The Englishman's BoyVideo Cassette - 2006
This mini-series is set in two centuries and deals with two different forms of violence - the physical and the cultural. The 1873 story is of an American invasion and the slaughter of defenseless people told in the guise of a fictionalized account of the Cypress Hills Massacre. In 1920, an American film producer takes this piece of history and transforms a story of slaughter into a "heroic" tale. In other words, he makes a western, explains filmmaker Smith, "Quite a trick.".
