It’s Time For ACTION! New Summer Series at EPFC!

EPFC | May 7th, 2017

ACTION! Cinema As Sanctuary

Political documentary films take on a renewed role amid a reinvigorated rage against immigrants, refugees and people of color in many places around the world. Through politically engaged cinematic work, many filmmakers are confronting old and new forms of racism, the deepening ungrievability of Black and Brown lives, and precarious realities faced by minority communities including indigenous peoples, the elderly, refugees, women and children. ACTION! Cinema As Sanctuary features political documentary films and filmmaking workshops that re-assert the images and stories that remind us that a compassionate world rooted upon solidarity, friendship, and collective action is possible.

All events are FREE! Check the EPFC Cinema and Workshop calendars for more details.

Curated Nerve Macaspac of the Echo Park Film Center, with special support provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
