Cinema Politica: Granny Power

Category: movies 1,222

grannyOn Friday, April 1st at 7pm at Conserver House, 180 St. John St., Fredericton, Cinema Politica Fredericton will screen “Granny Power” (Magnus Isaacson, 2014, 90min.)

This is a documentary about a very original activist movement – the Raging Grannies. Spanning 10 years, the film follows several passionate, activist grandmothers and their “gaggles” as they fight for peace, social justice and the environment. This is an important, growing and radically under-represented segment of the population. As citizens become more passionate about expressing political dissatisfaction with the status quo, the Raging Grannies are proving to be an inspiration and a a symbol of proud civic engagement for audiences of all ages. The Grannies’ commitment to the issues and their sense of humour are always much in evidence. The film is ‘serious fun.’

Following the films, join us for an optional discussion Fredericton’s own amazing Raging Grannies.

 

This is the final film of the official 2015-2016 season. Join us in fall 2016 for our next season! To stay in contact or for more information on Cinema Politica Fredericton, like us on Facebook or contact: fredericton@cinemapolitica.org.
