The telenovela is one of the most popular products of Latin America. It is a format that exploits the world market through the articulation and preservation of cultural difference, and at the same time serves as a powerful tool of self-representation and the re-signification of the continent’s colonial legacy. soy mi madre (2008) by Phil Collins and Crying for the March of Humanity (2012) by Christian Jankowski both employ the format of the telenovela for critical purposes that draw on the aesthetics of the melodrama to talk about issues of immigration, class and race, and the relationship between arts, media and politics.

The latest documentary by Frederick Wiseman finds the legendary documentarian turning his sights on the inner workings of the University of California, Berkeley, our nation’s most prestigious public university. At a time of financial crises, student dissatisfaction, and administrative transition, Wiseman takes a broad view. Can universities like Berkeley weather the storm in an age of rampant privatization? At Berkeley is a pe netrating look at education as a possible last bastion of an increasingly marginalized idea: “the public good.”
