KBOO @ The Clinton
KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music.
A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.
We'll also collaborate on bringing you special events throughout the year like the annual celebrations for Zappa, Lennon, Miles Davis, and more.
CAN YOU DIG THIS? One of the greatest films on the power of BIPOC urban farming! Fundraiser for KBOO Community Radio and Emerson Street Garden. #kboo #willbennet
This documentary follows the inspirational journeys of four unlikely gardeners, discovering what happens when they put their hands in the soil. This is not a story of science and economics. This is a story of the human spirit, inspiring people everywhere to pick up their shovels and “plant some shit.”
Doors open at 6:30pm.
South Los Angeles. What comes to mind is gangs, drugs, liquor stores, abandoned buildings and vacant lots. The last thing that you would expect to find is a beautiful garden sprouting up through the concrete, coloring the urban landscape. As part of an urban gardening movement taking root in South LA, people are planting to transform their neighborhoods and are changing their own lives in the process. Calling for people to put down their guns and pick up their shovels, these “gangster gardeners” are creating an oasis in the middle of one of the most notoriously dangerous places in America.
"Miraculous...A standout. Feras Fayyad’s powerful portrait audaciously puts women’s imperative contribution to survival front and center."TOMRIS LAFFLY, VARIETY
"Emotionally Moving...extraordinary visual grace...both intensely real and a carefully wrought work of cinema."CARYN JAMES, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"Look no further than The Cave for a portrait of true heroism. Provides astonishingly immediate and gripping footage of the collective effort to survive. The Cave ranks among the best of films to portray the tragedy of the Civil War in Syria and the resilience of the everyday people who keep the spirit of the nation alive."PAT MULLEN, POV
"Gripping. Unprecedented. A real-time thriller...Fayyas excels at finding small moments that take on poetic resonance."ERIC KOHN, INDIEWIRE
"Gripping. It will stick with you long after you leave the theater. It is as moving as it is possible for a film to be."ANDY HOWELL, FILM THREAT
Oscar nominee Feras Fayyad (“Last Men in Aleppo”) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war with his powerful new documentary, The Cave. For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.
