What better way to recover from the glorious return of the Cowley Road Carnival this Sunday than to flop into the comfy chairs at OARC to watch Guerilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst, a documentary about millionairess Patty Hearst‘s kidnapping by the American leftist Symbionese Liberation Army, her subsequent joining of the group and involvement in bank robbery.  The classic example of Stockholm Syndrome, this is an enjoyable and informative look at what happened.

As usual, we’ll be showing some short films from citizen journalists around the world from groups such as Indymedia, Reel News and Democracy Now from 7pm.  Main film starts at 7.30pm, discussion of topics raised in the film afterwards and a strict 10pm finish, adjourning to The Star in Rectory Road for a refreshing beverage and further discussions afterwards.

Note also that there’s a Carnival event on at East Oxford Community Centre (where OARC is located) featuring lots of dub and other great sounds and carribbean food on sale.  We may have a little bit of difficulty with the door before the film, but one of the Sunday Screenings crew will be on hand to smooth your entry.  So if you have problems, just wait for someone or ring the OARC bell.
