An old mining town on the Arizona-Mexico border finally reckons with its darkest day: the deportation of 1200 immigrant miners exactly 100 years ago. Locals collaborate to stage recreations of their controversial past.
Nadia Murad, a 23-year-old Yazidi, survived genocide and sexual slavery committed by ISIS. Repeating her story to the world, this ordinary girl finds herself thrust onto the international stage as the voice of her people.
This is an odd one, and I like it.
Narcissister is a very interesting documentary that delves into the mind and story of a sista who pursued her passion for making artfully bizarre (and sexually explicit) performances.
Be aware that this is about much more than her performances. Narcissister lets the audience into her childhood, parents' lives, and personal problems with ease. She tells significant portions of her life story in such an open and honest way that I felt like I knew her by the end of it.
There's a moment towards the end that got to me on an emotional level. Even after everything else she opened up about, it was rather touching for her to open such doors that are usually kept tightly shut. If I were to ever see Narcissister walking by, I would like to embrace her and enjoy a chat. In a way, she seduces the audience. Not by sexuality, but through the heart.
Warning: Due to the sexual material in her performances, this is seriously not a documentary to expose your children to... before they're ready atleast.
