KBOO @ the Clinton presents BEHEMOTH

kboo radio tower

 

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.

BEHEMOTH: The dehumanising impact of coal mining is laid bare in a Chinese documentary whose stunning images speak louder than words. 

Critic’s Pick! "A feat in pictorial storytelling- it’s haunting power grows in retrospect- as if you’ve returned from a journey and can’t believe what you’ve seen...” -New York Times

“Colossal in scope...Behemoth seems to shudder with the destructive power of invisible, ubiquitous, and cruelly indifferent authority.” - New Yorker

Film with Afterward Discussion on Clean Energy Alternatives and Jobs. If you see only ONE FILM on climate change and the need to curb carbon consumption, this is it.

Suggested $7-10, no one turned away for lack of funds! Post-film discussion with experts and audience on Clean Energy Alternatives and Jobs, and how you can get involved.

Under the sun, the heavenly beauty of grasslands will soon be covered by the raging dust of mines. Facing the ashes and noises caused by heavy mining , the herdsmen have no choice but to leave as the meadow areas dwindle. In the moonlight, iron mines are brightly lit throughout the night. Workers who operate the drilling machines must stay awake. The fight is tortuous, against the machine and against themselves. Meanwhile, coal miners are busy filling trucks with coals. Wearing a coal-dust mask, they become ghostlike creatures. An endless line of trucks will transport all the coals and iron ores to the iron works. There traps another crowd of souls, being baked in hell. In the hospital, time hangs heavy on miners' hands. After decades of breathing coal dust, death is just around the corner. They are living the reality of purgatory, but there will be no paradise.
