The festival kicks off Friday, March 1st, with a screening of Occupy Love a film by Velcrow Ripper, at the AGO’s Jackman Hall, providing a thought-provoking take on the Occupy movement and the possibility of embracing love as an ideology and a global movement. Ripper and Eisenstein will be on hand for a post-screening discussion of this award-winning film and the issues it raises.
The evening will begin at 7:00 p.m. with an intimate concert featuring a must-hear trio comprising of singer/pianist Robert Graham, singer/songwriter Glen Alan, and veteran guitarist/producer Chris Birkett, who has worked with Memphis greats like Rufus Thomas and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of famers like Led Zeppelin and Randy Newman. The trio will perform the Leonard Cohen standards Democracy and First We Take Manhattan along with their own original material in a special music program that explores the themes expressed both in Ripper’s film and that of Eisenstein’s refreshing de-growth philosophy.
