The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution by Stanley Nelson

February 17, 2016 7:00pm
KiMo Theatre - 423 Central Avenue NW, Albuquerque
A new revolutionary culture emerged in the turbulent 1960s, and the Black Panther Party was at the vanguard. Weaving together a treasure trove of rare footage with the voices of a diverse group of people who were there, Stanley Nelson tells the vibrant story of a pivotal movement that feels timely all over again.
Gene Grant will moderate an interactive discussion after the film with student and community activist, Fernando Malik Barrios Bradford, Dr. Jamal Martin, Director of Peace and Justice Studies, UNM Department of Africana Studies and Dr. Sonia Gipson Rankin, Lecturer on Race and the Law and Associate Dean of the University College at UNM.

Peace Officer by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber

April 6, 2016 7:00pm
KiMo Theatre - 423 Central Avenue NW, Albuquerque
The increasingly tense relationship between law enforcement and the public is seen through the eyes of someone who's been on both sides: a former sheriff who established Utah's first SWAT team, only to see the same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Now a private investigator, Dub seeks the truth in this case and other officer-involved shootings.
Sarah Gustavus will moderate an interactive discussion after the film. Guests: TBD.

Registration Coming Soon!
