El Pueblo Se Levanta Ayer & Hoy (The People Are Rising Then & Now) Film Screening & Talk

When: Jun 4, 2022 5:30-8:30 pm


(en español debajo) Third World Newsreel (TWN) and Pioneer Works are pleased to co-present a screening of El Pueblo Se Levanta (The People Are Rising), an iconic film released in 1971 which captures the compassion and militancy of the Young Lords Party—a group that implemented health, educational and public assistance programs in response to the racial discrimination, deficient community services, poor education and job opportunities for Puerto Ricans in the United States. El Pueblo Se Levanta will be followed by the screening of Coyolxauhqui and Have You Seen? (both 2017), two short films by Colectivo Los Ingrávidos. Founded in 2011 in Tehuacán, Colectivo Los Ingrávido—which translates to ‘invisible’—is a political media collective that claims a floating, even spectral presence, embracing the malleability and transportability of the moving image to confront the violence and corruption of contemporary Mexico. The program will conclude with a discussion centered on activism-focused films both past and present, and the various forms of visual and social media now used in collective organizing. Featured speakers will include El Pueblo Se Levanta filmmakers Iris Morales and Bev Grant; TWN member Allan Siegel; and a member of Colectivo Los Ingrávidos. The conversation will be moderated by Teresa Basilio Gaztambide, and Nitasha Dhillon and Amin Husain from MTL Collective, a collaborative that joins research, aesthetics, organizing and action in practice, will join via Zoom. Third World Newsreel (TWN) y Pioneer Works se complacen en presentar la proyección de El Pueblo Se Levanta (The People Are Rising), una película icónica estrenada en 1971 que captura la compasión y la militancia del Partido Young Lords, un grupo que implementó programas de salud, educación y asistencia pública en respuesta a la discriminación racial, servicios comunitarios deficientes, educación de mala calidad y pocas oportunidades laborales para los puertorriqueños en Estados Unidos. También presentaremos Coyolxauhqui y ¿Has visto? (ambos de 2017), dos cortometrajes del Colectivo Los Ingrávidos. Fundado en 2011 en Tehuacán, México, Los Ingrávidos son un colectivo de cine político que reclama una presencia flotante, incluso espectral, que adopta la maleabilidad y transportabilidad de la imagen en movimiento para enfrentar la violencia y corrupción del México contemporáneo. El programa terminará con una discusión sobre películas de activismo, tanto del pasado como del presente, y de las modalidades de medios audiovisuales y redes sociales que ahora se utilizan en la lucha colectiva. Los panelistas incluirán a Iris Morales, ex-miembro del Partido Young Lord; Bev Grant, una de las cineastas de El Pueblo Se Levanta; Allan Siegel, uno de los fundadores del colectivo Newsreel y ex-miembro de Third World Newsreel; y Nitasha Dhillon y Amin Husain del colectivo MTL, duo que combina en su práctica la investigación, la estética y el activismo. El evento será moderado por Teresa Basilio Gaztambide y un miembro del Colectivo Los Ingrávidos dirá presente por Zoom.
