22 films Converted from 16 mm film to HD videos
Harvey Richards Videos on Amazon Prime are a click away. I converted the original films to high definition video last year, but did not replace the older SD versions that I uploaded to Amazon Prime some years back. The new big HD files are now loaded into Prime Video, with the closed caption subtitle files for display on the internet. The HD versions with closed captions already reside on Kanopy where they are available (free) through libraries for students and teachers, but also for library card holders to watch at home on their TVs and computers. Now Amazon Prime users will be able to stream and download them. Amazon Prime videos are only available in the US at this point. World wide audiences can stream or download them via Platform Purple.
The Harvey Richards HD Videos on Amazon Prime consists of four films on California farm workers and industrial farming 1959-1966; four on civil rights movement in the 1960s; five on the Bay Area peace movement; seven on environmental subjects, including logging, mining and the San Francisco Bay; and two on the Soviet Union in 1961. (Decision in the Streets documents both civil rights and peace activities in the Bay Area.)
About the Harvey Richards Media Archive: The Harvey Richards Media Archive contains a treasure of images of the political and social justice upheavals of the 1960s on the west coast and of the devastating impact of capitalist resource exploitation in western forests, and mines among other subjects. All of his 22 films are available for streaming, downloading and as DVDs. The interest and demand for his images has continued to grow along with the interest in the legacy of the 1960’s political and cultural upsurge.
