Disappointed you couldn't make movie night last week? You're in luck - we postponed movie night due to Hurricane Dennis (yes, we know in retrospect that wasn't necessary, but we'd rather full attention be focused on the films and not approaching storms). Movie night will be this coming Saturday, July 16th - same time, same place. We hope to see you there!

Join Get Your Act On for the first
'Double Feature Progressive Movie Night Picture Show'

Saturday, July 16th, 6pm
at Sugar Park Tavern
800 France Street
New Orleans, LA

Schedule:

7PM - 'DOORS' OPEN: Come early and grab some of Sugar Park's great eats (their NY style pizza is superb) before the movies and mingle with fellow progressives.

8PM: Screening of HIJACKING CATASTROPHE: 9/11, FEAR & SELLING OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE

9PM - 10PM: INTERMISSION

10PM: Screening of ANIMAL FARM

Due to the content of the films and the location, we ask that you do not bring children to this event.

Sugar Park is handicap friendly - there are a few small stairs, but there will be plenty of people around to help if the need arises.

MOVIE DESCRIPTIONS:

HIJACKING CATASTROPHE: Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire examines how a radical fringe of the Republican Party used the trauma of the 9/11 terror attacks to advance a pre-existing agenda to radically transform American foreign policy while rolling back civil liberties and social programs at home. The documentary places the Bush administration s false justifications for war in Iraq within the larger context of a two-decade struggle by neoconservatives to dramatically increase military spending in the wake of the cold war, and to expand American power globally by means of military force. At the same time, the documentary argues that the Bush administration has sold this radical and controversial plan for aggressive American military intervention by deliberately manipulating intelligence, political imagery, and the fears of the American people after 9/11.

Narrated by Julian Bond, Hijacking Catastrophe features interviews with more than twenty prominent political observers, including Pentagon whistleblower Lt. Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski, who witnessed first-hand how the Bush administration set up a sophisticated propaganda operation to link the anxieties generated by 9/11 to a pre-existing foreign policy agenda that included a preemptive war on Iraq.

At its core, the film places the deceptions of the Bush administration within the larger frame of questions seldom posed in the mainstream: What, exactly, is the agenda that drove the administration's pre-war deceptions? How is 9/11 being used to sell this agenda? And what are the stakes for America, Americans, and the world if this agenda succeeds in being fully implemented during a second Bush term?

ANIMAL FARM: A satire of Stalinist Russia, Animal Farm tells of the revolt of the animals of Manor Farm against their human masters. Led by the pigs Snowball (Lenin) and Napoleon (Stalin), the animals attempt to create a utopian society. Soon, however, Napoleon gets a taste for power, drives out Snowball, and establishes a totalitarian regime as brutal and corrupt as any human society. Manor Farm becomes a world where all animals are equal--but some are more equal than others.

91 minute animated film

THE GROUND TRUTH: THE HUMAN COST OF WAR: Military slogans and ideals encourage thousands to join our military, and millions more to give unconditional public support when soldiers go to war. Through intimate and candid interviews with returning soldiers of all ranks, veterans, military families, and independent footage and photographs not seen on the news, The Ground Truth looks at the long-term and often invisible effects this war is having on thousands and thousands of nameless, undecorated Americans.

30 minute documentary in progress, produced and directed by Patricia Foulkrod.
