Marx in Soho by Howard Zinn, dir. Angela Kay Pirko
The time is now. The place is here. Karl Marx is back from the dead. And he’s got some things to say. The critically acclaimed production is back. The Marx Sisters invite you into the mind of one of the most brilliant and controversial philosophers of all time. Famous historian and activist Howard Zinn has written a politically charged and brilliantly heartfelt piece that is both timeless and timely in its message: change comes from us. The revolution has been resurrected. #MarxLives on Monday, July 15, at 8:00 pm.
Kino-Q: The AIDS Trilogy, Pt. I - Silence = Death (1989)
In the first part of The AIDS Trilogy, a statement by Texas’ Governor, caught on an open microphone, summarizes filmmaker Rosa von Praunheim’s perspective on America’s attitude towards the millions of HIV-positive Americans: “If you want to stop AIDS … then shoot the queers.” Silence = Death brings together a multitude of short portraits that impress with their radicalness and openness. On Thursday, July 18, at 6:30 pm.
Kino-Q: The AIDS Trilogy, Pt. II - Positive (1990)
Positive – HIV-positive, to be precise – describes most of the New Yorkers, whom Rosa von Praunheim interviewed in this documentary about how they managed life with AIDS. But positive also refers to a mental outlook that does not surrender to one’s own dismay. Throughout The AIDS Trilogy, the interviewees are portrayed as members of a resistance movement that rebels against the supposed fatality of the illness from which they suffer.
