I'm planning to see it soon with comrades.

You should try to catch Sin Nombre, about Latino immigrants to the US. It is opening this week.

Ok I will.-
Don't miss Waltz with Bashir.Excellent animation,based on real facts took place in Lebanon back at 1982.
More specific:
The Sabra and Shatila massacre (or Sabra and Chatila massacre) was a massacre of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians carried out between September 16 and 18, 1982 by the Lebanese Forces Christian militia group. The Israeli Defense Force (IDF), in control of Beirut, surrounded Beirut's Palestinian refugee camps immediately after the assassination of Phalangist leader and president-elect Bachir Gemayel two days before, then allowed Lebanese Phalangist militiamen to enter two of these refugee camps, Sabra and Shatila.
The Phalangists stood under the direct command of Elie Hobeika, who later became a long-serving Lebanese Member of Parliament and, in the 1990s, a cabinet minister. The Israeli military's Chief of Staff was Lt. General Rafael Eitan, and Israel's Defence Minister was Ariel Sharon.
