Subaltern-ate Media: Brave New Films’ ‘trickle up theory’ of Mass-roots Communications

Friday, October 16, 2009
The Weiss Center, Rubendall Recital Hall, 11:30 a.m.

The Clarke Forum and the Literature/Film Association are sponsoring a presentation by Myra Donnelley of Brave New Films. Brave New Films is perhaps best known for “Walmart,” which played on campus a couple of years ago; they have also produced “Sick for Profit” and “Move On: the Movie.” Their most recent film, “Rethink Afghanistan,” just opened in New York.

Brave New Films has pioneered video activism in all manner of venues on the internet as well as in movie theaters. As The Nation reports, the organization “has created a quick-strike capability that challenges corporate media with the truth and empowers political action nationwide.”
