  THOMSON, V.: Plow that Broke the Plains (The) / The River (NTSC) 2.110521

Pare Lorentz's The Plow that Broke the Plains (1936) and The River (1937) are landmark American documentary films. Aesthetically, they break new ground in seamlessly marrying pictorial imagery, symphonic music, and poetic free verse, all realised with supreme artistry. Ideologically, they indelibly encapsulate the strivings of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's 'New Deal'.



Fran¡ois I's decision to move his court to the Valley of the Loire coincided with a period of French architecture in which the Italian Renaissance style was notably influential, often combined with the existing Gothic, resulting in the preponderance of imposing Chateaux in the region.
