The bad news is that Patrisse Cullors can't make it to Martha's Vineyard on July 30. Her activist duties beckon--this time for her work with JusticeLA. We've invited her to attend our 19th Annual MVFF and will keep you posted.
The good news is that we've scrambled to find another great film for Monday night and are thrilled to announce that we have booked MOMENTUM GENERATION. This is so much more than a surf film--it is a universal tale of friendship.
Below is the original listing for RESIST with Patrisse Cullors.

After corrupt L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca is ousted, Patrisse Cullors and a group of community organizers work to shut down a new jail the county is trying to build. This docuseries takes us behind the scenes of their powerful grassroots activism in action, examining the issues of cash bail, unlawful arrest, over-policing of black and brown neighborhoods, and mass incarceration. As the community and student activists band together to attack legislation targeting each concern, families and loved ones fight for the freedom of the imprisoned.
