April 2012: Breaking the Fences

April 1st 2012 7-10PM East Oxford Community Centre £3 suggested donation.

Short films on freedom of movement, migration controls, and resistance.
A fundraiser to support action against deportation.

Doors open at 7pm and we’ll start by showing an array of 3-minute interviews with people involved in the “Arab Spring” uprisings and
movements – a preview of a future screening on the subject.

Our main feature (7:30pm-9:30pm, incl. interval) is an inspiring and
action-packed selection of short films focusing on the border regimes of
Fortress Europe and the movements challenging them.

We’ll end with an opportunity for open discussion, and wrap up around 10pm.

Proceeds from the night will be split between:
*****
Oxford Action Resource Centre:

*****
and Stop Deportation Network:
http://stopdeportations.wordpress.com

August 2011: In search of the hackers

Please note change of date to SUNDAY 7TH AUGUST due to clash with Cowley Road Carnival after party at the community centre. There will consequently be no showing in July.

Who are these people that call themselves hackers? Those that believe that technology exists to be appropriated and subverted for whatever purpose? Those who oppose corporate control over inventions? If you part with good money for something, is it not yours to do what you will with it? Not according to the likes of Microsoft, Apple, Sony and their ilk…
For August’s screening we’ll be showing two films from Germany and from Spain: ‘Hippies from Hell‘ and ‘Looking for Hackers‘ (En busca de hackers) and inviting debate on discussion about whether the technology can make us free, if we know how and why to take advantage of it…..
