Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice explores the intersection of social justice and spirituality in documentary cinema. As a sidebar program of documentary screenings, the project looks at the roles spirituality, religion and secularism play in fostering or inhibiting a plurality of perspectives, as well as understanding across cultural, religious, and ethnic borders, and lastly participation in social causes, campaigns and movements.

While documentary is in itself an art form, often called "informational art," documentaries that focus on other art forms or artists working in various art milieus are uniquely positioned as works that examine art via art. With this special selection of films we celebrate the impulse to make art about art.

CP at Encuentro 2014

June 22, 2014 - June 28, 2014

In the summer of 2014 Cinema Politica teams up with the Hemispheric Institute to screen political fiction, documentary and experimental works from across the Americas.

CP AT THE PEOPLE’S SOCIAL FORUM 2014

August 21, 2014 - August 24, 2014

In August of 2014 Cinema Politica teams up with the People’s Social Forum to host film screenings, a book launch and a workshop on documentary activism.

For the last decade (2003-2013) Cinema Politica has built a strong reputation for connecting audiences to important, under-represented, independent film and video. While the films we program tend to focus on issues, topics and subjects that revolve around social justice, identity and the environment, we have decided to seek out, program and disseminate titles that specifically highlight the intersection of social justice, the economy and the environment, in a special program called "The Commons."
