FILM: Targeted Village, May 21

TTVflyer_final

MOVIES
MAY 21
TARGETED VILLAGE

a film by
Chie Mikami

a message from
Asia Pacific Islanders Peoples Solidarity (APIPS)
a grassroots coalition in New York City

On Thursday, May 21, we will be holding a public event to screen
“Targeted Village,”
a documentary
about the village of Takae in Okinawa,
where the Japanese government plans to surround the village
with heliports for Ospreys flown by the US air force.

We will also hold a discussion with
someone who was involved in the production of the film,
and we hope the event will generate discussion on
strategies for advocacy to stop US base expansions in Okinawa.

THEATER: Emmett, Down in My Heart

20a24327-d484-4498-b045-60af974103f6

THEATER
until May 17

We wanted to share this special play with everyone. Here is the description:

Emmett, Down in My Heart takes the audience on a haunting journey into the landscape of race and violence in America. Historical text, music, and immersive staging interweave to tell the story of the horrific murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955 Mississippi. Till’s brutal lynching, the acquittal of his killers, and his mother’s insistence on an open casket exposed hidden truths of the Jim Crow South and stunned the world, striking a chord in the national conscience.

Thanks for Brooke McGowen for creating this amazing work – and for carrying it in the march from Union Square to the UN on Sunday, April 26.

Such a wonderful and positive response to the macabre potentials of nuclear weapons and power.
