Overview

Reel Rebels examines major films by directors who have been called auteurs by some and hacks by others.

'Rebel' is a word that is tossed around too flippantly these days. Who is truly a Reel Rebel? Someone who creates cinema that is original, timely and critical of a historical period and citizenry; someone who paints with celluloid in a way that sets him/her apart from others in the industry; someone whose films elicit love or vilification from audiences; someone whose cinema entertains moviegoers and makes them think - and feel ashamed, guilty, happy, and sad. A Reel Rebel is someone who challenges men and women to reevaluate the way we label and treat each other; someone whose motion pictures rouse viewers to action; someone who keeps making movies regardless of whether or not s/he has major studio backing.

Reel Rebels features insightful criticism by Thomas J. Morrissey, Kelly L. Goodridge, Tracie Church Guzzio, Lou Orfanella, Kathy Davis Patterson, and Oscar De Los Santos.
