Movie Diary 9/19/2021

More documentaries.

A La Calle (Maxx Caicedo, Nelson G. Navarette, 2020). An explainer on politics in Venezuela, although not always with the background one might want. Witnessing clips of Nicolas Maduro telling change-minded voters they have “made a mistake” by voting against him, or dressing down a journalist for telling the truth, is a useful reminder (not that we craved one) of the universality of tinpot fascists at loose in the field.

End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock (Shannon Kring, 2021). The oil-pipeline protests in North Dakota, with a focus on the Native women standing in the way. Some very gratifying defiance in this one.

Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America (Emily Kunstler, Sarah Kunstler, 2021). An illustrated lecture on the topic by Jeffrey Robinson, a lawyer and a canny storyteller. You will hear a lot about it.
