The Cinema Politica Arizona chapter was founded in May 2017 by Marta Berbés and Matt Feagan, with the support from Arizona State University’s Sustainability Events. CP Arizona has screened documentaries on food sovereignty, Indigenous resistance, race relations, migrant justice, among other topics, on ASU’s Tempe campus and in venues throughout the valley. Now in partnership with Azukar Coffee, CP Arizona is entering a new phase, screening films that: 1) support learning and community mobilizing on issues that matter to South Phoenix; 2) amplify the voices, concerns and actions of local activists; and 3) connect different social struggles to one another
Starting in March 2019, CP Arizona and Azukar Coffee will be hosting bimonthly screenings followed by an audience discussion with special guests.
CINEMA POLITICA is a non-profit network of people screening independent political films and videos to support and inspire social change. We are committed to promoting the artists who dare to devote time, passion and resources to telling stories from the margins–stories that expose the world as it is experienced by those under-represented in conventional narratives and mainstream media. Volunteer run, Cinema Politica offers an international alternative distribution network of independent documentary films for screening truth to power. All screenings are free; donations accepted.
Cinema Politica Arizona would like to thank their collaborators for their continued support.
