Progressive Film Club

Corruption In the Spanish police force and a look back at the Occupy movement – last screening before the summer break.

A reminder about this weekend’s films: 

When: Saturday 27th June
Where:
Pearse Centre (27 Pearse Street)

2:30 p.m.  Autumn Sun
Autumn Sun tells the story of Occupy Oakland, which was part of Occupy Wall Street, a movement that swept the United States in 2011 and 2012 in response to inequality and injustice. Occupy Oakland was always a special case. However, the city’s deep history of radical politics and active social movements meant that Occupy Oakland would demand more and compromise less. This film documents the movement’s dynamic story.

  • Directed by David Martinez.

3:10 p.m. Ciutat Morta [Dead City]
11111On 8 June 2013 eight hundred people entered an abandoned cinema in Barcelona to view a documentary film.

The old building is renamed Cinema Patricia Heras in honour of a young woman who committed suicide two years earlier. But who was Patricia? Why did she take her life?

How is her death related to Barcelona? The answers to these questions, and the truth about one of the worst cases of police corruption in Barcelona, are sought by this action.

  • Directed by Xavier Artigas and Xapo Ortega.
