Film Screening: Mexican Dream (Sueño Mexicano) and The Kelleys, filmmakers in attendance September 25, 7pm

MEXICAN DREAM is a film about the contradictions in the public discourse towards immigration. It is a story of economic desperation and societal alienation on both sides of the border: the people of Magdalena Peñasco in Oaxaca, Mexico, who go to Austin, Minnesota, to quarter pigs for Hormel Foods, the makers of Spam products. Communities change with migration, and in the process of adapting the old can sometimes not assimilate with the new. Filmmaker Jon and then-Ph.D. student Alex Euler document part of this uneasy transition.

Film Night: Positive Force—More Than a Witness

Friday August 21, 2015

Punk activist collective Positive Force DC emerged in 1985, rising from the creative, politically-charged ferment of DC punk’s Revolution Summer. Born in a dynamic local scene sparked by Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and Rites of Spring, a handful of young activists also drew inspiration from UK anarcho-punks Crass and the original “Positive Force” band Seven Seconds to become one of the most long-lasting and influential exponents of punk politics. This feature-length film by Robin Bell skillfully mixes rare archival footage with new interviews of key Positive Force activists.
