A communal Trump-piñata-pounding (!) joins the two hemispheres of this double-header–powerful and poetic film commentaries, sounding out contemporary issues in both the international relations sphere and in the Americas. The opening “global” set premieres "Max" (Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer) Pozdorovkin’s hilarious "Our New President", Laura Poitras’ chilling Project X, and Elizabeth Lo’s soul-shattering Hotel 22, plus briefs by Kelly Gallagher and Dominic Gagnon. Post-piñata, the program rallies under the "No-Thanks Giving" rubric, with four enlightened cine-essays on and by Native Americans: Caitlin Manning’s (in person) Zapatista-centered "Dispatches from Mexico", Adam (Inaate/Se) Khalil’s "Violence of a Society without Secrets", Sky Hopinka’s "Visions of an Island", and the anti-DAPL "Bonfires and Spotlights".
