PSA: Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking documentary “El Contrato” (The Contract), directed by Min Sook Lee. This film follows the story of Teodoro and other migrant workers who come from Mexico to work in tomato greenhouses in Leamington, Ontario. We’ll also hear the story of Shavan, a father of three from Jamaica who’s been coming to Nova Scotia as a migrant farm worker for 8 years (through a pre-recorded interview). This will be followed by Q & A discussion.
A bit of good news to end the week. The Radical Imagination speaker and film series is back on in the Halifax Central Library, where it belongs.
Larry Haiven: I have a modest proposal, which I think is almost directly analogous to the decision of Halifax Regional Libraries to deny a free venue to the Radical Imagination Project to show films critical of the police without ‘the other side.’
Alex Khasnabish writes about being told that the Radical Imagination Film and Discussion Series at the Central Branch Library in Halifax must include a representative of the Halifax Police Department as a featured speaker.
