America and Me

Event screening, followed by a Q&A with director David Bradbury and guests musician Margaret Roadknight (who will be performing a song) and social rights activist lawyer Rob Stary. Friday March 16 - Tickets on sale below.

AMERICA & ME documents the observations of director David Bradbury (the Oscar-nominated Front Line and Chile: Hasta Cuando?) over three months in the US during the lead up to the shock election of Donald Trump. A one-man band and always traveling with his camera, David Bradbury was easily able to slip into gear and start filming while on tour promoting his previous film, the antimilitarism documentary War on Trial.

Bradbury interviews veterans of America’s failed wars to maintain Empire, gets down in the gutter with the homeless to find out what life is like on the streets, speaks to a nun who was violated by the military junta in Guatemala under the directions of a CIA operative, goes to the US/Mexican border where Trump plans to build the Wall, visits the rust belt of middle America where factories are closed and people are hurting, and ends up at the Standing Rock protest camp for Election Day.
