More Info on the Film and the Other Campaign:

* The Host

“The Host is a loopy, feverishly imaginative genre hybrid about the demons that haunt us from without and within.” -Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Come enjoy “one of the 100 Best Films of World Cinema” (Empire Magazine) before the sequel comes out next year and Hollywood puts out its own shitty remake!

* The Other Campaign

Initiated five years ago by the Zapatista Army of National Liberation, the Other Campaign is a transnational movement to liberate Mexico “from below and to the left” with adherents ranging from the Zapatista communities of Chiapas all the way up to the immigrant families of Movement for Justice in El Barrio, and beyond.

This is a fundraiser to support the National Encuentro of the Other Campaign being co-convened by Movement for Justice in El Barrio and the People’s Front in Defense of the Land who will be hosting the gathering in their community of Atenco, just outside of Mexico City, on November 13 and 14.
