The Arusha Centre’s Action Film Series brings challenging films and performances to Calgary and links them to the individuals and groups working here in our city. They take place on the 3rd Wed. of every month.
This month, come early to take in the Activist Super Hero Fashion Show, starting at 6PM! If you have an idea for an activist super-hero costume, submit it by Sep. 14th to the Arusha Centre (and plan to be in the fashion show) & you could win $500!
Mexico City is not Gotham City but if you were to run into any of these five masked activists who protect this metropolis, you'd wonder if you were not living inside a comic book. These modern-day super-heroes are a group of Lucha Libre wrestlers who have taken their fight out of the ring and into the street of the Mexican capital.
Super Barrio, Super Gay, Super Ecologista, Super Animal and Fray Tormenta are real life masked super heroes who fight evil slumlords, corrupt politicians, homophobia, pollution, animal rights abusers, and poverty. Though their true identity remains a mystery, they could easily be Mexico City's most popular figures and last salvation.
Super Amigos is a feature-length documentary that follows 5 modern-day super heroes in Mexico City as they fight for social justice and human rights.
