Guest blogger Stefan Christoff shares with us an amazing new political music video directed by RT!
It's been two weeks since we launched our new website, which, if you're reading this, you've likely checked out. We needed these last days to catch our breath after weeks of preparing for the launch party, which was also our 7 year anniversary party here in Montreal. On April 1 we had over 250 people pack the cozy little gallery space of Control Lab (on St. Laurent) for an evening of live music, DJs, dancing, chatting, and even door prizes. It was a fantastic party and achieved our goal of bringing together artists, activists and audiences to hang out, let loose and celebrate seven exciting years of Cinema Politica.
For those in the Montreal area, Cinema Politica will be tabling at the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair this weekend (May 29-30). Every year we support this excellent event as we believe in connecting the art of documentary with social justice and social movements. This year we'll actually have some wares to sell (on a sliding scal price of course). We'll have our new CP tshirts, plus many of DVDs of the films we show throughout our network. Come by and say hi and support anarchism! Info on the event below... Montreal Anarchist BookfairMAY 29-30, 10am-5pm at the CEDA, 2515 rue Delisle (a short walk from Lionel-Groulx metro) The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair — and month-long Festival of Anarchy — bring together anarchist ideas and practice, through words, images, music, theatre and day-to-day struggles for justice, dignity and collective liberation. The Bookfair is for people who don’t necessarily consider themselves anarchists, but are curious about anarchism, as well as a space for anarchists to meet, network and share in a spirit of respect and solidarity. All are welcome. The Bookfair is organized in a spirit of openness towards the different traditions, visions, and practices of anarchism. Together we share a commitment to promoting anarchism through the values of mutual aid, grassroots democracy, direct action, autonomy and solidarity, while opposing oppression in all its forms.
