Film Screenings

"War/Peace" Documentary Screening

​Time: 1.00pm, May 13, 2017

​Place: Public Library of Turku, Studio Room

​War/Peace documentary (2017) film is re-introducing radical student activists from the late 60s. Ex-leaders of The Weather Underground movement Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are controversial characters in the US based on public opinion. The film will serve as a historical reminder of activism and asks a question; how can change be possible if peaceful demonstration is not effective and violence only brings more violence?

​We're inviting you to see the film and hear Ayers and Dohrn talk about their activism in the 70s and how it comapers to the current activisim in the US. The audience will have an opportunity to ask filmmakers and Ayers and Dohrn questions.

​The event is hosted by the JMC and IIPC (International Institute for Popular Culture). The event is free and open to all.
