TGI Friday for a DIY film and gig night

Plenty of diy anarchistic events coming up this Friday 9 July, and on over the weekend.

Cafe and Film – MAGGOTS & MEN – from 7pm at The Factory
kronstadt-film_smallerThe Bookfair collective and the awesome Fin @ Bath present the challenging film ‘Maggots & Men’ (2009, 54 mins, USA), described as:
“An experimental historical narrative set in post-revolutionary Russia, re-tells the story of the 1921 uprising of the Kronstadt sailors with a subtext of gender anarchy. A thoughtful homage to Soviet silent era directors and artists of the Russian avant-garde, the film explores themes of re-invention, revolution, community, and corruption.”

Check out the film website for interesting info on the making of the film and some history. There’s also a review of the film from the 2010 BFI lesbian & gay film festival.

It kicks off at the wonderful Factory with a cafe at 7pm. The address is Cave Street, Bristol BS2 8RU

After the film why not nip onto your bike and catch….

A diy fundraiser at The White Hart in Easton
9-july-benefitThis is a benefit for Bristol & south Wales Hunt Sabs and Bristol ABC. Doors around 7.30pm, bands from around 8.30pm to midnight. Its a fiver in on the door, and no doubt there’ll be some stalls from the two causes, and maybe more.
Expect some loud punk, crust and thrash from the likes of Kismet H.C / Death Job / Mutiny Plot / This Ends here.
The White Hart is at 181 Whitehall Rd, Easton, Bristol BS5 9BJ
When your brain cells stop bouncing why not get involved with the 2 groups represented?

Once you’ve recovered on Saturday, cruise along to Eastville Park from 3 to 7pm for a mini-folk festie, BBQ and even cider. The music is free and it comes from the excellent Kebele Sound. Details here.

Then round off your weekend at the Sunday Kebele vegan cafe from 6.30pm. After dinner there’s an evening of film and discussion about direct actions on the railways against climate chaos and nuclear power hosted by Bristol and Bath Rising Tide. More info here.

Anarchy. DIY. Easy innit !
