This Friday, "Oakland Artists" a local nonprofit arts organization, is bringing together stories from the people of Venezuela in an effort to bridge the gap between cultures and facilitate discussion. The program will feature a screening of the film "First Fruits" which documents the rise of "endogenous development" a practice where each community produces much of what it needs to survive, increasing local revenue and reducing imports.
After the film there will be a discussion on the Bolivarian Revolution and the social and political changes being implemented by President Hugo Chavez featuring Venezuelan Activist Yeiber Cano, Oakland activist and artist Peter Spannagle and Emily Kurland.
