From time to time Cinema Politica publishes pamphlets, booklets, and more recently, a real, physical, bonafide BOOK. We realize that we're getting into the business at the worst time possible, but hey, we're also showing films in material social spaces when everyone else seems to be focused on putting it all on the web. We love to go against the grain. And we love print. We love ink on paper so much that in the Spring of 2014 we are publishing the first Cinema Politcia reader, a collection of work by members of our doc-community to mark ten years of screening political documentaries throughout the Cinema Politica Network.The book is called Screening Truth to Power: A Reader on Documentary Activism, and can be purchased right here, or comes as a gift when you become a sustainer or make a one-time donation.
