MUMIA ABU-JAMAL FIRST INTERNATIONALIST FILM FESTIVAL
(Info taken from http://refuseandresist.org/new/calendar.php)
Opening Night Program:
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.
All shows are $5-20 sliding scale - Friday's program is one show, Saturday evening is two separate shows. Festival ticket $20
