Last weekend, I met with the Notable Videos for Adults Committee at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Conference in Dallas. Unlike last year when I was still viewing movies while at the conference, I finished my screenings about a week early, which was quite a feat considering we had 62 nominations, the most of any of the four years I’ve served on the committee.
As usual, I’m pretty happy with the list. There are always one or two films that don’t make the cut that I wish had, but that’s the nature of such lists.
So, in alphabetical order, the list:
- Battle for Brooklyn
- Better This World
- A Film Unfinished
- The Flaw
- Freedom Riders
- Hot Coffee
- Jaffa: The Orange’s Clockwork
- The Labyrinth: The Testimony of Marian Kolodziej
- Mugabe and the White African
- Neshoba: The Price of Freedom
- Price of Sex
- A Small Act
- War, Love, God and Madness
