The Great Book Robbery

1 Comment

Books.  If you care about them – what they contain, what they mean, how richly they can embody our lives, our stories and our cultures – please don’t miss the gripping new documentary, The Great Book Robbery, by Israeli filmmaker Benny Brunner.   See it here.

Author: Michael Riordon

Canadian writer and documentary-maker Michael Riordon writes/ directs/produces books and articles, audio, video and film documentaries, plays for radio and stage. A primary goal of his work is to recover voices and stories of people who have been silenced or marginalized, written out of the official version: First Nations (aboriginal) youth, Mozambican farmers, inmates in Canadian prisons, traditional healers in Fiji, queer folk across Canada, Guatemalan labour activists. Michael also leads courses, workshops and seminars for community organizations, trade unions, schools, colleges and universities.

One thought on “The Great Book Robbery

  1. I took the time to watch the Great Book Robbery, learned a lot, and was moved a lot too. Those who told the story and explained the outrage remain hopeful, demanding, expectant even. Thanks for connecting me to it Michael, I will pass it on by getting more people to link to your blog. Alan
