[OPIRG-EVENTS] Movie on Freedom Fighters: Wed. Sept 20 @ ByTowne

Coming this Wednesday to the ByTowne Cinema September 20th, 7 pm:

 "Flame" - "Šperhaps the most controversial film ever made in  Africa...".

Flame tells the story of two close friends whose involvement in the
liberation war leads to very different outcomes. Its depiction of ongoing
divisions within Zimbabwean society, and its suggestion that many of those
who fought hardest for freedom - for instance, women and peasants - have
been neglected in the post-revolutionary period may have contributed to
Flame's controversial reception.

Flame is a bold, powerful, and deeply moving portrayal of the courage and
complexity of Zimbabwean women freedom fighters.  It depicts the real-life
relationships among those engaged in national liberation struggles and of
the challenge of sustaining those relationships in times of peace.  This is
a very impressive work." - Angela Davis

Tickets: $7 at the door, ByTowne Cinema on Rideau.

All proceeds go to World Inter-Action Mondiale (WIAM), a local non-profit
global education group that seeks to build awareness of the links between
