POV
The Act of Killing

 

This film explores a horrifying era in Indonesian history and provides a window into modern Indonesia, where corruption reigns. Not only is the 1965 murder of an estimated one million people honored as a patriotic act, but the killers remain in power. In a mind-bending twist, death-squad leaders dramatize their brutal deeds in the style of the American westerns, musicals and gangster movies they love — and play both themselves and their victims. As their heroic facade crumbles, one comes to question what they’ve done.

 

 

THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
The Storm

FDR addresses a crowd upon his return.

 

Franklin Roosevelt runs for vice president in 1920 and seems assured of a still brighter future until polio devastates him the following summer. FDR returns to politics in 1928 and, as governor of New York, acts with such vigor and imagination during the first years of the Great Depression that the Democrats turn to him as their presidential nominee in 1932. He survives an attempted assassination as president-elect and at his inauguration tells his frightened countrymen the only thing they have to fear is “fear itself.”

 

 

THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
Get Action

 

A frail, asthmatic young Theodore Roosevelt transforms himself into a vigorous champion of the strenuous life, loses one great love and finds another, leads men into battle and then rises like a rocket to become the youngest president in American history at age 42. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, brought up as the pampered only child of adoring parents, follows his older cousin’s career with worshipful fascination and begins to think he might one day follow in his footsteps.

 

 

THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
In The Arena

 

Murder brings Theodore Roosevelt to the presidency, but he transforms the office and makes himself perhaps the best-loved of all the men who ever lived in the White House ― battling corporate greed and building the Panama Canal, preserving American wilderness, carrying the message of American might around the world. FDR courts and weds Eleanor Roosevelt, the shy orphaned daughter of Theodore’s alcoholic brother, Elliott. Franklin enters a law firm but jumps at the chance to run for the New York state senate.
