|Black America: Breaking Free||13-4019||29 min.||$ 99.00||©1989 |
Deals with a bizarre, complicated and frightening phenomenon: the rebirth of the Nazi movement in America. It took three months to get inside the front door of a Nazi household and another eight months before cameras were permitted to roll. The results are both poignant and chilling; the fear and hatred that motivates these individuals has roots in very real and recognizable frustrations the same frustrations that inspired an ex- paperhanger named Adolf Hitler to try to conquer the world. Be prepared, because the Nazis portrayed are not heel-clicking, Hollywood creations. More frighteningly, they are the men, women and children who may live next door.
