Second Monday Movie Committee

February Movie - Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade

Monday, February 12th @ 7pm @ 4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis

From Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama, from Margaret Thatcher to Tony Blair, Shadow World reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade, the only business that counts it profits in billions and its losses in human lives.

Based on The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, the acclaimed book by Andrew Feinstein, the film explores how governments, their militaries and intelligence agencies, defense contractors, arms dealers and agents are inextricably intertwined with the international trade in weapons, and how that trade fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracies and creates human suffering.

Connecting the dots...Forum, film, discussion.

March Movie - (T)ERROR

Monday, March 12th @ 7pm @ 4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis

(T)ERROR is the first documentary to place filmmakers on the ground during an active FBI counterterrorism sting operation. Unfolding with the drama and intrigue of a spy novel, (T)ERROR follows Saeed "Shariff" Torres, a 63-year-old Black revolutionary turned informant, as he takes on what he swears is his last job for the FBI, and invites filmmakers to document his covert efforts to befriend a suspected jihadist - without informing his superiors. As surprising revelations emerge, not only about Torres' past, but also about the increasingly murky ethical grounds of his present mission, (T)ERROR explores just how far we are going to prevent terror and exactly the liberties we are sacrificing to get there. (T)ERROR debuted at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and has since played at more than 40 festivals around the world. The film has been featured on This American Life, Democracy Now and The New York Times.
