NPT is hosting two free screening events in the coming weeks. The first is Thursday, March 22, and features Dolores, part of our Indie Lens Pop-Up series. The documentary is about Dolores Huerta, feminist icon and activist for labor, Chicano and civil rights causes. This event takes place 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Watkins Theater. It is a free event, but RSVPs are required at dolores-npt.eventbrite.com. Seating will be first come, first served. Doors open at 6 p.m.
On Tuesday, April 3, we’ll host a free screening and discussion of The Rise and Fall of the Brown Buffalo, a documentary about the life of radical Chicano lawyer, author and counterculture icon, Oscar Zeta Acosta. Acosta was the inspiration for the Dr. Gonzo character in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, written by his friend, legendary journalist-provocateur Hunter S. Thompson.
Watkins adjunct professor of cinematographer and film Mark Schlicher, SOC; and Denise Rocha, associate director of Conexión America’s Migrant Education Program, will participate in a discussion following the documentary. The event is free, but RSVPs are required at buffalo-npt.eventbrite.com. Seating will be first come, first served.
