Second Monday Movie Committee

December Movie - Dolores on Monday, December 10 @ 7pm

4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century-and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one's life to social change. Directed by Peter Bratt. This acclaimed film has won numerous awards at national film festivals. 

(2017, director: Peter Bratt; 1 hr 35 mn, Documentary)

January Movie - The World is My Country on Monday, January 14 @ 7pm

4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis

Offers relief from a World of Politics Gone Mad!

A Song & Dance Man on a Mission to Save the Earth! The true story of the daring, controversial, decades-ahead-of-his-time World Citizen #1 Garry Davis. A song and dance man desperate to stop a war, pulls off an act of political theatre so gutsy and eye-opening that it sparks a huge movement—drawing Albert Einstein, Albert Camus and a cast of thousands into a story Martin Sheen calls “a roadmap to a better future.”
