520    ORDINARY MIRACLES: THE PHOTO LEAGUE'S NEW YORK is a 
       feature-length documentary film which tells the story of 
       the rise and politically motivated fall of the Photo 
       League, (1936-1951) which for fifteen years served as the 
       center of the documentary movement in American photography
       at a time when the camera was held to be, in James Agee's 
       words, "the central instrument of our time." The Photo 
       League's membership roster reads like a Who's Who of 
       leading American and emigree photographers including Sid 
       Grossman, Aaron Siskind, Jerome Liebling, Dan Weiner, 
       Morris Engel Walter Rosenblum, Weegee, Lisette Model and 
       W. Eugene Smith. Directly inspired by Lewis Hine and the 
       photographers of the Farm Security Administration and with
       expert guidance from photographers Paul Strand, Berenice 
       Abbott and Beaumont Newhall, the Photo League's collective
       portrait of urban life during these turbulent years is 
       comparable to the indelible record of rural America 
       created by the photographers of the Farm Security 
       Administration. Many FSA photographers, including Dorothea
       Lange, Arthur Rothstein, Marion Post Wolcott and John 
       Vachon were also active members of the Photo League. 
       ORDINARY MIRACLES is built around a handpicked selection 
       culled from the hundreds of images made by approximately 
       sixty individual League photographers, fashioned into 
       sequences designed around various subjects of League focus
       (Harlem, the Lower East Side, children at play, Coney 
       Island, WWII). The previously under-reported contribution 
       of Photo League trained war correspondents and combat 
       cameramen who served in all branches of the armed services
       during WWII is rectified in an exciting sequence devoted 
       to the Photo League's war. The rich and evocative 
       soundtrack is a blend of contemporary and vintage music: 
       The Mills Brothers, The Ink Spots, Django Reinhardt, The 
       Andrews Sisters, Fats Waller, Coleman Hawkins and Philip 
       Glass.
