Documental, Historia: The Waco Siege of 1993 shook American society to its core. Following a 51-day stand-off with the FBI, the Texas compound of the unorthodox Christian group the Branch Davidians was burnt to the ground, killing most of its inhabitants. The official record stated that the Davidians had started the fire themselves to avoid capture. However, with meticulous and exhaustive investigation this ground breaking film claims to reveal a far more sinister truth. The horrific events of April 19th 1993 live long on the American memory: following a 51-day stand-off between the FBI and the Branch Davidians, the compound of the Davidians eventually burnt down, killing 76 of its members, many of them women and children. The FBI and the ATF have repeatedly asserted their probity in the affair, maintaining that the Davidians were a dangerous cult who were stockpiling illegal weapons and abusing children within the compound, and that they themselves had started the fire in an act of mass suicide. Waco: The Rules of Engagement fearlessly challenges the US government, dismantling their narrative with painstaking detail and presenting a far more troubling account of events.

Documental, Música: Traveling from the streets of Havana to the stage of Carnegie Hall, this revelatory documentary captures a forgotten generation of Cuba’s brightest musical talents as they enjoy an unexpected encounter with world fame. The veteran vocalists and instrumentalists collaborated with American guitarist and roots-music champion Ry Cooder to form the Buena Vista Social Club, playing a jazz-inflected mix of cha-cha, mambo, bolero, and other traditional Latin American styles, and recording an album that won a Grammy and made them an international phenomenon. In the wake of this success, director Wim Wenders filmed the ensemble’s members—including golden-voiced Ibrahim Ferrer and piano virtuoso Rubén González—in a series of illuminating interviews and live performances. The result is one of the most beloved documentaries of the 1990s, and an infectious ode to a neglected corner of Cuba’s prerevolutionary heritage.
