Anarchist Black Cross film screening

by tomorrowboy ()

On Sunday, June 19th, at 7:00 pm the Anarchist Black Cross will be showing Punishment Park.

Written and directed by Peter Watkins (1971). An intense psuedo-documentary about a group of arrested radicals and members of the counter culture given a choice between serving out their sentences in Prison or participating in a race through the desert pursued by National Guard Soldiers and the Police. "Both controversial and relentless in its depiction of suppression and brutality." Totally worth checking out. The event is by donation and any money raised will go toward supporting political prisoners.
