Hello folks. As far as I can presently determine, the ONLY movie theater in Kansas City, Missouri currently offering ‘Fruitvale Station’ is the independently owned Tivoli Cinemas. Hats off to Tivoli’s  Jerry Harrington for bringing the film to Kansas City, Missouri. There’s a reason why this non-chain theatre continues to exist amidst all the big box chains and this is one of them–it brings things to us that we’d never otherwise get to see until they’re in little red envelopes.

 

Without further ado by moi:

If anyone knows of another movie theater featuring ‘Fruitvale Station’ at this time in Kansas City, Missouri, please share where and leave a link in a comment.  There may be one because it is not designated as an “exclusive” on Tivoli Cinema’s website as is “A Highjacking”.  Thank you.

Fruitvale Station Opens July 12, 2013 — Sundance Winner Grand Jury Prize Dramatic Feature.

Fruitvale Station will be shown NO-where near where I reside.  If you see the film please share your thoughts by leaving a comment. Thanks.  I did view a show about the making of the movie. It looks damn good. This is an important film  for all the very serious issues it raises about living and dying in America based on ‘who’ you are on so many levels.  Folks, we’ve got some major problems even if you’re not seeing them in your neck of the quickly vanishing woods.

Fruitvale Station  is the story of Oscar Grant who was shot dead by BART police on New Year’s Day 2009.

“Reel Injun” kicks off Native American Heritage Month

It’s November and that means “official” Native American Heritage Month in the US of A.   Folks it’s time to get down with the genocidal history of the United States of America. Before the Japanese were sent to camps for being Japanese in America, the Indigenous people were forced onto reservations which I consider prisons without walls. Genocide in America is ongoing to the present for Traditional Indigenous people who have endured the theft of their land and children and destruction of their culture for several hundred years. Columbus Day does not engender warm fuzzy memories for everyone now living in the Americas north, south and in between.

To kick off my observance of Native American Heritage month here are two trailers and clip from a new film, “Reel Injun” by Cree filmmaker  Neil Diamond.  Read more at http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2011/11/native-american-film-festival-highlights-history/

We all love movies, don’t we? Think about how films have formed your view of Native Americans and history. Consider how those often called “the losers” view the same events–and the portrayal in films.  For those of you who adore the movie “Dances With Wolves” ask yourself why you like the film?   And please think about why “the Only Good Indian” never got on the national movie theatre circuit in the United States of America. Yes, you can find it in parts on the tube of you.  Time to get beyond stereotypes and into reality.

Show time…..

Why does the film industry in the USA fear this film?

Oh yeah, truth makes people very, very uncomfortable. Wouldn’t want to do that, now would we?
