The Young Marx

Mar 27th, 2018 1:00 pm

Film & Discussion
70 pesos

Oscar nominated Haitian director Raoul Peck( “I’m Not Your Negro”) takes up the life and works of Karl Marx, instigator of one of the most important social revolutions in history, along with his friend Frederick Engels.
From the excellent dialogue, acting, editing, the intermingling of languages depending on the locations, and the delicate music, he pulls us into the young lives of Marx and Engels in the 1840s, as they took on the incredible idea of setting workers free and giving them decent wages. It was a dangerous and revolutionary idea for the times.
From Germany to Manchester, Paris, London and Brussels, Peck follows dedicated men and women who believed in the new idea of equality and freedom from the slave labor of the Industrial Revolution – a revolution that had benefited the industrialists and condemned the workers to poverty and horrific living conditions.

Pluralist Commonwealth & Cheran

Mar 28th, 2018 1:00 pm

Film
70 pesos
With the long decline in US manufacturing and today's economic crisis, millions have been thrown out of work, and many are losing their homes. The usual economic solutions are not working, so some citizens and public officials are ready to think outside of the box, to reinvent our failing economy in order to restore long term community stability and a more egalitarian way of life.
Historian and political economist Gar Alperovitz points us to these alternatives. His documentary film “The Next American Revolution” describes alternatives already in the making in thousands of communities across the US – cooperatives, community land trusts and other such grassroots institutions that can check monopolistic corporate power, democratize wealth and empower communities. Alperovitz argues that these can take us beyond corporate capitalism without ending up in state socialism. He makes a convincing case that we are in the midst of a great transformation of our society that will better realize core American values.
