For an evening, on April 11, 2011, hundreds of people joined in a thrilling taste of revolutionary possibility at Harlem Stage in NYC. BAsics from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian - the handbook for revolution in the twenty-first century - had just been published. To mark the occasion, musicians, dancers, poets, actors, visual artists, came together with revolutionaries and activists from the 1960s down to today for a cultural event titled: “On the Occasion of the Publication of BAsics: A Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World.”
This film is the story of this night - the reflections of the artists and participants: what inspired them, their hopes and dreams. From Avakian’s roots in the ‘60’s - his work with the Black Panther Party, to the inspiration of the revolution in China, to struggle for the liberation of women - the film tells of and makes you feel the still present need for a world free of all the oppressive relations the haunt the world today. This film gives a living sense of revolutionary joy and possibility - a different way humanity could be.
The film includes performances and interviews with Matthew Shipp & William Parker, David Murray, reg e. gaines, Maluca Mala, Abiodun Oyewole, Outernational, Maggie Brown, Guillermo E. Brown, Moist Paula Henderson, Aladdin & Avirodh Sharma, and others. Interviews, new and archival film features Bob Avakian, Dr. Cornel West, Richard Brown, Annie Day, & Carl Dix.
Director: Annie Day and Andy Zee

Helmed by award-winning director Storm Saulter, an urban love story unfolds against a backdrop of political turmoil in Jamaica. Ricky, a young man from an inner city community, fights against all the odds to escape the prevailing hardships of life in the ghettos of downtown central Kingston. After months of incarceration as a suspected political agitator, Ricky is released. At his surprise homecoming party, he meets Kemala, a book-smart country girl who lives in the opposing neighborhood – that is, enemy territory. In many ways Kemala and Ricky are opposites; but, fate throws them together and what started with antagonism quickly transforms into burning passion. Kemala encourages Ricky to convince his old friends in the community to adopt a more passive approach. Can Ricky and his crew defy the status quo of confrontation, which leads to the inevitable cycle of violence? Can Ricky beat the odds and ensure that better mus’ come?
