Deep Dish and Paper Tiger bring you a evening of Nick Macdonald’s shorts including:

Acts of Revolution
We will discuss the role of anarchist cinema, and meet the filmmaker, Nick Macdonald, for a Q&A.
An independent filmmaker in the 1970s, working on shoestring budgets, Nick Macdonald is known for The Liberal War (1974), which was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (NYC) for its Study Collection in 1976. Another film, Break Out!, premiered in 1971 at the original Film Forum on West 88th Street in New York City. Rather than using traditional documentary footage, Macdonald’s political films are more personal, shot largely in his apartment to create metaphors, through collage and guerrilla skits, for the historical narrative of his voice-over narration.
