  • Jason's rating of the film The Dark Wind

    RESEBA is a film of such sociohistoric and practical political importance that to expend much time finding fault w/ it would be churlish and narrow-minded. I would even suggest that what is inarguably a presiding quality of amateurishness is actually conducive to the communication of an on-the-ground truth. That I got to see it at a festival the same day Iraqi Kurds voted on independence was moving and profound.
