Saturday, February 18th we will be continuing with the Black History month theme with the historical drama “Freedom Riders,” about interracial groups who challenged racial segregation in the American South by using civil disobedience, sitting on buses where they were not allowed.

Next Week at Cinema Academica:

February 25th we will be changing gears, and talking about ‘what is really going on in Syria,’ with some critiques of different media representations of what is going on politically vs the story the media is telling us.

Michael Goguen will animate a film clip mashup on Solutions to the economic crisis. These clips will provide a lot of context and insight as to where we are right now as a culture, particularly in relation to some of the economic situation the world is experiencing. These are primarily focused on solutions.
