"If you don’t have anything worth dying for, find something.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine is an illuminating and moving documentary by award-winning producer Connie Fields (Have You Heard from Johannesburg, The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter). The film follows an African-American choir on their journey in the West Bank of the Occupied Palestinian Territories as they sing in a play that brings Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights struggle to a Palestinian audience. Beyond its excellent production quality, Al Helm—Arabic for “the dream”— has great crossover potential because it shows several (largely) apolitical, Black Americans meeting a people still locked in the nightmare of oppression. Their experiences at first seem just confusing to them, then political, and ultimately political and very personal.
