2019 Oakland Greens free movie series
by Vicente Cruz (contact [at] oaklandgreens.org)
Monday Dec 24th, 2018 5:41 PM
On January 27th, 2019, the Oakland Greens (OGP) will recommence their “FREE Dinner & Movie Discussion Night” held on the “Last Sundays” of every month except November & December. Join them for what will be yet another year of provocative movies followed by a thoughtful discussion led by the OGP’s Coordinator Vicente Cruz. As usual, the door at the It’s Your Move Games and Hobbies store, at 4920 Telegraph Avenue in the historical Temescal District, will open at 6:30 p.m., a free dinner will be served at 7 p.m., and the movie will start promptly at 7:30 p.m.
We will begin with a Norwegian dark fantasy film entitled “Trollhunter” (2010).
For observance of Black History Month, we will show “I Am Not Your Negro” 2016 - a documentary film based on James Baldwin's unfinished writings.

Because I’m a 1968 Olympics sports fan, in March we will show “Glory Road” (2006) - a true story surrounding the events leading to the 1966 NCAA Basketball Championship.
We take a turn in April with “What Happened, Miss Simone?” (2015) – a film that chronicles the life of a brilliant, but troubled, folk/jazz/soul diva.

With White Nationalists feeling free to wave swastikas in the streets and shoot up synagogues, in May we will screen “Conspiracy” 2001 - dramatization of the 1942 Nazi conference to plan a “final solution” to the so-called “Jewish problem.”

In June, we look at where artificial intelligence might take us and what it might think of us with the showing of “Her" (2013).”

Even though freedom of the press is under attack and the conservative media increasingly targets vulnerable people, there are still reporters who want to get out the truth, so in July we will feature “The Post” (2017).

August keeps us in the media with “Spotlight” (2015) – a biographical film about child sex abuse in the Boston area by numerous Roman Catholic priests.

In September we will show “Pan’s Labyrinth” (2006) - one of the greatest of all fantasy films, even though it is anchored firmly in the reality of war.

We will end in October with "Even the Rain" (Spanish: "También la lluvia") (2010) in today's New World where water is the new gold.

The Oakland Greens look forward to seeing you Last Sunday of the month at It’s Your Move Games and Hobbies 4620 Telegraph Ave. Oakland 6:30 P.M. dinner 7:30 P.M. movie discussion.

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
