Nick Macdonald's visionary films from 1969 to 1976 draw attention to political inequities we continue to face in 2018. His diaristic style and personal tone expose his frustration with the liberal elite of his time. From US global imperialism to Black and Indigenous rights, Macdonald thoroughly and ruthlessly focuses his lens on justice in America, highlighting the politics of representation. His candid and unassuming technique is both pleasant and disarming- the unfiltered sounds of children playing as Macdonald narrates- not only show the domestic contexts of his films, but the urgency of his subjects, as he states:

"…a totally subjective and biased view of historical facts"

In the face of tyrannical US imperial power, Macdonald compels us to see what could we have done then and what we still must do now. As we look to recent decentralized or "leaderless" movements, such as Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter, we ask how can we eliminate top-down structures, and build a cooperative society.
