“Enjoy Poverty” (2008) – Dutch artist Renzo Martens travels with his camera through the poorest and most violent areas of the Congolese interior. In these regions, where poverty is the highest export product, Martens start an emancipation program in which he encourages local communities to monetize their poverty. This fails horribly.
ELCPAS is a new regular film screening group that sets out to display, reveal and critique mainstream forms of entertainment as Capitalistic propaganda rather than just escapism. We understand that we are probably wasting a night of Common House’s calendar on a stupid film night when some serious critiquing and activisting or brick throwing could be happening, but we also think the left should be, and can be a little bit more fun.
Donations for Common House are very appreciated. Booze is encouraged. 420 friendly yeah bro. https://www.facebook.com/events/166119630254665/
