Southside Manifesto 6-10 pm "I probably have half a million social concerns that bother me, an steam me up to no end. were talking a troubled world in need of life support or at least thinkers for positive change, to open up a forum for a better neighborhood, a better world. so I printed up some flyers, passed them out to libraries an meeting places across the city asking artists to participate in a group show of art of social an political concerns an to do so in a visual context. I was interested in getting a pulse from the streets. the show is a grouping of established artists, the young and new, the great and not so great. but all have a message from the personal to the universal to ponder and inspire. I hope the viewer will learn an gain some insight an lead one on a journey for positive change and a better world."

Midwest Premier: Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland
April 25 • 8pm • After Critical Mass Ride • $5 Please join us for the midwest premier of Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland. Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland is the story of where Portland's culture and infrastructure came from and how to build your own! Enjoy an evening of "Left Coast vs. Middle Coast" like a rap battle. Panel discussion/Q&A following the screening will feature local folks with connections to Critical Mass and bike advocacy in the urban environment. About the Film: The world looks to Portland, Oregon as an example of how bicycle culture can blossom out of the ruinous freeways of car-oriented civilization. Aftermass is the first feature documentary to explore the events, people, politics, and social changes that led to Portland becoming the first major bicycle city in the United States. Aftermass features many of the leaders and major participants behind the growth of bicycling ridership since 1971. The narrative demonstrates the complex dynamic throughout the 1990s between advocacy organizations, politicians, city planners, and the then new, grassroots Critical Mass ride. The film is full of smiling faces on two wheels, but also explores the controversies, setbacks, and bumps along the way, including riots, political roadblocks, and an illegal police spy.
