Thursday, October 23: Global Uprisings with filmmakers Brandon Jourdan and Marianne Maeckelbergh in person
Global Uprisings is an independent news site and video series dedicated to showing responses to the economic crisis from around the world. Brandon Jourdan and Marianne Maeckelbergh have been travelling, researching, and making short films about responses to the economic crisis and current uprisings. Their short films and articles detail social movements in Spain, Greece, the UK, the US, and Egypt. These films and articles cover the strikes, street mobilizations and occupations in the UK, large-scale housing occupations and demonstrations in Spain, various general strikes, and self-reduction campaigns in Greece, the revolution in Egypt, the Gezi Park uprisings in Turkey, the 2014 social explosion in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the revolt against austerity in Portugal, and occupy movements within the United States. Throughout the project, they have also collaborated with collectives and media makers such as the Mosireen collective, Grit TV, Deep Dish TV, Big Noise Films, Democracy Now, and David Martinez. Brandon and Marianne will present a selection of their films as well as a new piece about the Taksim Square uprising in Turkey. They will be premiering a new film One Man Regime about political struggles in Turkey.
