Wilmington (Newsreel #30)

This documentary is about a "company town." The DuPont family controls the state of Delaware as if it were a private kingdom through the giant DuPont Corporation. Their normal image as benevolent, philanthropic liberals is challenged when they called the National Guard into Wilmington after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to occupy the city for ten months. Through interviews and verite footage, the film exposes how the DuPont Corporation dominates its workers through its control of education, media, politics and the economy.
Third World Newsreel’s historical Newsreel collection provides contemporary audiences with a vast archive of political documentary films chronicling the social movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
