The Oscar Project Reviews
Focusing on a little known rally of American Nazi's in the run up to the Second World War, this film uses archival footage set to music to showcase what some might consider the dark underbelly of American history.
Clocking in at just under 7 minutes, there is a lot of punch packed into this film. Curry puts the visual pomp and circumstance of the Nazi rally on display and asks the viewer to think and make their own decisions about what this means and how it informs the world we live in today.
Looking at the world around us, it's easy to say we are nothing like the society portrayed in this film. But at the same time, there are rallies that look very much like the one we see here, complete with people being escorted out by security forces while the assembled masses laugh at them.
This film should be required viewing for anyone living in our country right now. It speaks directly to the lengths to which some people will go to silence those with beliefs different from their own.
