March 6- THE BATTLE OF CHILE (Part 3 of 3): This is the final part of
the magnificent documentary trilogy. An exultant depiction of people
becoming politicized and taking charge of their own destinies,
responding ingeniously to further acts of oppression and attempting to
reorganize every aspect of their lives along communal lines. (1979)
NOTE: This screening made possible by the Subtitling Team at PCASC.
March 13- DECONSTRUCTING SUPPER: Renowned chef John Bishop leads viewers
on a trip, starting with a gourmet meal in his five-star restaurant,
then we travel the world -- from farmer's fields to biotech laboratories
to supermarket aisles -- on a personal quest to find out what our food
choices are. (2002)
March 20- THE LIBERACE OF BAGHDAD: Award-winning portrait of Iraq, as
Sean McAllister spends eight months with Baghdad's most famous pianist,
Samir Peter; reduced to playing in a hotel bar and watching chaos
March 27- CRUDE IMPACT: This film examines our addiction to the
consumption of oil. It is revealed not as a benign power source, but as
the source of most conflict, despotic regimes and of much environmental
destruction. It is, the film argues, an addiction with extremely
unpleasant and messy side-effects.(2004)
May 1st- General Strike, and you don't even have to set your alarm! Take
the day off, join the May Day Parade, smell the roses, or, just DON'T go
to work. Only workers have enough power to stop this government. Let's
let them know we can! Enough already.
