You might check out the excellent Mexican film Macario. It's based on a
folktale called Godfather Death with a script and story version by B.
Traven, shot by the legendary Gabriel Figueroa and directed by Roberto

Subject: Films on Resistance

A colleague and I teach a summer course called Religion and Human
Experience. We want to try to build the course around a theme and use films
as part of the course. We have done this in the past and it works well. This
coming summer we thought of using the theme of Resistance and the Problem of
Evil, and I would like to use the expertise of the list members to ask for
suggestions on this theme. We only have time to show 4-5 films in
conjunction with readings. For example, the class might read Martin Luther
King's "Letter from Birmingham Jail" and then watch The Long Walk Home or
read something in Liberation Theology and then view Romero. If anyone has
other film suggestions, I would greatly appreciate having them. You can post
to the list or send directly to my email address below.
