lou.'s rating of the film Public Hearing

Amazed by this experimental b/w sort of documentary, filmed literally in accordance with the three Aristotelian rules of unity of action, place and time. Two hours of «exercise in democracy» are here fully enacted: different people - in backgrounds and needs - are passionately standing up for their opinions. Eloquent expressions and the hesitation of the camera on bored gestures are remarkable. Worth the view.
