Film showing and fundraiser: The Old Man and Jesus

Movie Screening and Fundraiser! September 17th


El Viejo y Jesus or The Old Man and Jesus:


A documentary by the film collective Calle y Media chronicling the lives of two men living on the streets of Caracas in the middle of a right-wing offensive trying to reverse the gains of the revolutionary process in Venezuela. The lyrical wisdom of the Old Man and the explosive word of Jesús, demonstrate the liberatory commitment of the people of Venezuela, beyond the influence of leaders or any enlightened vanguard.This film is the documented prophecy of a rebellion that minute by minute silently plots from under the bridges and the sewers a world that will sooner or later rise up thirsting for justice.


As well as the premiere of a short documentary filmed by B media during the 2009 PCASC Venezuela delegation about street musicians reclaiming space for their art to be seen and heard.


All funds raised will go towards radio and video equipment to be used donated to community media outlets by Jaclyn Brown, the latest in a long line of PCASC members to travel to Venezuela! Location: Rio's Space. 4810 NE Garfield. Date: Sept 17th Time: Meet and greet: 6pm. Movie: 7pm. $5-$10 donation. No one turned away for lack of funds. Food and drinks will be available!
