PSA Class C Commercial Film Winner 1969

Description:

"The Other Americans was a winner of a special Judges' Award for the Best Public Service Film in the "C" Classification. It's a long film, 52½ minutes in all, but it is filled with what poverty really is. Ms Julian Krainin and Dewitt Sage of Forest Hills, N. Y. have created a film about the Negroes, the Puerto Ricans, the Indians, the Coal Miners, the Farmers and many others that are poor, poor, poor. The average American will be surprised at how poverty-stricken other Americans are. The film is a mind-opener and well deserves the special award that it received," PSA Journal, Mar. 1970, 43.
