El Pueblo Se Levanta

Loading...
"In the late '60s, conditions for Puerto Ricans in the US reached the boiling point. Faced with racial discrimination, deficient community services, and poor education and job opportunities, Puerto Rican communities began to address these injustices by using direct action. This film focuses on the community of East Harlem, capturing the compassion and militancy of the Young Lords as they implemented their own health, educational, and public assistance programs and fought back against social injustice. An excellent portrayal of inner city organizing in the late 60s." -- Container.

Birth of a Nation, 4/29/1992

Loading...
"After criminal charges were dropped against four Los Angeles police officers accused in the brutal beating of Rodney King, L.A. erupted. This video offers a rare view of the rebellion that began within minutes of the verdict. It is a view from the street, shot at the epicenter of the rebellion where residents express their outrage, businesses burn, and neighbors are depicted as criminals on the nightly news; gangs call a city-wide truce while local rappers become prophets. With the hand-held immediacy of combat coverage, the video follows events over several days, shows conditions leading up to the verdict, the rebellion, and ultimately the arrest of black youth accused of rioting and violence as the chief of police and news cameras look on."

Landscape and Memory: Martinican Land - People - History

Loading...
"In Landscape and Memory, the French West Indies' most renowned identity theoreticians, Jean Bernabe, Patrick Chamoiseau and Raphael Confiant, investigate the different ways in which France, as a colonial power, marks colonized lands and peoples. Importantly, this is one of the few films about Martinique that adopts a Martinican perspective on France's overwhelming and continued colonial and cultural presence. The Martinican writers ask how, in a country like Martinique, does a colonial power 're-map' space and land? How does it 're-map' a people's memories and identities? And can one resist this mapping?"--Third World Newsreel Web site.
