104. NFB — The Contest for Power (Revised) — 28 min 16 s
Change is neither easy nor even. In this film you see neighboring countries in North Africa and the Middle East with vastly different forms of government. In monarchies, all power resides in a king; in others, military juntas rule. Here and there democratic governments hold power. Everywhere, from Iraq to Algeria, the ferment of change shows in many ways. Part four of the revised seven—part series.
