Immigrant films win at Sundance : Two films about immigrants living in the US have won the top four awards at the Sundance Film Festival. BBC News Sunday 29 January
Just how desperate the pro-immigration forces are right now can be measured by their willingness to tolerate an award to a Cynthia McKinney puff piece, which (curiously) was, however, little publicized. "American Blackout" is a simplistic attempt to blame the heroine`s electoral misfortunes on Republican machinations. The downplaying of the award indicates other considerations are in play. At any other time, this woman`s views would have brought down anathema on the Sundance Film Festival.
