I normally try to avoid writing anything political on this site, however once in a while some things shouldn’t be left unsaid. Films unlike any other art form (with the possible exception of music) have the ability to inform, educate and provoke debate at the same time as entertaining. That is why on this day, 50 years after the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a dream” speech, I can’t help thinking someone should make a film about this important turning point in history. A film to inform those unaware of the history and to remind the rest of how far we have come and how far we sadly still have to go.
