Two films presented by the Montreal Anarchist People of Colour crew ...
--> AFRO-PUNK: The Rock and Roll Nigger Experience followed by ...
--> THE FORGOTTEN SUMMER: Race Riots in 1919 (with director Julian Berrian)
SUNDAY, May 9 -- 6:30pm at Cafe la Petite Gaule 2515 rue Centre (metro Charlevoix)
Free! (donations appreciated) Welcome to all.
AFRO-PUNK: the "rock n roll nigger" experience, a 66-minute documentary,
explores race identity within the punk scene. More than your everyday,
Behind the Music or typical "black history month" documentary this film
tackles the hard questions, such as issues of loneliness, exile,
inter-racial dating and black power. The film follows the lives of four
people who have dedicated themselves to the punk rock lifestyle. They
find themselves in situations that could only happen to some one who had
to experience the duality of a person of color in a mostly white
community.

The style of the documentary inter-cuts interviews from scores of black
punk rockers from all over the United States with scenes from our four
protagonists' lives. They come from different regions, generations,
genders, and sexual preferences but their stories are the same. The "rock
n roll nigger" experience is the same.

Afro-Punk features performances by Bad Brains, Tamar Kali, Cipher, and Ten
Grand. It also contains exclusive interviews by members of Fishbone, 247-
spyz, D.H. Peligro of Dead Kennedy's, Carley of Candiria, and Chaka Malik
of Orange 9mm fame to name a few. For more info: http://www.afropunk.com

THE FORGOTTEN SUMMER chronicles the African American struggle for equality
and self-preservation during the ultra-violent summer of 1919.The Red
Summer, as it was touted by former NAACP secretary, James Weldon Johnson,
gave way to over 24 deadly race riots on U.S. soil, but has since been
buried in the annals of "selectively forgotten" American history. Julian
Berrian's "The Forgotten Summer" works toward publicizing a chapter of the
African American experience which had much to bear on the United States'
racial divide.

Julian Berrian will be present at the screening to answer questions.


Presented by the Anarchist People of Colour (APOC) crew in Montreal. To
