Free Screen: Osama and Walkout

A small group of us gathered tonight to launch Next To Nowhere's Free Screen evenings, where two full length films of interest to radical types will shown for free (or donation) every fortnight.

The first film was Osama - an unflinching account of life under the Taliban, which was all the more devastating by the almost total lack of resistance to their reign of terror, and the realisation that despite all the American promises, the situation hasn't exactly improved.

Then it was onto Walkout, which told the much more uplifting tale of a Chicano student rebellion against racist school authorities in the late sixties.

It's been an amazing week at Liverpool's new social centre, which has the makings of being a great activist space. A virtual round of applause to everyone involved!
