2015, Outsider Pictures, 90 min, Italy/USA/Bolivia, Dir: Ferdinando Vicentini Orgnani. The real story behind the recent Sandra Bullock film OUR BRAND IS CRISIS, this thought-provoking documentary follows the changes in Bolivia after the fall of President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada and the rise of Evo Morales, who is now the nations first indigenous leader. Commentary from these political figures (and their spin doctors) helps illuminate the challenges the country continues to face after its socialist revolution of the early 2000s. In Spanish with English subtitles.
1989, Film Movement, 103 min. Action/Crime. Originally a TV comedian, Takeshi Beat Kitano defied expectations to make his directorial debut with this tough-as-nails crime drama. He stars as Azuma, a police detective notorious for roughing up suspects, whose ruthless tactics become indistinguishable from those of the gangster he pursues after his sister is kidnapped by yakuza. VIOLENT COP showcases the spare shooting style, nihilistic worldview and deadpan humor that have made Kitano one of Japans most revered contemporary filmmakers. In Japanese with English subtitles.
