Meet the Filmmaker: Discussion with Director John Sayles, moderated by Susanna Styron.

With U.S. troops occupying his village during the Philippine-American War, the mayor comes under pressure to help the Americans in their hunt for guerrilla fighters. The mayor’s brother, the head of the local guerrillas, considers anyone who cooperates with the Americans to be a traitor, and he finds himself forced to make the impossible, potentially deadly decisions faced by ordinary civilians in an occupied country. USA, 2010, 124 minutes. Unrated

“Mr. Sayles frequently allows his ideas about how the world works to be overridden (or undermined) by his curiosity about how people behave. . . .All in all, he is a pretty good history teacher, the kind who knows how to make even difficult lessons entertaining and relevant.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
