Shake Hands with the Devil – 2007 – Roger Spottiswoode

Forget about Hotel Rwanda and Shooting Dogs. This documentary about the Rwandan killing fields, one of the most appalling chapters in modern history, contains some very disturbing images. If one’s ever shed tears over some stupid Bollywood movie, they should be ashamed of themselves. Omid Nikfarjam


When We Were Kings – 1996 – Leon Gast

36m.jpgFacts sink if they don’t have context to buoy them. This documentary provides the context to not only the greatest boxing match in history, but around larger issues of civil rights, black pride, African pride and marketing of athletes. Ali vs Foreman. Saviour vs Uncle Tom. The Rumble in the Jungle.
