Marighella: screening followed by director Q&A

December 7, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Currently censored in Brazil, Marighella is a new Brazilian action drama set in 1969 based on the life of Afro-Brazilian politician and guerrilla fighter Carlos Marighella. Facing a violent military dictatorship and with little support from a timid opposition, writer-turned-politician Carlos Marighella organizes a resistance movement. Alongside revolutionaries 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opts for action. The film is adapted from the biography Marighella – O Guerrilheiro que Incendiou o Mundo, by Mário Magalhães.

The screening will take place on Saturday, December 7th at 6PM at the Teacher’s College Chapel (525 W. 120th Street).

General admission is $15, members of LAIC and ILAS get in for free.
