MOVIES @ MoRUS presents “Long Distance Distance Revoluntionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal”
The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) will bring cinema to the
people every third Thursday of the month with MOVIES @ MoRUS, a series
of films highlighting such themes as social justice, political reform,
environmental activism and Lower East Side history. Each screening will
be followed by a talk back and discussion.
The first of the MOVIES @ MoRUS series will be held on February,
18th. In observance of Black History Month, the first film screened
will be Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal directed
by Stephen Vittoria. The film is an in-depth examination of the case
of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a journalist on death-row whose conviction in the
case of the 1981 murder of a policeman in Philadelphia continues to
raise questions about the death penalty, the judicial system, and race
MOVIES @ Morus is free to the public but a suggested donation of
$5.00 is always appreciated. Showtime is 7:00 PM at MoRUS, 155 Avenue C
between 9th and 10th Streets.
