Film Screening: At The Top of Grasshopper’s Hill

Thursday, January 25, 7pm
With filmmaker Suneil Sanzgiri; discussion to follow with Carla Herrera-Prats

Organized in three chapters, this essayistic film examines overlapping narratives in Mexico City surrounding the Second French Empire’s invasion in Mexico in 1861 and the 1968 state-sponsored student massacre at Tlatelolco, tracing the densities and accruals of time, history, and memory, and the power structures and technologies that produce them as such.

Film screening and discussion: video activism from the 1960s to the present

Saturday, February 17, 7pm
with author Chris Robé

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. Using short-form videos and films, Chris Robé will weave a visual essay that documents the rise of video activism from the 1960s to the present.
