I’m always happy to see films that remind us of some of the things we take for granted – freedom of speech for example. It’s unfortunate that the only cases that make it into mainstream media are the ones where a person or persons are claiming their freedoms are being infringed upon. It just sets the stage for everyone to forget that they have rights in the first place and that the cops won’t be showing up at their door just because they posted a news article about the happenings in their home town.
I think it’s important to remember that the life we live here in America is not the same as the lives people live in other parts of the world. If nothing else, it helps us remember to be grateful for what we do have instead of focusing on what we don’t. I hope you’ll find the time to tune in and appreciate the courage of these two men as they struggle to tell their stories as citizen-reporters.
