Film screening: ANTIFA

Thursday, March 29, 7pm

Since the election of Donald Trump, acts of racist violence have proliferated across the United States. Racists and misogynists feel emboldened to express and act on their views. White nationalist groups and resurgent traditional white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan have used Trumps victory to gain new recruits. All that stands in their way are the groups of anarchists, communists, and socialists who have taken it upon themselves to prevent fascism from becoming a powerful political force in the United States. This film tells the story of what “Antifa” is and why people are using these tactics to confront racism and fascism in the US today.

Breaking the Spell: film screening and discussion on video activism

Saturday, February 17, 2018
7pm

Breaking the Spell author Chris Robé presents a visual essay that documents the rise of video activism from the 1960s to the present. Video plays an increasingly important role among activists in the growing global battles against neoliberalism. Subjectivity itself becomes a key terrain of struggle as capitalism mines it through social media sites, cell phone technology, and new “flexible” work and living patterns. As a result, alternative media production serves a central location where new forms of collective resistance can be cultivated.
