Film Forum

Dan and I went to see a documentary called "State of Fear" by Pamela Yates at the Film Forum in Manhattan. Anyone interested in Latin America should watch this film. This film is about the twenty plus years of struggle Peru has with terrorists and former dictator Alberto Fujimori. This film is very touching and disturbing. In fact, it's in your face type of terrorism from mass graves to babies being pulled up dead. It's hard to sit there and watch the grotesque images on the screen. Seeing the horror Peruvians were put through is unimaginable. Watching documentaries like this one, puts things into perspective. If it happens to be showing anywhere near you or you want to fork over $300 to purchase it, go ahead and watch it.
