City So Real (2019) – MIFF Review

While the results of the Chicago mayoral election have nothing to do with me in any possible manner, I loved watching this 4-part documentary. Filmmaker Steve James takes us through many parts of Chicago, at times following the many mayoral candidates as they fulfil the bureaucratic steps to be on the ballot and through their campaigns, or going into the corners of everyday life in Chicago.

I found this utterly fascinating. A real snapshot in a time of Black Lives Matter, or governmental and police corruption, of change and history-making.
