Many cinemas around the country are now open again and providing us with a plethora of new and exciting films to experience on the big screen. Although some of the bigger end-of-year releases have been pushed into 2021 in the hopes that cinemas will be reopening at full capacity soon, there are still plenty of exciting titles for young audiences to dive into.
This week, we take a look at a visually stunning American documentary with a strong focus on community and togetherness; a coming-of-age drama set in the world of local beauty pageants; and an accessible and informative documentary about the history of capitalism, potentially the single most important driving force of contemporary society.
On November 8, 2018, a major wildfire spread through the town of Paradise, California which ultimately killed 86 people and left thousands more temporarily displaced. In the aftermath of the natural disaster, families find themselves without homes and must decide whether they want to return to the town or move on. Combining the devastating effects of climate change with the stubborn resilience of the human spirit, this community-focused documentary may be harrowing in places but is ultimately hopeful.
Coming-of-age drama Miss Juneteenth follows a girl named Turquoise who is urged by her overbearing mother to follow in her footsteps as a beauty queen in the 'Miss Juneteenth' pageant, held in conjunction with a holiday that celebrates the emancipation of those enslaved in United States. What follows is a touching exploration of family, growing pains and societal expectations.
Made with a surprising verve and style despite a subject matter that may seem relatively dense, this entertaining documentary does a fantastic job of exploring the history of capitalism, educating and informing people on the strengths and weaknesses of the capitalist system and examining our future. Full of pop culture references and featuring some of the world's leading economic experts, Capital in the 21st Century is ideal for high school Business and Economics students.
