"MONEY TALKS," 16mm short film program + Chris Faraone + potluck
Friday, March 30th, 2012
SCATV, 90 Union Square, Somerville

Potluck at 7pm - bring a dish!
Program starts at 8pm.

Cinematic Disobedience and Zampano's Playhouse present the second film
program inspired by Occupy --

-- an eclectic mix of short vintage films on the American pursuit of the
almighty dollar. From grim depression-era cartoons like the Fleischer
Bros.' "Greedy Humpty Dumpty" (1936) to howlingly optimistic 1970s'
training films like "Work - Coping with the 20-Hour Week," tonight's movies
gain plenty of added resonance on the backdrop of the Occupy Movement. Any
One-Percenters in the audience will particularly enjoy tonight's
inspirational noir drama "Crossroads USA" (1952) in which a disaffected
young gas station attendant learns to Dream Big when a prosperous oil man
passes through his station. (Brought to us by OIL INDUSTRY INFORMATION
COMMITTEE.) Nine short films in 90 minutes!

AND --

Chris Faraone, JP-based journalist who camped at many occupations around
the country, will open the evening with a presentation of his book, 99
Nights with the 99 Percent.
