How f*ck*d up and funky can American politics get? See for yourself in the next monthly Ironweed film night. Watch 3 award-winning, short docs about an unblinking look at 2004 election day in a poor town in the contested Ohio, a whacked mayoral campaign in urban NJ, and a former US Vice President laying down some funky beats in the name of voter education.
Come for the FREE films and FREE popcorn. BYOB. Stay for the conversation with young anarchists, Pissed Off Voters, and Station40 co-op members.

Street Fight – An Oscar-nominated doc about a bare-knuckle mayoral campaign in the housing projects of Newark, NJ. A political machine, smear campaigns, charges of not being “really black”, and a Yale grad living in public housing to keep it real – all make appearances in this insightful film about how democracy, power, and race play out in urban American politics.
No Umbrella - An unblinking look at 2004 Election Day failures in one of the poorest towns in the most hotly contested state.
Battleground Minnesorta – US politicians, including a former VP, lay down some funky beats in the name of voter education.
