I watched this film along with a showing of all Short-Film Oscar Nominees of 2003. I would vote this one best picture, short or otherwise, compared with the otherwise somewhat ordinary 2003 contenders. It uses a mixture of actual footage, drama, and interviews with desendants of all who were involved. Especially energizing were comments from a young boy of about 10 years very enthusiastically interjecting comments as the story was told about his "Auntie Rosa". I learned a lot and was inspired by Dr King's speeches, Rosa's bravery, and the entire movement being successful due to rightousness and non-violent protest. A great film.
