Looking for a great way to spend Friday nights? Meet us online via Innis Town Hall to catch a movie!
Free Friday Films are a tradition here at the University of Toronto. Our Cinema Studies Student Union has been putting together awesome bills for over two decades!
Free Friday Films on September 25 will offer feature documentary, LA 92 (2017) and music video, Pressure (2020). There will be a Q&A with the director of Pressure, Alicia K Harris after the screening.
Twenty-five years after the verdict in the Rodney King trial sparked several days of protests, violence and looting in Los Angeles, LA 92 (2017) immerses viewers in that tumultuous period through stunning and rarely seen archival footage.
"My intention for Koffee’s Pressure music video was to make the viewer see our ABSENCE. We are - simultaneously - hyper visible (and then targeted), but also invisible, in that there is rarely justice for our deaths. The colour red is also used to symbolize this dichotomy, externalizing both LOVE and ANGER. To contrast the isolation and emptiness of the other scenes, protest footage of people flooding the streets to fight for justice, shows we are not alone in this fight. We can be hopeful, because change is upon us." - Alicia K Harris
