Days of Action - Movie Double Feature
Lucha Si! Fight for Public Education in Puerto Rico  co-directed by Jenifer Wager, Jinnette Morales and Poonam Srivastava  documents the heroic struggle of teachers and students in Puerto Rico as they fight capitalisms destruction of their education system in the wake of economic and climate crises. The 30-minute film, which features footage from the FederaciĆ³n de Maestr@s de Puerto Rico and its president Mercedes Martinez, is part of a series called Class Wars: Fight for Public Education.


Maestra - by Catherine Murphy tells the story of Cubas National Literacy Campaign. In 1961, over 250,000 Cuban volunteers taught more than 707,000 fellow Cubans to read and write. Almost half of these volunteer teachers were under 18. More than half were women. Narrated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker, MAESTRA (Spanish for teacher) explores the experiences of nine women who, as young girls, helped eradicate Cuban illiteracy within one year. Inter-weaving recent interviews, archival footage, and campaign photos, this lively 33-minute documentary includes one of the first Cubans of her generation to call herself a feminist and one of the first openly proud members of Cubas LGBT community.
