Empire Marketing Board

Reminiscing about teaching documentary film conjured up the Empire Marketing Board.   I used to show their first film Drifters by the head of the EMB, John Grierson.  It's a silent movie and the students didn't dig.  Maybe next time, I'll show this re-imagining with a live soundtrack interpretation.
