Cinematic Disobedience is back! This summer, we are focusing on questions
of personal health, lifestyle, and ecological impact, which are, at least
partially, within the realm of our control. What better way to begin than
to survey the contents of our plates, 1970s-style? We'll learn about the
mysterious origins of all-American foods: peanut butter, hamburgers, and
mustard, with the help of Woody Allen and a funky soundtrack, and keep up
with latest food industry technologies of 1975. Food safety and quality are
as much a concern today as they were 40 years ago - but at least Food
Sticks™ are no longer around.

Thematic snacks provided & more snacks are welcome! All films presented on
16mm unless noted. Big thanks to Liz Coffey at the Harvard Film Archive and
Paul Shannon at the American Friends Service Committee for assistance with
this screening.

About Cinematic Disobedience:

Cinematic Disobedience is a loosely-structured, no-budget film & potluck
series with a focus on social issues that are relevant to the Boston
community. It was started in the spring of 2012 as a response to the
questions raised by the occupation of Dewey Square. The series travels to
venues in various Boston neighborhoods and presents off-the-beaten-path
programs, such as locally-made documentaries, 1970s' ephemeral films, book
readings, PowerPoint performances, and more. It is programmed by Brittany
Gravely (HFA), Nellie Kluz (LEF Foundation), Mariya Nikiforova (Balagan),
and Ricardo De Lima (Spectacle). cinematicdisobedience.com
