A Great Primer
14 March 2001 | by tommygSee all my reviews

I am stumbling over how to start to write this documentary film experience, other that I will not repeat prior posting notions.

I am a child of Los Angeles, California (USA) and have never migrated too much outside of this Mediterranean climate basin and its metropolitan life and values. Within my 59 years, I suppose 46 of those have been cognitive of my own beliefs, fears, timidity and aggressions.

I am very pessimistic that the United States can ever move to release its bondage of its Afro-American citizens.

It is within this context that I viewed this wonderful documentary. The values presented are the values that tug at the basic fiber of my country and myself in reconciliation to people of color. With all our power and global military strength and dominance, we (USA) cannot even cure or dare to discuss issues of race with a true face.

This film is a mirror held in the face of most Western powers, and mostly USA. This film provides a wonderful model to heal at least part of our past.

Perhaps President George W. Bush can include this film in his "faith-based" programs that will get federal funding and a wide exposure. And in his Education program, should be screened at all our schools and at a very young student viewing age.
