All In: The Fight for Democracy
Documentary | English| 102 minutes
This searing documentary traces the origins and history of voter suppression in American political history. We no longer require voters to pass incomprehensible literacy tests or pay poll taxes. But suppression to vote continues to this day: several states require extra identification; they may prohibit citizens from voting due to inactivity; they often close polling places in poorer neighborhoods. The documentary shows how the right to vote has always been a struggle in American history for people who weren’t rich White men or property owners. It took long and fierce campaigning to get Constitutional amendments passed allowing African-Americans and women the right to vote. Interspersed throughout the documentary are comments and insights from highly-respected politicians, academics, and historians.

There’s no other way to say it: ROMA is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving. If Norma Desmond had been able to see it she wouldn’t have worried about the pictures getting small.
Few directors tell large-scale stories with as much sensitivity as Cuarón. In ROMA he refined his style of marshaling various narrative strategies, including cinematic spectacle. He uses both intimacy and monumentality to express the depths of ordinary life.
Co-directors Liz Garbus and Lisa Cortés have crafted a documentary of supreme relevance that has the effect, at once chilling and rousing, of a political cautionary tale
