Lovers + Liberators: A Benefit for the Red Vic
Tue Feb 8 2011 (Updated 02/15/11)
Fundraiser Aims to Save 30-Year Old Worker-Owned Red Vic Movie House
On Saturday, February 12th, a benefit is being held for the Red Vic Movie House on Haight Street in San Francisco. Organizers state that "San Francisco is dangerously close to losing this 30-year old worker-owned community establishment. All the filmmakers and speakers in this series are donating 100% the box office revenue to the keep the Red Vic's doors open so they can continue to give voice to films like these that [the] mainstream does NOT want you you to see!"

Lovers + Liberators is a fund-raising event for the Red Vic that brings together three films with the themes of liberation and domestic "terrorism". The line-up includes ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE (1996), a documentary about the Black Panther Party and COINTELPRO, BOLD NATIVE (2010), addressing domestic “terrorism” and animal liberation, and THE SPOOK WHO SAT BY THE DOOR (1973), in which a CIA trainee turns out to be a black nationalist who goes on to train his own group of "Freedom Fighters" to engage in guerrilla warfare. Speakers throughout the screenings include Claude Marks of the Freedom Archives and Richard Brown of the SF8 on their experiences as targets of COINTELPRO; Jake Conroy, an animal liberation activist of 15 years and SHAC7 co-defendent who spent three years in federal prison as a result of his above-ground activism targeting Huntington Life Sciences and Ben Rosenfeld, a Bay area lawyer who's focusing his efforts defending Green Scare defendants; and Bold Native filmmakers Casey Suchan and Denis Henry Hennelly.
