I want to invite you (and anyone you think I forgot!) to a private-ish screening of my film Tender Comrades this Tuesday at one of my favorite spots in the city: The Sunview Luncheonette! We will gather in our cozy social club space (complete with booths and spinny counter stools!) for an intimate screening of this short (23 min) film starring Laryssa Husiak, Chris Giarmo, Yours Truly, and a significant eruption in NYC public discourse:
Shot partially at Occupy Wall Street, the film uses real-life events, fake interviews, and lo-fi re-enactments to illuminate a few anecdotes in the history of anarchism and subversive movements in the Americas. Following the screening the soup of opinion will be served with the ladle of love. Also, actual soup/stew to fill your bellies.
Tuesday November 19th
The Sunview Luncheonette
Please RSVP. It will help with stew-prep.
