Film Screening + Potluck (dumplings)
Friday, October 28 @ 7pm
55 Walker Street, New York
The sixth in a series of film screenings, dinners and discussions happening every Friday evening through December 17th at Decolonize This Place.
This week Colloquium for Popular Culture and MTL + present Flag Wars, a film that explores gentrification. In the decaying, historically black Olde Towne East area of Columbus, Ohio, residents perceive themselves as being forced out of their homes by affluent gay couples trying to create a neighborhood for themselves. This documentary focuses on Linda Mitchell, a longtime resident who finds herself in danger of losing her house when she cannot afford to maintain her desirable property. With tensions rising, the gay gentrifiers soon find themselves the targets of violence and robbery.
NOTE -- The next day at #DecolonizeThisPlace at 7pm is the following related event: Artists: NYC Is Not 4 Sale (see FB invite: http://bit.ly/2e8fMoc). Come on Friday and Saturday.
