Invasion

Invasion ★★★★

SAW IT AT SXSW 2015

A documentary that is very personal as I was witness to this moment in history, the 1989 US invasion of Panama. The director made the decision to not include no stock footage or picture to tell the story. This might not work for most people, but for someone that was there during the invasion this style really works. As panama has really change in the 20 + years since the invasion.

I love that the documentary is very fair in portraying the both side the pro-dictatorship and the pro democracy side. It shows that most of the people allegiance are not exactly black and white, that people that were pro-invasion were not exactly pro-american.
