NYC Film Screening

  • Interference Archive 314 7th Street Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

Join us in Brooklyn, NY at the Interference Archive on Thursday, May 9th from 7pm-9pm for a screening of EMPIRE STATE RUMBLINGS and a report back on the NYS National Emergency Freedom School Bus Tour!

The first film to document the launch of the New York State Poor People’s Campaign, EMPIRE STATE RUMBLINGS tells the story of a new type of organizing seen through the eyes of four incredible women who participated in the intensity of the campaign’s beginnings. Filmed by a team of activist videographers over 40 Days of Action in the spring of 2018, as week after week, poor people from around the state gathered in Albany to confront their government and make their voices heard, EMPIRE STATE RUMBLINGS is produced by award-winning filmmaker Peter Kinoy with an original score by Brooklyn based musician/composer Dan Loomis. (30 min; free admission)

Following the film, local organizers, artists and educators from the NYC Poor People’s Campaign will join us to report back on the recent National Emergency Freedom School Bus Tour, and their journey through the state to shine a light on the REAL national emergencies facing our communities today.
