screening for IWD

Saturday, March 12 · 6:00pm - 9:00pm 

Pustaka Semesta Infoshop invite you all to come and celebrate the International Women's Day at the Infoshop. Come and bring some snacks and let's have a good times while watching two films that focus on women's struggle.

1-Emma Goldman (docu.)
This PBS documentary is about the life and struggle of the famous anarchist Emma Goldman. Born in Kovno in the Russian Empire (present-day Kaunas, Lithuania), Goldman emigrated to the US in ...1885 and lived in New York City, where she joined the burgeoning anarchist movement. Attracted to anarchism after the Haymarket affair, Goldman became a writer and a renowned lecturer on anarchist philosophy, women's rights, and social issues, attracting crowds of thousands. She and anarchist writer Alexander Berkman, her lover and lifelong friend, planned to assassinate Henry Clay Frick as an act of propaganda of the deed. Although Frick survived the attempt on his life, Berkman was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison. Goldman was imprisoned several times in the years that followed, for "inciting to riot" and illegally distributing information about birth control. In 1906, Goldman founded the anarchist journal Mother Earth.

2-Foxfire (1996 film)
Foxfire is a 1996 film based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang. The film follows the coming of age of four high school girls who meet up with a mysterious and beautiful drifter.

Prior to this we had two screenings and missed to post them here. But in case you ever wonder those were:
this one actually entitled "miami model"
