Two weeks before the election of Barack Obama, I asked friends of mine around the world to record their experiences of 11/4/08, a day that had become "historic" before it had even taken place. In this feature documentary, we witness a global canvas begin to unfold: in St. Louis and Austin, idealistic volunteers think they can turn their states blue; in Chicago, voter lines are made even longer when Obama shows up to cast his own vote; in Alaska, children seem to be as invested in the election results as their parents; in Paris, an organization discusses whether there could ever be a black President of France; in Dubai, Berlin, Geneva and New Delhi, expatriates express their emotion from a distance; and in Harlem, a felon casts doubt on whether any of this will actually affect his life. As we approach the final announcement of Obama's victory at 11pm EST, what emerges is a portrait of how people choose to live through "history": the celebration of a new future remaining entangled with the universally visible tensions of the past.

Limited Releases are Looking to Score

October 22nd, 2010

We should be getting a flood of Oscar hopefuls coming out in limited release every week, but that's not the case here. There are a couple films earning amazing reviews, but we have more films on this list with weak reviews, or (nearly) no reviews, and are opening with little or no fanfare. Perhaps there will be a surprise hit on this week's list, but if there is a hit, it will be a surprise. The widest release on this week's list is a Canadian movie, Score: A Hockey Musical. A hockey musical.... It's Canadian alright. More...
