We are RE-SCREENING our first film (due to a marketing snafoo).
WHAT: Life & Debt in Jamaica
Quick blurb: Utilizing excerpts from the award-winning non-fiction text "A Small Place" by Jamaica Kincaid, Life & Debt is a woven tapestry of sequences focusing on the stories of individual Jamaicans whose strategies for survival and parameters of day-to-day existence are determined by the U.S. and other foreign economic agendas. By combining traditional documentary telling with a stylized narrative framework, the complexity of international lending, structural adjustment policies, and free trade will be understood in the context of the day-to-day realities of the people whose lives they impact. POTLUCK! (Please bring something if you can, but if you can't, come anyway! =D) (Remember: no raw food.)
WHEN: Wed., Oct. 8 @ 5:00 p.m.
FOOD: Well, we'll bring some snacks. Please feel free to bring any non-raw food stuffs, and we'll make this a potluck! =) If you can't bring anything, please come anyway!
Our next film will be Blood Diamonds on Wed., Oct. 16 @ 5 p.m. in WH-133. This will be a pot luck also, so if everyone could bring a little something, that would be awesome. However, even if you can't bring anything to eat or drink, please feel free to come anyway! After the movie, we'll talk about some of the best alternatives available to diamonds.
