Primary (1960)


This landmark documentary chronicles the 1960 Wisconsin primary between the two Democratic front runners vying for the presidential nomination -- John F. Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey. Featuring work by iconic documentary filmmakers Albert Maysles (who produced) and D.A. Pennebaker (who edited), the film captures Kennedy and Humphrey amid crowds and in more isolated settings using what was then a groundbreaking technique for documentaries: extensive hand-held camera work.
