Some go to the movies to be relaxed—to unwind. But others go to be inspired to take action. Politically-charged, revolutionary cinema has a long and storied history, and some of of the genre’s greatest pieces will be screened at BAM this month during their Rise Up! series.Things kick off with Pontecorvo’s The Battle of Algiers, a grippingly realistic take on the fight for North African independence. From there, you’ll have the option to catch Cuban classic Maluala, along with the breakthrough 2019 hit Atlantics. If seeing Parasite win best picture has you itching for more socially-engaged cinema, BAM has put this one together just for you.
