Buy Tickets for The After Party & Difficult Love!

The After Party
Directed by Michael Schiller
65 mins, Documentary, USA

7:00 pm Screening, Hendricks Hall (Double Feature with Difficult Love)

During the course of the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City, over 1800 people were arrested, including a documentary film crew filming a protest at Ground Zero. The crew’s tape became instrumental evidence in Schiller v. City of New York, a landmark first amendment case, filed by crew member Michael Schiller, that uncovered a warrantless police spying operation. The After Party takes a hard look at the precariously thin line between security and freedom and examines the resurgence of domestic surveillance in America.


Buy Tickets for Difficult Love & The After Party!

Difficult Love
Directed by Peter Goldsmid & Zanele Muholi
48 mins, Documentary, South Africa

7:00 pm Screening, Hendricks Hall (Double Feature with The After Party)

How real are the freedoms of newly won democracy for Black, South African lesbians and gays? This film offers a moving answer and a compelling plea for understanding and tolerance. Illustrated by internationally celebrated photographer Zanele Muhole's images and a diverse range of interviews, Difficult Love offers a poignant personal journey that counters head-on the charge that being lesbian or gay is “un-African” or un-Christian. It reveals a world that is often hidden or suppressed.

This feature is preceded by the short, Poem Without U or I.


Buy Tickets for A.L.F.!

Directed by Jérôme Lescure
96 mins, Narrative, France

9:00 pm Screening, Hendricks Hall

Bonded by empathy toward mistreated animals, a diverse group of ordinary people face the dilemma that when something has gone beyond the bounds of reason, you must forget about what is legal and care about what seems right. Acting under the guise of the Animal Liberation Front, the group must show courage as they set out to free a number of dogs condemned to being sold to laboratories as vivisection subjects.

This feature is preceded by the short The Littlest Ones: A Dogumentary.
