[guerilla-drive-in] Being John Brown & Guerilla Drive In Present "Post Racial Short Film Festival" This Friday Feb. 12

Po s t - R a c i a l

Short Film Festival

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 12th at 8:00 pm

SubRosa infoshop, 703 Pacific Ave Downtown Santa Cruz

Now that we're all post-racial and shit, let's bust out the bubbly and celebrate!!! It's been a year since racism ended in America and it's time to take stock of our history and take a deeper look at our shiny new post-racial nation. This will be an evening of short films and discussion hosted by the anti-racist group Being John Brown.

Themes will include everything from how to call out your local racist to hip hop, hair, the white power movement, baby dolls, what solidarity can look like, blaxploitation, and of course, the resulting racial tension headaches!

BEING JOHN BROWN is a group of activists committed to challenging and actively confronting white supremacy, including lampooning the absurd notion of an extant "Post-Racial" America with actual fact.

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up in the fields and industrial wastelands. But tonight it's gonna be indoors. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment:

BRING pillows, blankets, and snacks to share. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support Guerilla Drive In. (And really, you should totally toss your couch change their way. I mean, come on, if you had paid ten bucks a pop for every GDI movie you've seen, that'd be at least, say, ten bucks. Minimum. Flip a bill in that sexy little mason jar, pal. All the cool kids are doing it.)
