FW: [guerilla-drive-in] PUNISHMENT PARK at Santa Cruz GDI this

A reminder friends, about GDI happening this Friday, September 26th (the fancy graphic was swallowed somewhere in the cyber-void, but all the info is still there).


A political parable imagined as a horror film and made to look like a documentary, Peter Watkins' 1971 cult legend,
Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents:

Punishment Park

Faced with a growing anti-war movement, President Nixon decrees a state of emergency based on the McCarran Internal Security Act of 1950 , which authorizes federal authorities, without reference to Congress, to detain persons judged to be a "risk to internal security". Members from the anti-war movement, civil rights movement, feminist movement, conscientious objectors, and Communist party, mostly University students, are arrested and face an emergency tribunal made up of community members. With state and federal jails at their top capacity, the convicted face the option of spending their full conviction time in federal prison or three days at Punishment Park

Friday September 26th, 8PM
Under the Soquel Bridge, Santa Cruz
(Always Free!)

PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, and great company.

BRING lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, friends, wine, & food to share for intermission. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project. (We are currently saving for a helicopter and a pony.) 
SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.

URBAN WASTELAND LOCATION:  from downtown Santa Cruz, go east on Soquel. Then, when you cross the river, go right. We will be right under the bridge you just went over!
