A Prophet

This film is SICK! I mean sick. There were a few scenes when I almost had to close my eyes. Crazy story line. Its set in a French prison, where the main character who is of Arab descent is sent to serve his 6 year sentence. The prison is divided between Muslums and the ruling Corsican inmates. The main character is recruited by the Corsican kingpin and has no choice but to do dirt for them in order to survive his prison stay. Shit goes down. It had me on the edge waiting to see what was going to happen next. I finished watching it and wanted to watch it again.


I can not wait to see this documentary. I missed the showing at the Arclight due to some "technical difficulties" as of late. But Im gonna check it on Netflix asap...

Summary: Brazilian artist Vik Muniz creates photographic images of people using found materials from the places where they live and work. His "Sugar Children" series portrays the images of deprived children of Caribbean plantation workers using the sugar from their surroundings. When acclaimed filmmaker Lucy Walker trains her camera on Muniz, he is cultivating a new idea for a project. He knows the material he wants to use—garbage—but who will be the subject of the new series of works? Waste Land is a wonderfully resonant documentary that chronicles Muniz's journey to Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest landfill, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. He collaborates with an eclectic band of catadores, or self-designated pickers of recyclable materials, and photographs these inspiring characters as they recycle their lives and society’s garbage. Walker gains fantastic access to the entire process and, in doing so, offers stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the dignity that can be found in personal determination (Sundance).

Prop 8 declared Unconstitutional!

Finally! Victory for civil liberties!
That is essentially what we are fighting for here. Whether you agree or dont agree with it, we are fighting for our basic civil rights. The more these rights are taken away from "certain groups" the more we all lose because sooner or later they will come for YOUR rights too. Being gay doesnt nominalize a person, same as being a WOMAN does not nominalize a person, yet we are fighting for our basic rights everyday (Sign the petition). Everybody diserves dignity and respect, you see, we are ALL equil.
