Film Details and Festival Schedule

Friday, April 23, 7pm
Amandla! A Revolution in Four Part Harmony - Tells the story of black South African freedom music and the central role it played against apartheid. The first film to specifically consider the music that sustained and galvanized black South Africans for more than 40 years, Amandla!'s focus is on the struggle's spiritual dimension, as articulated and embodied in song. Named for the Xhosa word for "power", Amandla! Lives up to this title, telling an uplifting story of human courage, resolve and triumph.
We Shall Bend, But We Will Never Break - A work in progress by Pacifica reporter and documentarian Kevin Pena depicting the effects of U.S. policy in Haiti and the determination of the Haitian people to fulfill the 200-year struggle for national sovereignty and social justice.

Saturday, April 24
12pm - Voice of the Voiceless - Like spoken word in motion, local activist/director Tanya Cuevas Martinez' beautifully crafted work tells the story of Mumia the activist from death row and the hip-hop community he has inspired including notable artists and activists Michael Franti, Dead Prez, Mos Def, Gil Scott Heron et al.

Followed by March and Rally

7pm - The Fourth World War - Depicts the variety and breadth of global resistance to the New World Disorder from Chiapas to South Korea, and many countries and movements in between. A powerful radical cry from the frontlines of the war on people, this film captures the spirit of resistance: it is as beautiful and global as humanity itself. Featuring Michael Franti and Suheir Hammad and music by Manu Chao, Asian Dub Foundation, Ozomatli, Mum, DJ Moosaka, DJ Splice, Muslimguaze, Gotan Project and EOSS. A Big Noise Film.

9pm - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised - Inside the Venezuelan Presidential Palace before during and after the U.S. financed and instigated coup of Hugo Chavez in 2002 and how the working people of Caracas defeated it and returned Chavez to power in 48 hours. Winner of over 20 awards, this film shows the power of the common people when mobilized and united.

All shows are $5-20 sliding scale - Friday's program is one show, Saturday evening is two separate shows. Festival ticket $20.
