Upcoming film series:

After 911 (2004, 60 min) Oct 27

This innovative documentary tracks the emergence of an Age of InfoTerror from the September 11 terrorist attack to the war with Iraq. The hour-long film, produced in collaboration with Udris Productions, uses a montage of multi-media to explore the powerful new matrix of terror, technology, and information warfare in the 21st century. It features a broad range of scholars and journalists, artists and writers, governmental and military officials. http://www.infopeace.org/after911

Office Space (1999, 89 min) Nov 3

Work sucks. Comedic tale of company workers who hate their jobs and decide to rebel against their greedy boss.

Harlan County, U.S.A. (1976, 103 min) Nov 10

This film documents the coal miners' strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mining Company in Harlan County, Kentucky in June, 1973. Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to the strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.

when submitting an article, you have the option of listing it as an announcement, which i did. so clearly this is appropriate for the "newswire"

listings of free events at the Lucy Parsons Center IS news for boston radical folks, but clearly not for IMC trolls. big surprise.
