As an Act of Protest Returns to NYC!

The insanity of racism.  The terror of truth.  The horror of repeating history. The pain of consciousness.  And the power of art.

For obvious reasons, movies bearing a genuine social consciousness revealing our political climate are needed now more than ever. Not bright-light-Hollywood Drone– productions. But hand-made cinematic ‘Molotov cocktails.’ A Protest Cinema.

On August 9, 2019 The People’s Forum will host a revival screening of As an Act of Protest slowly setting the stage for the imminent DVD release in the fall. Gritty, powerful and provocative movies can remind us of the power of drama and the impact artistic foresight has.

Not a superhero movie, but a film about the real desperation of trying to address the problem that something is “rotten in the state of Denmark.” If the new generations of activists want to advance theories, techniques, dialectics, and problem solving within the web of social diseases and political oppression ‎in America, they can start by dusting off the artworks that were created for them to be inspired by and to challenge. 

All revolutions need art. And this is just one example.

Spread the word!
