World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: Liberation Cinema

Though famously urged to "call Western Union" if they want to send a message, filmmakers have persisted throughout cinema history in exploring sociopolitical themes, most notably the armed struggle against oppression.  Whatever their orientation or commercial fate, these political films serve to remind us that the film medium is universal in the scope of its topics and its intentions.
