VOLUME 2 : PROTEST
The struggle for civil rights is the subject of NOW! by master documentary-maker Santiago Alvarez. His signature montage technique joins images from U.S. broadcast news and the voice of Lena Horne to create a hard-hitting critique of racism in the U.S. during the 1960s.
LBJ, one of Alvarez's most acclaimed documentaries, examines the U.S. political scene in the early 1960s through a trio of legendary figures: Martin Luther King (L), Bobby Kennedy (B) and John F. Kennedy (J).
Prayer for Marilyn Monroe
Prayer for Marilyn Monroe integrates images of the Hollywood actress and verses from Nicaraguan poet Ernesto Cardenal to create a powerful Pan-American product. Directors Miriam Talavera and Marisol Trujillo portray the harshness of the star's life behind the glamour and glitter of show biz.
