This event has been postponed for Fall 2020.
Rescheduled from February 8:
RocPPC is a regional chapter of the national Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, a nationwide movement to unite the poor and impact political discourse around poverty in America. This screening will focus on the act of organized marching as a form of political protest from the 1960’s to today. Featuring films from the VSW archive as well as a recent video by filmmaker and activist Peter Kinoy, this screening aims to answer the question “Why march?” and motivate participation in organized acts of peaceful protest. Filmmaker Peter Kinoy in attendance.
The Community Curator program invites representatives from social justice-focused community groups in the Rochester region to curate film screenings using VSW’s collection of over 9,000 film and video titles.
The VSW Film Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
