Film: It's All Lies!

It's All Lies!
A documentary about Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall
Followed by a discussion with Palestinian refugees

This fascinating and action-packed documentary looks at a growing and
controversial movement in Israel, the Anarchists Against the Wall. Voicing
their uncompromising support for Palestinian resistance against Israeli
apartheid, the Anarchists Against the Wall are fighting the empire
directly within the belly of the beast.

"It's all Lies" looks at anarchist direct actions against the separation
barrier in Palestine. In one of these actions in December, 2003, a young
Israeli activist was shot in the legs with live ammunition. The footage
captured calls into question the real role of the Israeli "Defense" Forces
when they start shooting at one of their own.

Organized by the Palestinian refugee coalition

OPENING EVENT OF THE 6TH MONTREAL ANARCHIST BOOKFAIR

LOVE and POLITICS
By Living Theater

Love and Politics is a collection of poems and dramatic texts by Judith
Malina, Hanon Reznikov and Julian Beck read by Living Theatre directors
Judith Malina and Hanon Reznikov. The materials include selections from
Poems of a Wandering Jewess by Judith Malina, scenes from Living Theatre
plays Utopia, The Zero Method and Capital Changes by Hanon Reznikov, from
Judith Malina's translation of Brecht's Antigone and excerpts from The
Life of the Theatre and Theandric by Julian Beck.

Love and Politics offers a poetic approach to two of the themes which have
been at the center of The Living Theatre's work since the company's
founding in 1947 - the interaction of the political process and the force
of love. The work of Malina, Reznikov and Beck is fo-cussed on humanity's
millennial dream of uniting these aspects of life in a cosmically inspired
fusion that transcends the quotidian contradictions that have fostered the
alienation that separates most people from the realization of their
highest potential.
