Second Monday Movie Committee

July Movie - Killing Gaza

Monday, July 9 @ 7pm
4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis

“A moralizing and heart-wrenching call to action” – McDill Daily

While giving voice to the pain of a people under siege, Cohen and Blumenthal also highlighted Gazans’ inspiring acts of creative resistance, from painting to break-dancing to literature, that allow them to maintain their humanity in the face of deprivation and war.

Killing Gaza is much more than a documentary about Palestinian resilience and suffering. It is a chilling visual document of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony and evidence from the survivors, delivered to them often just days after escaping indiscriminate shelling, bombings and summary executions.

(2018, director: Max Blumenthal,
cinematographer: Dan Cohen)

August Movie - The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

NEW POST-ELECTION EDITION
Monday, August 13 @ 7pm
4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis

Follow gonzo investigative reporter Greg Palast (BBC, Rolling Stone) as he busts the New Klux Klan – the billionaire bandits who purged one million voters of color and stole the White House.

This real life detective story is told in a film noir style with cartoon animations, secret documents, hidden cameras, and a little help from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit detectives, Ice-T and Richard Belzer, Shailene Woodley, Rosario Dawson, Willie Nelson and Ed Asner. Palast and his associates expose the darkest plans of the uber-rich to steal America’s democracy.

Greg Palast is an investigative reporter for the BBC and the Guardian who busted Katherine Harris’ fake felon purge that stole the election for Bush in 2000. His work has been called “courageous reporting” (Michael Moore) that is funny, heartbreaking, and loaded with “facts like hand grenades” (John Pilger)
