    Apiyemiyekî?

    Ana Vaz's modernist sensibilities don't really help the undoubtedly important subject (the education and genocide of the Waimiri-Atroati). More than that, the resulting film actually contradicts the idea of reciprocity of education that is crucial to Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed. And this isn't just an unrelated idea that could maybe improve the film, it was explicitly mentioned there and was crucial to how the drawings that make up most of the film came to be. Verdict: a nice looking evocative piece that is a complete failure.

    Rainbow

    ★★★★½

    God these guys complaining about Soviet propaganda but greedily gobbling down American propaganda as if it were 'realism' or 'plain old fun'.
    Nazism is evil, Donskoy's Rainbow is a work of pure genius, it's as simple as that.
