Playing in New York this evening at Film Forum: “An epic record of the Civil Rights movement’s greatest leader. Taken entirely from news footage of the time, with no wrap-around musical score or omniscient narrator, the great speeches are shown, not as sound bites, but in their entirety, punctuated with literary excerpts read by luminaries including Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Ruby Dee, James Earl Jones, Anthony Quinn, and Charlton Heston in interstitials directed by Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Originally shown just once — across the country in hundreds of theaters in a single day — this unique record has been restored by the Library of Congress. Oscar-nominated for Best Documentary.”
But remember, there are two ways to dehumanize someone: by dismissing them, and by idolizing them.
