Monday Movie Night: GoDDsville Takeover!

Published Kayla Coleman - Tue, 10/11/2016 - 3:57pm

The Gainesville chapter of the Dream Defenders (GoDDsville) will be taking over our Monday Movie Night for a screening of Ava DuVernay's brand new documenatry "13th."

"Named after the constitutional amendment abolishing slavery, “The 13th” threads together archival footage with modern-day commentary, and focuses on the ramifications of the amendment and its clause: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.”

“A certain part of our population has been demonized for the benefit of private industry and politicians, and a lot of forces that have nothing to do with, quote, ‘keeping people safe,’” Ms. DuVernay said in a phone interview. “Once you know why we’re here and how we got here, we’re on more solid footing to walk ourselves out of this deep valley that we found ourselves in. That’s the hope.”..." - New York Times

Following the screening there will be refreshments and discussion.

Movie run time is 100 minutes.
