THE MANHATTAN FRONT is an interactive WW1 centennial film project. From August 2014 through November 2018, this channel will produce monthly silent newsreels combining public domain archival footage and staged elements to tell the untold story of how "The Great War" was waged in and through the New York harbor. This film project centers its speculative history on the intrigue surrounding the production and export of American munitions during 1914-1918. 

From this central axis of focus rays out simultaneous historical threads: Progressive Labor Politics, the Mexican Revolution, and innovative developments in reproductive media technology. For more information on these intersections, visit our website to read news accounts of events depicted in our newsreels or contribute your own story to the archive. www.themanhattanfront.com
