Our final film of the season is coming up!

Fire in the Heartland: film-screening and discussion.

May 4th, 6-8pm, Bijou Art Cinemas, 492 E 13th Ave, Eugene, OR. $6-8.

Fire in the Heartland is a documentary film about a generation of young people, who stood up to speak their minds against social injustice in some of our nation’s most turbulent and transformative years, the 1960s through the 1970s. On May 4th, 1970, thirteen of these young Americans were shot down by the National Guard in an act of violence against unarmed students that has never been fully explained. Four, Jeffery Miller, Sandy Scheuer, Bill Shroeder and Allison Krause, were killed. Immediately afterward the largest student strikes and student protests in history swept across 3,000 campuses nationwide.

This is their story, and a story of all times when human beings are faced with injustice and are asked to choose—to stand by or to stand up, to stay silent or to raise a voice, to stay safe or to put themselves at risk, sometimes at very great risk. This is a story that resonates as much today as it did in the 1960s and 1970s.

20 minute audience discussion following film. $6-8. Pre-ordering tickets suggested (http://18791.formovietickets.com:2235/T.ASP?WCI=BT&Page=PickTickets&SHOWID=11320).
