I’ve seen two of these films — the deeply moving “Laramie Inside Out” about the killing of gay student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming, and just a few weeks ago the Arizona women’s film “Vote” about the importance of voting and the continued fight for women’s reproductive rights. And I have yet to see recently released “Cyanide Beach” about the same people who are proposing the Rosemont Mine in Southern Arizona.
