*Raging Grannies: The Documentary* Special Presentation will be preceded by a 20 min short film *The Response* based on actual transcripts of the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals.
Then the Grannies will take the stage to introduce with song, the long awaited documentary covering some of their most controversial "gigs" from San Francisco to San Jose.
You'll see the Grannies in the tony town of Hillsborough in front of the Monster Cable CEO's house singing out for worker severence pay, and in San Jose raging against racism. In San Francisco the Grannies, who include in their membership folk singing legend Faith Petric, sing for women's rights by the Bay at the annual counter-protest to "pro-life" occupiers of the city.
Whether they are demonstrating against Prop 8 dressed as brides or challenging recruiters at a military enlistment center, the Raging Grannies use the streets of the SF Bay area as their stage to fight the good fight.
