Abstract: This article analyzes through historical sources and works of cultural history, the emergence of collective film and militant documentary during the period of the New Deal period taking into account the tensions between them and institutional documentary policies or realistic guidelines of the thirties. It will explore how, the emergence of new audiovisual technologies, and the organization of networks of cooperation outside the studios, makes possible to understand critical positions that not only challenge certain aesthetic policies but also models of work organization. This will take into account the case of Nykino as split platform reformulating the precepts of antiavant-garde dogmatism of Communist Party of the United States of America or the alleged objectivity of the documentarism, conducting a critique of the creative work in the areas of militancy. Thus, we try to insert these practices within the framework of American modernism.
