Noviembre is a Spanish movie that I saw at the 2003 Seattle International Film Festival. This was my first experience reviewing movies at SIFF, and this was by far the best film I saw at that summer’s festival. The movie follows a troupe of street performers and questions the role that art may or may not have in challenging social structures. Like any good piece of work, its solution is muddled, bi-polar, and open to various responses.
(I’m uncertain if this film can be found on DVD – the last time I checked, in 2005 or 2006, it was still unavailable, but if there’s a merciful DVD-god out there somewhere, she’ll make sure it gets distribution.)
