films/videos dealing with power

dear all:
i'm putting together several classes that deal with power - different
varieties of power relations between those filmed and those doing the
filming. this could be extreme (or less extreme) interactions where
the filmmaker/cameraperson has power (most typical) or where it's
firmly in the hands of the people being filmed. This power can come
through the presence of the camera, through verbal interaction, or
anything else.

I'm most interested in those cases which would make the audience feel
uneasy/queasy watching.
