The Seattle Chapter of the NLG is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the Social Justice Film Festival. On October 10-13, the Social Justice Film Festival will screen 60 films and documentaries in Seattle exploring social justice subjects around the world, with a special focus on prisoner justice. See http://socialjusticefilmfestival.org/home
We are especially pleased to host the U.S. premiere of Tula The Revolt, a new film with Danny Glover. The film is about a historical slave uprising in Curacao in 1795, during a time of rising consciousness and revolt against slavery in North and Central America and the Caribbean. Mr. Glover will join us for the premiere, followed by a Q&A with the director. Mr. Glover will also speak about prisoner rights and our current justice system. The premiere takes place October 13, 4 p.m., at the Cinerama Theater in downtown Seattle. The link to the trailer is http://www.tulathemovie.com/movies/trailer/
