Harvest of Empire movie

The WAMM Movie Committee will be showing “Harvest of Empire” on Monday, November 11 from 7 to 9 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

A powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the cover operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration.

(2012, 1 hr 30 min, Directed by Peter Getzels and Eduardo Lopez, USA)

Pepperwolf will lead the after-film discussion.

Undeterred movie

Undeterred  is a documentary about community resistance in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Since NAFTA, 9/11 and now during the Obama and Trump administrations, border residents have been on the front-lines of the humanitarian crisis caused by increased border enforcement build-up. Undeterred  is an intimate and unique portrait of how residents in a small rural community, caught in the cross-hairs of global geo-political forces, have mobilized to demand their rights and to provide aid to injured, often to dying people funneled across a wilderness desert. The film was made by Eva Lewis, a resident of Arivaca and long time member of People Helping People in the Border Zone (PHP). Undeterred was created in close collaboration with the Arivaca community and members of PHP.

(2019, 1 hr 16 min, Directed by Eva Lewis, USA)

Emma Goldman movie

The WAMM Movie Committee will be showing “Emma Goldman” on Monday, October 14 from 7 to 9 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

To the tabloids, she was “Red Emma, queen of the anarchists,” but Goldman was admired for her defense of labor rights, women's emancipation, birth control, and free speech. Goldman (1869―1940) was a life-long anarchist, feminist, activist, speaker and writer. For nearly half a century, Russian emigrant Emma Goldman was the most controversial woman in America, taunting the main-stream with her fervent attacks on government, big business, and war.

(2004, 1 hr, Directed by Mel Bucklin, USA)

Sarah Martin will lead the after-film discussion.
