STREET FIGHT
Marshall Curry (2005)
Captures a bare-knuckle campaign battle in the streets
and housing projects
of Newark, New Jersey. On one side
incumbent Sharpe James's old-school political
machine
works to crush anyone who dares question his campaign.
On the other,
up-and-coming Cory Booker faces vicious
smear campaigns. Is it possible to stay
clean in a street
fight? It is a wild ride to see who wins and a great
insight
into how democracy, power, and race play out in urban
American
politics.
