" ... the story of the rise and fall of a dictator is just the set dressing, the vehicle, for asking some disturbing questions about human nature and our need/lust for power, one country over another, men over women, parent over child. How are the worlds of politics, international, civil and sexual, intertwined? And what is it that compels us to seek domination in each of those arenas when it's been proven time and again that the only way to attain ultimate power over another being is to take away that person's or country's life and spirit?"--Director's program notes
