Cinema Politica at ConU

by Archives October 8, 2003

For filmgoers put off by the standard fare being shoveled out by the likes of Hollywood, the Cinema Politica series currently running at Concordia University’s Hall Building is the perfect antidote.

Covering everything from globalization and American foreign policy to Nazi philosophy and squeegee punks, the films offered by Cinema Politica (subtitled: Art, Politics, Change) seek to enlighten and challenge their viewers.

“I’m interested in the relationship between art and politics, and how that relationship can be explored and used as a platform to educate and elucidate the public, including students, on different important issues that a lot of these films deal with,” explains series organizer Ezra Winton.

The first Cinema Politica series was put together while Winton was studying in British Columbia.
