the latin left: an education

documentaries abt latin america (diaspora)‘s left-wing revolutionaries/communities, because i would like to learn more & presumably other people would too!
*note: some movements obviously (have) had reactionary elements, including ones that were anti-Black, anti-undocumented, dictatorial, etc. learn from these documentaries in every way you deem appropriate, ofc applying critical thinking to the filmmakers themselves, too*
- add: “the plume” upcoming film
