Subject: July 7 NYC premiere of great new doc
film about last year's coup in Honduras
Dear friends and colleagues,
I wanted to invite you to the U.S. premiere of a
powerful new documentary film about last year's
coup in Honduras, and the courageous resistance
movement that's risen up to challenge it. I've
been helping to organize the screening here in
New York and hope you can make it -- next
Wednesday July 7 (details below, please share far
and wide, it's free!). I had the chance to meet
the filmmakers last month in Argentina, where
they were living in exile and finishing their
film (more on their story here), and director
Katia Lara will be in New York next week for a
the one-day screening, before accompanying the
film in DC, Philadelphia and the Bay Area. The
NYC screening is co-sponsored by the Center for
Constitutional Rights, CISPES, NACLA, Madres and the Indypendent.
Hope to see you there!
p.s. Here's a piece I just did for The Guardian
on the one-year anniversary of the coup, based on
my interviews with Honduran anti-coup activists.

"...a much needed truth telling intervention
where mainstream media has failed."
Greg Grandin, award-winning author Empires
Workshop: Latin America, the United States, and the Rise of the New Imperialism
A widely-anticipated, feature-length documentary
film about the 2009 military coup d'etat in
Honduras and the incredible resistance movement
that has risen up to challenge it.
René is a Honduran amateur actor who appeared on
television spots promoting the referendum on
convening the National Constituent Assembly in
Honduras. On June 28th, 2009, instead of a
referendum, there was a brutal coup détat: the
army abducted President Manuel Zelaya and had him
flown abroad. Along with thousands of other
Hondurans, René joined the National Resistance
Front against the Coup d État. An unprecedented
Honduras arises: a people who resist despite
media bias, violence and death, and take to the
streets to stand up for their rights. This is their story.
Sponsored by the Center for Constitutional
Rights, MADRE, CISPES, NACLA and the Indypendent.
Film by terco Producciones and el INCAA
