Cinema Libre announced this past week that Dec. 19 will be the DVD debut date for author, journalist and documentary filmmaker Ric Osuna’s The UnAmerican Struggle.
The film had its premiere at the San Antonio Film Festival in August of this year and is currently being exhibited at regional screenings, including the Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival, where it won the Best Political Documentary Award, and it was the kick-off film presentation at the Camden Conference in Maine this weekend.
Osuna examines racism, misogyny, sexism and xenophobia in America through interviews with 17 experts currently involved in issues related to inclusion and civil liberties. Among those participating in The UnAmerican Struggle are Aisha Yaqoob, the Executive Director of the Georgia Muslim Voter Project; Heidi Beirich, Director, The Intelligence Project, Southern Poverty Law Center; Edward Ahmed Mitchell, Executive Director, Georgia Chapter, Council on American-Islamic Relations; and Sir Maejor Page, President of Greater Atlanta, Black Lives Matter.
Blended in with these interview sessions is video footage from protests of President Donald Trump’s victory, the Women’s March in January and the immigrant rally in February of this year.
