May 20 - Divided We Fall (video) (3rdMon) “Nonviolent mass insurgencies are rare, spontaneous, and unpredictable creatures. The trick is, how to make the most of one when it emerges? The 2011 Wisconsin Uprising was one such beautiful creature, a largely organic movement that united tens of thousands of people in a weeks-long public protest.” Writer/director Katherine Acosta, Twelfth House Films.
