FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 7 PM, STAVROS NIARCHOS FOUNDATION PARKWAY THEATRE – NO MAN’S LAND
No Man’s Land gives a detailed, on-the-ground account of the 2016 standoff between protestors occupying Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and federal authorities. What began as a protest to condemn the sentencing of two ranchers quickly morphed into a catchall for those eager to register their militant antipathy toward the federal government. During the 41-day siege, director David Byars was granted remarkable access to the inner workings of the insurrection as the protestors went about the daily business of engaging in an armed occupation. No Man’s Land documents the occupation from inception to its dramatic demise and tells the story of those on the inside of this movement – the ideologues, the disenfranchised, and the dangerously quixotic, attempting to uncover what draws Americans to the edge of revolution. Director David Byars will join us and host a Q&A after the film.
SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 6:30 PM, BALTIMORE SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS – DOCUMENTARY SHORTS PROGRAM
