MAESTRA & GRENADA
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29 @ 2PM

MAESTRA & GRENADA - W/ Q&A
FRI, NOV. 29 @ 2PM  Chapel

MAESTRA
Thousands of teenage girls join the National Campaign for Literacy to help teach their country to read and write. Traveling to remote mountain regions, often against the will of their parents, they lived with their students for up to one year, teaching at night and on weekends. Over 700,000 illiterate adults learned to read & write that year. And the young teachers lives would never be the same. Directed by Catherine Murphy, 1961, 20 min.,  Havana/Cuba,  Documentary, Spanish with English subt. Shown with Grenada: Colonialism and Conflict.  Q&A After the screening.

GRENADA: COLONIALISM & EFFECT - NY PREMIERE
A chronicle of the philosophical and sometimes bloody struggles Grenadians have waged against colonialism and its long-lasting psychological influences. Grenadian leaders fought against colonialism in different ways. Julian Fedon freed 100 slaves to fight the British. Eric Gairy led the poor people in a massive strike and obtained many improvements for them. Maurice Bishop led a successful coup against Eric Gairy in 1979, promising education and societal reform. History tells the tale, however, that even as Grenadian leaders have struck blows at colonialism, they have at times employed the tools of oppression taught to them by their colonial masters. Directed by Valerie Scoon, 2012, 45 min.,  Grenada/USA, 2012,  English.  Shown with Maestra on Fri. Nov. 29 and with Catch a Fire on Sat, Dec. 7.
