The Black Panthers, Vanguard of the Revolution – 7:00 pm

In the 1960s when a new revolutionary culture was emerging, those seeking to radically transform the system believed change was imminent. The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense would, for a short time, put itself at the vanguard of that change. Whether they were right or wrong, good or bad, more than 40 years after its founding in Oakland, the group and its leadership remain enduring figures in our popular imagination. This new feature documentary includes eyewitness accounts from the first members who joined the organization, rank-and-file members, and the voices of lawyers, journalists, scholars, police officers, and former FBI agents. Directed by Stanley Nelson. Sonya Childress of Firelight Media will introduce the film.  (113 minutes)

For All The Marbles tells the story of how, faced with the most urgent issue of our generation, climate change, a Salt Lake City carpenter decides to run for Congress in the 2014 election. We follow Bill Barron on his very unique campaign trail, as he rides his bike 600 miles across the state of Utah to raise awareness and get out the vote! (Bill was inspired by Bioneers to embark on this quest.) (13 minutes)
