Reflections on an American Radical

stockholm on Monday, October 11, 2010

On September 27, 2010, Cinema Politica Stockholm screened a documentary entitled American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein at the Stockholm University.
Volunteers at Cinema Politica Stockholm have been hard at work over the past couple weeks. The labor has consisted of handing out flyers, sitting at tables, talking to new students, and watching movies among other strenuous tasks. But the team is ready for the launch of its second season on Sept. 13 presenting the light-hearted look at Chinese children and democracy, Please Vote for Me. After choosing the films and creating posters and flyers, the team has focused their efforts both online and face-to-face. In addition to Facebook, Cinema Politica Stockholm is now on Twitter in order to communicate last-minute changes and other interesting information from time to time. In the real world, new students at Stockholm University got to meet the team behind the Stockholm local and received information and flyers about Cinema Politica, and a tasty confectionary treat as well.
We are pleased to announce that the winner of the 2009 Cinema Politica Audience Choice Award is American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein. This time around we had an overwhelming response from Cinema Politica voters, with thousands casting their ballots - thanks to all who participated. H2Oil came in at second place while Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai rounded out third place. American Radical is one of our favourite films and we are delighted to see that our audiences agree! We will be giving out the award to the film's directors, Nicolas Rossier and David Ridgen this summer, and next month we will randomly choose our three lucky prize winners among those who voted. Thanks again to all who participated, despite the process occuring a little late in the year this time, and if you haven't watched American Radical yet, find out where it's screening and go see it (and our two runners-up films are pretty damn good too).
