Military Option

Military Option
By Al Santana & Alonzo Speight
Produced by Third World Newsreel

Women, money and travel. It's still the hook that military recruiters are using on young men, as two students discover at a Queens recruitment office. A look at the military recruitment process through a mixture of performance and the experiences of two young men of color.

"Al Santana exists at the perfect intersection of technical mastery, aesthetic ingenuity and political involvement. Each element can be found in a lot of good filmmaking, but all three together are a rarity."
- Jake Perlin, BAMcinematek, Brooklyn Academy of Music
