Political movements have always inspired movies, particularly of the historical variety. But these very same films can also be an inspirational starting point for new political activism, while at the same time serving as a history lesson for the dos and don’ts of political resistance. This screening series will explore these ideas through a new film each week. Additionally, we’ll discuss how film art and the movie industry will play a role in shaping politics in the coming years. Screenings will include introduction and discussion facilitated by Wandering Reel Film Festival director, Michael Harrington.
