Frederick Wiseman’s ‘City Hall’ Will Teach You How Local Politics Really Works
Zipporah Films Inc.Frederick Wiseman is American cinema’s foremost sociological auteur, a chronicler of the myriad civic institutions and organizations that—in the best-case scenario—allow the nation to operate and evolve for the benefit of its citizens. From the groundbreaking early years of 1967’s Titicut Follies, 1968’s High School and 1970’s Hospital, to the more recent triumphs of 2017’s Ex Libris: The New York Public Library and 2018’s Monrovia, Indiana, Wiseman has exhibited an intense interest in, and eye for, the interconnected systems and forces shaping our daily lives, a web that encompasses issues of race, class, gender, privilege, and power. Without making overt argumentative points, his films reveal the intricacies, ideals, challenges, hypocrisies, failures, and achievements of the modern world.Even at the age of 90, Wiseman continues to churn out non-fiction gems like no other, and that definitely holds true with regards to his latest, City Hall, a four-and-a-half-hour documentary about the inner workings of Boston that, following its current online run at the Toronto International Film Festival and upcoming debut at the New York Film Festival (September 25-30), will premiere on VOD in November. Produced from the fall of 2018 to the winter of 2019, and shot in his usual no-frills manner (by cinematographer John Davey), it’s a sprawling panorama of government and community work. Tracing lines between the corridors of legislative authority and municipal hearings and neighborhood meetings, the film presents a comprehensive view of the grinding gears that keep the metropolis running. Comprised of scenes involving policy makers, activists, entrepreneurs, and average citizens striving to enhance their small part of the complex Boston civil machine, it’s a portrait of how macro progress is achieved only via a wide range of interdependent micro efforts.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Will Kamala Complete Asian Americans’ Flip From Red to Blue?
By John A. Tures, The Conversation Asian Americans used to be a reliable Republican voting bloc. But long before Kamala Harris, who is Indian American and Black, became Joe Biden’s running mate, they shifted to support the Democratic Party. This is true across ages, genders and ethnic origins of Asian Americans—including Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and Hmong.As a political scientist, I’m not just interested in voting, but also in how groups change their party preferences. This subject of study, known as “critical elections,” looks at how political party fortunes change over time as a result of racial, religious or regional groups’ changing views.Read more at The Daily Beast.

‘Residue’ Shows the Human Toll of White Gentrifiers Invading Black Neighborhoods
Courtesy of ARRAY ReleasingResidue, the very personal feature film debut by Merawi Gerima, is patient but not slow. The film, which arrived this week to streaming platforms via Ava DuVernay’s distributor Array, sees past and present not only give clues about the future but inform a set of ideas and questions, telling a difficult story through many lenses and challenging the most obvious conclusions.As many reviews have pointed out, the film is “about” gentrification in Washington, D.C. Jay (Obi Nwachukwu), who’s been away for years attending film school in Los Angeles, returns home to find his old neighborhood, Q Street, populated with affluent white people and his parents’ home, now elsewhere in the city, hounded by real estate investors looking to snatch it up. The story however, reaches beyond headlines and righteous statements, and instead searches for the substance of what actually goes on in places that do not merely change over time, but are violently transformed. Jay can’t get ahold of an old friend, Demetrius, who none of the remaining locals will be straight with him about. His parents are well-situated, and own two properties including their old brownstone on Q Street where Jay is staying in an apartment, but Jay himself is deeply destabilized by what he’s come back to. The flashbacks that ensue in the meantime refuse nostalgia, and instead look frankly at the neighborhood before it was whitewashed—seeing its beauty as well as its terror on every inch of the block. Read more at The Daily Beast.

Exhausted House Dems: Only Voters Can Stop Trump Now
With less than 50 days to go until the election, exhausted House Democrats—staring down fresh oversight challenges from a president who just keeps on serving them up—are embracing a Jesus-take-the-wheel approach: putting faith in the voting public to exercise the ultimate check on Donald Trump.On a Tuesday morning outside the U.S. Capitol—days after the release of a whistleblower complaint alleging, among other things, that Trump administration officials have been severely downplaying the extent of Russian interference in the 2020 election—the question of how House Democrats might keep up at a time like this prompted Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) to offer a disbelieving chuckle. Which then morphed into a full-on fake sob, played up for effect.Malinowski’s initial reaction to that question might sum up how many of his colleagues are feeling right now—almost comically fatigued at the prospect of confronting a new crisis, a breakdown of election security protocols, in a presidency that’s been full of crisis. But his actual answer to the question indicated a broader hope among Democrats that the light at the end of the tunnel may finally be near. Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump Did Something Great This Week. So Where’s the Credit?
Alex Wong/Getty ImagesDonald Trump did something pretty amazing this week: He brokered a Middle East peace deal that normalized relations between Israel and two Arab nations. And the public barely noticed.Make no mistake. This was a historic deal, reshaping the Middle East and providing security for Israel, all while further isolating the Islamic Republic of Iran and its terrorist proxies. And it could be a harbinger of things to come; there is speculation that Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Sudan, and Oman could follow. This could snowball for the good. Yet, if you blinked, you might have missed it. Read more at The Daily Beast.

De Blasio Botches His Own Ego-Stroking School Reopening
Michael Loccisano/GettyMayor Bill de Blasio of New York has further proven that ego can make even the most strident progressive as blind as President Trump is to his own absurdity.On Thursday, just three days before in-person classes were due to begin, the mayor announced a second last-minute delay in the opening of America’s biggest school system. He again cited manifest realities that he had been denying for weeks. He again offered no apology to the families as he went de Bonkers.“I think our parents—and I was one for a long time in our public schools—they’re a lot more pragmatic than you might imagine,” he said at a press conference. “[They] are overwhelmingly working-class people and lower-income people... They are people who understand the realities of life and they’re not shocked when something this difficult has to be adjusted from time to time.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Kamala Harris Loves Her Timberlands. As a Black Woman, I Share Her Devotion
Timberland boots have come to be an emblem of the Black community, and this week—after a much-buzzed-about photograph of her stepping off a plane in California—vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has owned that statement. She was sure to take that cultural icon with her while conducting political, grassroots work, inspecting a site of the recent, devastating wildfires. It was as if she was letting the Black community know that she stands with them, and has not forgotten who she is or where she came from. On the flipside, she was reminding the entire nation that it’s OK to be Black, that it’s OK to not assimilate into “white” America. The move was unapologetically Black. For me, it is the kind of move that signals to me that I can be Black without having to code-switch whenever I walk into a room of predominantly white people at a party; it meant that I can wear my hair in its natural curl pattern when I go for a job interview; it meant that I don’t have to change the radio station to Top 40 whenever a white coworker rides with me in the car.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Italy's Tourism Bust Leads to Real Estate Boom
Getty ImagesROME—There is something particularly telling about the “for sale” advertisements on Italy's real estate websites these days. Rather than the usual badly lit photos of apartments on the market, many ads look like Airbnb flats for rent, complete with folded towels on the beds and tables set for two. That's because they are. Across Italy, an increasing number of people who bought cheap apartments to fix up to ride the Airbnb boom a few years ago are now stuck with apartments they can't pay the mortgage on and are selling them off after the COVID-19 pandemic all but killed off tourism. Italy's tourism industry is slated to lose around $120 billion in 2020, and 2021 doesn't look like it will be much better. Calling this year's summer a “season to forget,” Italy’s main financial newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore reports a “worse-than-expected” decrease in foreign tourists to Italy of 66 percent, which has crippled the hotel industry and devastated the Airbnb market. Read more at The Daily Beast.
