Seventy Years of Oppression

by rogerco on Mon 12th Apr 2021. Streaming proj @ home (with subtitles)

How can this life be allowed to be? Using footage shot over many years the story of an expat refugee (what a concept - someone whose homeland is a refugee camp!) and his friends back home in the camp in Lebanon again, as with other recently seen films, underlines the human power of community and family and the destructive force of imposed authority.

All hierarchies are ultimately toxic - e need to find a better form of social organisation here value comes neither from possession nor from oppression.
