Twin Cities Arab Film Festival

  • St. Anthony Main Theatre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Mizna proudly presents the 12th Twin Cities Arab Film Festival, September 27 to October 1—a chance to see thoughtfully curated films from Arab and Arab American filmmakers. Established in 2003, the Arab Film Fest has featured local debuts of independent narrative and documentary features and short films from more than fifteen countries. Over its twelve editions, our festival has created a necessary space in the Twin Cities for Arab and Muslim filmmakers to tell their stories in beautiful and innovative ways. This year, our project feels more urgent than ever, as our programming serves a response to national and international policies that target the lives of immigrants and refugees, while also tackling the global threat of xenophobia and Islamophobia. The festival launches on Wednesday, September 27 at the Walker Art Center with the screening of Tramontane by Lebanese filmmaker Vatche Boulghourjian, followed by a multimedia performance celebrating the release of local Syrian musician Hello Psychaleppo’s new bird-themed album Toyour at the Walker Art Center's Garden Terrace. Screenings continue at the The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul's Screen 3 at St. Anthony Main Theatre. Co-presented with The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul and the Walker Art Center.

Snap, Crackle, and Stop: A benefit for Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers Peace Essay Scholarship

In 2016, three veterans, a storyteller, a musician and visual artist, did a show at Patrick's Cabaret, using great art like Caravaggio's JUDITH AND HOLOFERNES, to explore the questions: IS IT EVER RIGHT O KILL TO STOP EVIL? 

On October 1st, THE SEQUEL, Gerald Ganann, Steve Gates, and Larry Johnson, will look artistically at nonviolent force to stop injustice. Each will use storytelling, music, and art. The audience decides which is the real storyteller, or musician, or artist. 

The evening includes Armistice Bell Ringing by Veterans for Peace, as well as cameo appearance by Steve McKeown, explaining why KELLOGG BOULEVARD has absolutely no connection to cereal that talks. 

Contact larryjvfp@gmail.com to RSVP. 

Come early for Happy Hour specials from 3-6pm!

 

Larry Johnson will be featured on Don Olson's show on KFAI 90.3 FM at 1pm on August 31st! Don't miss it!

WAMM Second Monday Movie - "First Daughter and the Black Snake"

  • 4200 Cedar Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In honor of Indigenous People's Day - WAMM will be watching, "First Daughter and the Black Snake." 

Winona LaDuke believes Big Oil is the black snake predicted in indigenous prophecy to bring the earth's destruction. When new oil pipelines threaten sacred wild rice lakes, Winona dreams of riding her horse against the current of oil, organizing a spiritual ride, "because the horse can kill a snake."

 

The "Prophecy of the 7th Fire" says a "black snake" will bring destruction to the earth. We will have a choice of two paths. One is scorched and one is green. For Winona LaDuke (Ojibwe for "first daughter"), the "black snake" is oil trains and pipelines. When she learns that Canadian-owned Enbridge plans to route a new pipeline through land granted to her tribe in an 1855 Treaty, she and her community spring into action to save the sacred wild rice lakes and preserve their traditional way of life. Winona is a daughter, mother, grandmother and Executive Director of Honor the Earth, a native-led environmental justice organization. Directed, Produced and Director of Photography Keri Pickett.

Every Church a Peace Church September Potluck- Marie Braun on "Banning Nuclear Weapons: Now is the Time!"

Marie Braun is a long time peace and justice activist and has been a member of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) for 35 years. Following a trip to Iraq in 1998, she became involved in grassroots organizing against the sanctions on that country and later against the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria and in protesting many other U.S. threats of war. She is a member of the WAMM End War Committee, which is spearheading the WAMM Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons.

Marie's presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion on what faith communities can do to support the recent Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and rid the world of the threat they pose to the environment, to future generations and to the very survival of humanity.

Middle East Peace Now Presents: Dr. Michael Andregg "Peace in the Middle East: Some Nuclear and Demographic Dimensions"

With a PhD. in genetics and several years as a researcher in that field, Dr. Michael Andregg decided that war was a larger public health hazard than the rare diseases he was studying and turned his attention to studies in peace and justice. As a professor at the University of St. Thomas, he has followed this path for the past 25 years.

Through the non-profit Ground Zero Minnesota he led production of 57 educational videos on this subject and sponsored about 5000 programs for young scholars in the upper Midwest. He has published numerous articles and his book, "On the Causes of War," which won a national peace writing award in 1999.

Dr. Andregg believes the "gorilla in the room" of Middle East peace is WMD, including nuclear, and there is one nuclear nation in the Middle East: Israel. That gorilla has an equally ominous twin: millions of teenage males maturing into desperate circumstances.

Dr. Andregg's self-defined mission at all times is "education for informed democracy and human survival."

WAMM Second Monday Movie - "Howard Zinn: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train"

In these troubled times, Howard Zinn is insipiring a new generation. This acclaimed film looks at the amazing life of the renowned historian, activist and author. Following his early days as a shipyard labor organizer and bombardier in World War II, Zinn became an academic rebel and leader of civil disobedience in a time of institutionalized racism and war. His influential writings shine light on and bring voice to factory workers, immigrant laborers, African Americans, Native Americans and the working poor. 

Featuring rare archival materials and interviews with Zinn and colleagues such as Noam Chomsky, You Can't Be Neutral  captures the essence of this extraordinary man who has been a catalyst for progressive change for more than 60 years. 

Narrated by Matt Damon. Featuring music by Pearl Jam, Woody Guthrie and Billy Bragg!

QUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.

Second Monday Movie - "National Bird"

National Bird follows the dramatic journey of three whistleblowers determined to break the silence around the secret U.S. drone war, which has been waged globally for more than a decade. The use of drones has transformed modern warfare, but drone missions are highly classified, and there are no official counts of military or civilian casualties. The film gave rare insight into the program through the eyes of veterans and survivors, examining the complexities of drone warfare from a human perspective and exploring the difficult circumstance faced by military personnel involved with combat drones. While it may be true that drone operators do not sustain battlefield injuries, their psychological wounds may be substantial, often leading to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Connecting the dots. Lively discussion follows. 

Always free and open to the public. 

ALL are welcome! Free popcorn!

35th Anniversary Party @ Surly Brewing!

35th Anniversary Party @ Surly Brewing!

Women Against Military Madness is turning 35 years old this year! Usually people are not so excited to celebrate getting older but in this case we are THRILLED! WAMM is only here because of you!

WAMM has been a pillar of peace and justice throughout our community. As we come to celebrate our successes, we remember where we started. In 1982, a group of like-minded women gathered to discuss the impending threat of nuclear warfare. These women decided to do something about it. On that cold January day, they said, “Never a meeting without an action.” In that moment, the first WAMM action occurred, a protest against nuclear weapons. Today, we continue with vigor and passion to make peace and justice a national priority.

Now, more than ever, there is a need to keep the pressure on to ban nuclear weapons, to bring an end to additional spending for war, and to ensure that the culture of militarism is stopped in its tracks. WAMM wants to continue to empower women to make change in our community and beyond, as we have done for so many years.

Our theme is “WAMM 35 years, Then and Now!”  This will be a celebration of our community and organization at Surly Brewing Company on Monday, July 31st starting at 6:00pm. We will have raffle prizes, peace and justice trivia and light hors d’oeuvres. If you are craving more food, you will be able to order from the Surly Brewery Bar menu and their wonderfully well-crafted beers will be available at the cash bar. All ages are welcome to join us!
