Young Hearts Run Free
Independent film from England

Friendship, First Loves, Rebellion! 
Young Hearts Run Free is a coming of age story about a teenager learning to value his community and appreciate collective action. 

1974; during a violent miner's strike in a quiet Northern village a teenage artist falls for the new girl from London, but their  attempts to escape make him betray his family, community and best friends. 
With political protests and the working class suffering under a crumbling economy, the 1970s setting has parallels with today.  Young Hearts Run Free is an uplifting and soulful mix of 1970s styles, romance, teenage rebellion and gritty social realism.

Debut feature made on a micro-budget has grabbed national press attention (Total Film, The Guardian), won festival awards in Britain, USA and India and has been released in cinemas around the UK. Now being released in the USA

Secret History Expedition Reportback Thursday September 11, 7pm at SubRosa Community Space, 703 Pacific Ave, Downtown Santa Cruz


As this reportback also includes a video aspect, both of the voyage and interviews with folks along the river, this d.i.y. endevour is in the realm of Guerilla Drive-In, and so we will be providing tech-support.  More info below, and I hope to see you there.



People's History Expedition on Upper Mississippi: A Reportback

A Secret History of American River People from the deck of a traditional shantyboat

Santa Cruz artist Wes Modes, with help from Kai, Jeremiah and others, built a traditional shantyboat to float down American rivers to gather the lost stories of river people. The crew just returned from the Mississippi where they spent part of the summer interviewing dozens of people who work and live on the river. The collection will serve as an archive for future scholars as well as be publicly-accessible online. When not on the river, the shantyboat itself serves as the project library and archive and will be temporarily sited at museums and galleries starting with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in November.

On Thursday September 11th, Wes, Kai and Jeremiah will offer a reportback on the journey, with photos and video.

Secret History Expedition Reportback
Thursday September 11th at 7pm
SubRosa Community Space
703 Pacific Ave, Downtown Santa Cruz

In late July, after an epic cross-country journey, California artists Wes Modes and Kai launched the shantyboat on the Mississippi River starting in Minneapolis. Joined by Jeremiah for a portion of the journey, they floated for five weeks over several hundred river miles, stopping in big and little town to interview river people. The journey is detailed in the project website at http://peoplesriverhistory.us/

*****************

Secret History is an art and history journey to discover, present, and connect the lost narratives of working-class river communities from the deck of a recreated shantyboat. A few generations ago, communities of shantyboats, or rustic houseboats, lined the banks of the river in every river town in America. Now they are mostly gone and soon the stories will be lost as well. The project is an attempt to capture and preserve some of these stories for current and future generations.

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In and Community Seed presents:

SORCERESS
(Le moine et la sorcière)


Friday, May 16th, 8pm
at SubRosa! 703 Pacific Avenue


 
A Dominican friar visits a 13th-century French village in search of heretics.

French with English subtitles. Not Rated.

***The screenwriter, Pamela Berger, is a Professor of Medieval Art History at Boston College. She also wrote a ten-page behind-the-scenes explanation of the film titled Sorceress: The Story and Scripting of the Film. It's available as a .pdf here. You should check it out when you have the time!

Angela Lansbury, along with three plucky working class kids and the dad from Mary Poppins, put the smackdown on the Nazis with a broom and some hocus pocus. This 1971 Disney animated musical was so subversive, the House on Unamerican Activities had to reconvene and investigate. Just kidding. Rated G.
