Film Screening: Two Short Films from Unicorn Riot￼
Unicorn Riot is a decentralized non-profit media organization of journalists that seeks to engage and amplify stories of social and environmental struggles from the ground up. We present two examples of their work: Beyond the Barricades: A Look at George Floyd Square (10minutes), an on-site reportage of the intense community engagement that occurred on the four-block area in South Minneapolis on and around the site of George Floyd’s murder; and Seizing the Means of Production: A Spotlight on Vio.Me(12minutes), an inside look at an environmentally-friendly cleaning products factory in Greece that the workers seized when it went bankrupt and have successfully operated for six years. There will be a short introduction by Niko Georgiades from Unicorn Riot and a little bit of time for Q+A after the screenings.
