Film Screening: Far From Poland

Tuesday, September 11, 7pm

In 1980, American filmmaker Jill Godmilow was coincidentally in Poland when a shipyard strike led to a social movement around the first independent labor union in a Soviet-bloc country. But when Godmilow tried to return to Poland to film, her visa entry was denied. In Far From Poland, she sets out to literally reinvent the documentary form by scrutinizing her original intention to make agitprop. The resulting film depicts the workers movement against the “workers state” and points to futures outside the absurd duality of the Cold War.

Screening the Red Army Faction: a discussion with Christina Gerhardt

Friday, August 10, 8pm

Screening the Red Army Faction explores representations of the Red Army Faction (RAF) in print media, film and art. The book contributes both a new history and a new cultural history of post-fascist era West Germany that grapples with the fledgling republic’s most pivotal debates about the nature of democracy and authority; about violence, its motivations and regulation; and about its cultural afterlife. At the heart of this project rest questions about what role media playing in social movements. Author Christina Gerhardt will lead a discussion about corporate representations of social movements as well as the self-presentation of movements, with a focus on West Berlin, in the late sixties.

NO RNC Oral History Listening Party

Tuesday, August 7, 7pm

Before there was “The Resistance” there was mass resistance to the Republican policy-agenda during the George W. Bush administration. During this previous wave of anti-Republican Party resistance, activists aligned with the Global Justice Movement regularly mobilized mass street demonstrations at party conventions and economic summits. The NO RNC 2004 Oral History Project documents the organizing efforts that led to a month’s worth of events and demonstrations in New York City during August and September 2004. Join us for a listening party to hear audio from the project’s first 15 interviews and an exploration of visual materials from the demonstrations.
