RADICAL MOVIE NIGHT G20 Legal Fundraiser
RADICAL MOVIE NIGHT
G20 Legal Fundraiser
On Friday December 3rd we will be hosting a radical movie night to raise funds for our friends and allies facing G20 related legal charges.
Come join us for an amazing night of movies, drinks, board games, snacks, hanging out, and all around rockin good times.
7pm – 9pm: Land and Freedom (Tierra y Libertad)
Directed by Ken Loach, this 1995 film narrates the story of David Carr, an unemployed worker of the Communist Party of Great Britain, who decides to fight for the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. A heart wrenching portrayal of the attempt by ordinary people to build an anarchist society, and its subsequent betrayal. The movie won the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.
10:30-midnight: What to do in Case of Fire (Was tun, wenn’s brennt?)
Directed by Gregor Schnitzler, this 2002 film tells the humorous and touching story of six anarchist friends living as squatters in Berlin in the 80s, when they leave a handcrafted bomb in a mansion. Only thirteen years later the bomb explodes, wounding two people, forcing the group to reunite and, ultimately, come to grips with the reason they separated years ago.
Pay what you can (suggested $5-10). Come for one or both movies.
All proceeds go to the G20 Legal Defence Fund.
