07/12/2018 Albatross Film & DIY Opportunities 

Thursday, July 12, 6:00 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

Join our Plastic-free July Event for an evening of connecting to nature and hands-on ways to lessen our impact!
Albatross explores the beauty and tragedy in the cycles of birth, life, and death of creatures that live in the middle of the ocean on Midway Island, thousands of miles away from the nearest continent. Director Chris Jordan describes the motivations of the Midway Project as a drive to convey the intensely vivid sensual, emotional, and spiritual experience of being with [the birds] on the island. The intimacy of the birds nurturing, poetic and cyclical lives is starkly contrasted by the shocking images portraying the devastation of the effects of an unhealthy ocean.
Refreshments & DIY Opportunities: Come between 6-7 pm and learn how to make simple products you use every day to eliminate plastics in your life. Bring an earth-friendly, package-free snack to share if you like! (Parents are advised that this film is not recommended for young children)

07/19/2018 LaborFest 2018
and The FilmWorks United International
Working Class Film & Video Festival
proudly presents the film
Pride (2014)


Celebrate with your community an extraordinary story and an equally extraordinary film, Pride, Thursday, July 19, 7pm at 518 Valencia in San Francisco. Admission is free.

Pride is based on a true story. The film depicts a group of lesbians and gay who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) campaign. The alliance was unlike any seen before and was ultimately successful.

The story is set in the context former Prime Minister Thatcher decision to force the National Union of Miners out on strike in 1984 - 1985 in an effort to break the miners union. The Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) was an alliance of lesbians and gay men who formed throughout the United Kingdom in support of the striking British miners during the yearlong UK miners' strike.

Despite initial and difficult efforts to break through the socially conservative miners communities, the LGSM and the miners finally joined together in a common struggle for justice and human rights. By the end of the strike, there were eleven chapters throughout the UK, and the miners ended up leading Londons Lesbian and Gay Pride parade in 1985. This powerful story, through comedy and real history, tells us how we can build working class unity.

LaborFest is the premier labor cultural arts and film festival in the United States. Most of these events are free or ask for a voluntary donation. The festival is self-funded with contributions from unions and other organizations that support and celebrate the contributions of working people.
