DVD Obscura review!

DVD Obscura
Review by Alonso Duralde

If they ever have “movie night” at Occupy Wall Street or any of its affiliated protests nationwide, I’d recommend they check out You Got to Move: Stories of Change in the South (Milliarium Zero/Milestone Video; available October 18). Director Lucy Massie Phenix takes us to Tennessee’s Highlander Research and Education Center, a facility dedicated to teaching ordinary people how to stand up for civil rights and to fight against corporations who try to bring strip mining and toxic waste dumps to their rural communities. It’s a stirring, essential documentary, and the DVD features plenty of cool extras, including a Bill Moyers interview and a talk with E.D. Nixon, one of the main architects of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
