In New York City, in this future time, a group of women decide to organize and mobilize, to take the revolution farther than any man – and many women – ever imagined in their lifetimes.
The time is the near future. The place in New York City, a decade after a peaceful revolution has ensured that all men are equal. That’s all MEN, leaving the women to voice their discontent and forge their own liberation. When Adelaide Norris (Jean Satterfield), the black radical founder of the Woman’s Army, is mysteriously killed, a diverse coalition of women – across all lines of race, class, and sexual preference – emerges to blow the System apart.
Film starts at 7.30pm.
Set in Oakland, California, a story of two friends who work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities.
A “timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop, and spoken word.”
Film starts at 7.30pm. Bring popcorn and friends!
