bus Auditorium

Of the many defining moments that symbolize the seismic activism of the civil rights movement, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in the Summer of 1963 was among the most impactful, representing one of the largest human rights rallies ever recorded in the United States, with over 200,000 participants. In the acclaimed vérité documentary The Bus, American Society of Cinematographers Lifetime Achievement Award-winner Haskell Wexler (Medium Cool) brings a sociological sample of the sea of humanity at the March into sharp focus, capturing the impressions of a diverse group of individuals as they travel to stand in the shadow of the Washington Monument to demand equality for African Americans.
