SEASON TWO SELECTIONS

AFTER PARKLAND | Wednesday, February 12, 7:00pm
Directed by Emily Taguchi & Jake Lefferman,  USA, 2019, 92m.

In the days after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 that killed 17 people and launched a nationwide student movement, filmmakers Emily Taguchi and Jake Lefferman embedded with students and families whose lives were forever transformed. Weaving together candid, in-depth interviews, vérité footage, and personal videos, the film chronicles moments both intimate and defining – from the quiet hours of grief and reflection, to those of political awakening, and onto milestones on the public stage – creating a moving portrait of one community’s crusade to turn tragedy into progress.

WE ARE THE RADICAL MONARCHS | Sunday, February 16, 2:00pm
Directed by Linda Goldstein Knowlton,  USA, 2019, 95m.

Meet the Radical Monarchs, a group of young girls of color on the front lines of social justice, started by two fierce, queer women of color. Set in Oakland, CA, a city with a deep history of social-justice movements, the film documents the journey of the group as they earn badges for completing units such as being an LGBTQ ally, preserving the environment, and promoting disability justice. Filmed over three years, WE ARE THE RADICAL MONARCHS follows this mission-driven troop as they face the challenge of growing their organization, both before and after the 2016 election.
