HOPIUM: CONFRONTING FASCISM IN THE OBAMA ERA

An evening of radical films with subMedia's Franklin Lopez
aka the stimulator

Friday May 29th, 8pm at SubRosa, 703 N. Pacific Ave.
$5-$10 suggested donation (no one turned away)

An evening of radical films including:

-Excerpts from a film in production called "END:CIV. END:CIV is the first feature film to analyze our culture's addiction to systemic violence, industrial capitalism and environmental exploitation, as evidenced by the current epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based on the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, and the runaway success of director Franklin Lopez, END:CIV asks: if your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist? This showing is also a fund raiser for continued production of this project.

-GROUND NOISE & STATIC- A video report on the protests that occurred in connection with the Democrat and Republican National Conventions. Ground Noise & Static is a manifesto. We went to Denver and St. Paul to take the pulse of the movement. Corporate media would cover the platitudes and posturing of the politicians, we were interested in something else, a story hidden in plain sight, captured in the now-classic street chant, "This is what democracy looks like."

-Plus other short films and mashups, including excerpts from the radio/web/TV show
"It's the End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine".

Please join subMedia founder, director and producer Franklin
Lopez(aka The Stimulator) as he steps out from behind the
talking boxes to tour us through a video montage of his
latest works, mixing culturejamming, news, radical
commentary, music and action.
