Join us at The People’s Forum for our Freedom Summer Film Series!
As we begin the reopening of our space, every Friday evening in June we will show a film in our screening room.
This is a free, educational program, however, in order to maintain a safe capacity level, we ask that you leave a $6 deposit to reserve your participation. You will be refunded your deposit upon arrival or if you cancel. Please have your confirmation email ready when you arrive.
Freedom Summer Films is a series that aims to explore the humanity and the creativity of the many struggles against imperialism, colonialism, capitalism at home and abroad, and we hope to leave inspired for a future of liberation through community and love. We know that cultural expression is one of the most powerful forms of political education, and we hope you join us for these collective viewings!
FREEDOM SUMMER FILM SERIES | CUBAN ROOTS / BRONX STORIES
About “CUBAN ROOTS / BRONX STORIES”
Cuban Roots/Bronx Stories highlights the historical journey of an Afro-Cuban family, from Jamaica, to Cuba, to the Bronx, revealing that the Cuban-American experience is more diverse, racially and ideologically, than we are often led to believe. Diana, Ruben, and Pablo reveal stories of growing political awareness, overcoming the dangers of the streets, and coming into their own as Afro-Latinos.
We will be having a 30-minute Q&A after the film with the director Pamela Sporn, and family members from the film. This event is co-sponsored by Third World Newsreel.
Year: 2000 | Director: Pamela Sporn | Duration: 57 min
