On January 15, 2002, we showed
Strong Roots, a film about the Landless
Workers' Movement (MST) in Brazil. To take questions after the movie, we
had Jennifer Lemire & Maria Aguiar of Grassroots International, a
Boston-based non-profit organization that works with the MST.
In late April, we published an MST bibliography,
prepared for us by Tito Bianchi (MIT).
On May 3, MST activist Wanusa Pereira
dos Santos joined us to talk about the organization's social, political, and
economic strategies, and how it promotes fair trade and responsible
stewardship of the natural environment. She also discussed the tactics used
by those who oppose reform.
On January 6, 2003, we showed
Four Days in September, Bruno Barreto's film
about the kidnapping of the US Ambassador in Rio de Janeiro in 1969.
