Nothing to do with books, but I want to share a petition. ^^^^
I know, everyone’s signing a million petitions on Change.org these days. However, if you wouldn’t mind signing this one…
Any art form comes with responsibility. Promoting propaganda just because you thought the cinematography or script were good is dangerous. It’s appalling. That America will reward and promote Russian propaganda against Ukraine when their own democracy has been so badly damaged by the same thing is incomprehensible. Many thousands of Ukrainians are dead and dying, but the Tribeca folks care more about “art”.
Remember that people were more interested in Leni Riefenstahl’s filmmaking skills than they were in the fact she was making propaganda films for Hitler? It’s not okay.
This movie is anti-Ukrainian, and floats the theory all of Ukraine should be invaded and occupied by Russia.
Sorry, pretentious, arty – ignorant! – film people, but you don’t deserve a pass on this one.
