Resistance Isnt Futile: Films on the Occasion of a Presidential Inauguration
Sunday, January 22, 2017, 7:30pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
Resistance Isnt Futile: Films on the Occasion of a Presidential Inauguration
At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Resistance takes many forms, riotous and quiet, political and economic, through education and through engagement.  In our program this week, we look at some forms of resistance  by people and groups and filmmakers, by seeing some of the ways that films have found dynamic ways and unheralded people to face dark times and make better futures.  Well also take a look at a few of the issues of the day, to remember the troubles of the past that people have resisted, and how some of them have never left us.  Featuring films by Straub-Huillet, Kelly Gallagher, Kevin Jerome Everson, Penelope Spheeris, Robert Fenz, Danny Lyon, and more.  Curated by Adam Hyman
