Notes sur People and Power


Citations sur People and Power [en anglais]

« Scenes of [Saul] Alinsky interacting with First Nations youths on the Rama Indian Reserve in Ontario, lecturing to an audience at the Episcopal Technological School in Boston, and dialoguing with the U.S. secretary of labour serve to convey the central tenets of his ethos but also demonstrate a presumed dynamism on his part. By juxtaposing such scenes [...] the film metaphorically argues that the Alinsky model, and indeed the man himself, is a flexible entity [...]. »
-- Stephen Michael Charbonneau (source)

« Another chapter in the Canadian Film Board's casebook on the teachings of Saul Alinsky, People and Power was made during his first tour through Canada in 1968. Although only half the length of Deciding to Organise, the greater flexibility of its format—bypassing the civics-lecture style to catch the man in confrontation with individuals and groups—makes this item rather more stimulating. »
