Activist and filmmaker Astra Taylor spans millennia and continents: from capitalisms roots in medieval Italy to modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis; to racism and class warfare in the United States. Featuring Cornel West, Angela Davis, Silvia Federici, Aja Monet, and many more, this urgent film connects the past and the present, the emotional and the intellectual, the personal and the political, in order to provoke and inspire.

Join us for a post-screening discussion facilitated by artist and healer Amina Desselle featuring Norris Henderson and Checo Yancy of VOTE.
