It’s an extraordinary personal documentary. . . . The idea that drives Wilkerson’s film is a powerful one, namely, that everyone’s private life and family traditions are inseparable from politics, from ideology, from history—and that the unwillingness to do the practical, intellectual, and emotional work to find out the specifics of those connections and to face up to them is both a form of privilege and a perpetuation of injustice.
