A feature film by local filmmaker Antero Alli
Antero will be at the Hall in person to talk about his film

And now for a film that takes place in Berkeley! It's Christmas in the near future. An Astrologer, a closet Satanist, an Inuit opera singer and a webcast diva -- a typical Berkeley household (!) -- is forced indoors during an unexpected citywide lockdown initiated by the federal government. Ona, who has her own webcast show, thinks the feds are shifting into a full-blown police state. Her roomies think she's paranoid. Havoc and hilarity unravel as they all race to their own conclusions about what they think is happening during their escalating states of uncertainty. The challenge of perceived and genuine threats posed in this film clearly parallels the logic that lead to the Iraqi fiasco (the phony insistence of WMD and Saddam Hussein’s al-Qaeda support). It also reminds us that no one was ever arrested for the anthrax poisoning of the U.S. postal system in 2003.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House

Wheelchair accessible at 411 28th Street
