Uncovered screening Dec. 3rd

December 2, 2003 12:21 PM

ICUJP (Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace) is hosting a screening of Uncovered at 7:30pm, Wednesday December 3rd. I will be there for a panel discussion after the film, assuming my flu plays nice by then. It's at the All Saints Church, 132 N. Euclid in Pasadena.

And yes, this will be the first time I've set foot in a church in quite a long time.

Also, this Sunday, December 7th, is the big MoveOn/Uncovered house party extravaganza. This evening will shatter every myth about how to distribute a movie. As of right now, there are just under 2,300 house parties organized all over the country. You can find one near you. It's a great opportunity to see the movie, meet other link minded people in your neighborhood, and be a part of history.

Paul in OC:

Robert Greenwald, producer and director of Uncovered, co-hosted a big Hollywood gathering (free subscription required) which presented America Coming Together and the Media Fund. Mr. Greenwald appears to be everywhere these days.

This is funny (and reminds me of the Dean campaign feeding off of negative press):

Calls and faxes attacking the gathering's sponsors — some of them anti-Semitic — came in from around the country from people who heard about it on conservative talk radio.

But in Los Angeles, the unexpected buzz caused the event to mushroom from 100 people to 230 — prompting the organizers to find a bigger room at the Beverly Hilton and to turn away many people who wanted to come, organizers said.

Among those expected to attend were Christine Lahti, Aaron Sorkin, Rob Reiner, Heather Thomas, producer Paula Weinstein, and "MASH" television star Mike Farrell.

Director Robert Greenwald, a co-host, joked that organizers would have to thank their detractors — "or put them on retainer."

Jim Gilliam:

This is the key quote:

Marge Tabankin, a Hollywood political consultant and one of the hosts of Tuesday's meeting, said Republicans "are looking at what the Democrats are doing and they're getting really nervous and they're trying to blow it up. What they're realizing is that this time around, there is likely to be a more level playing field, financially."

What did the Republicans think we were going to do? Lie down and roll over? They've taunted us since 9/11 with how popular their guy was, and how much money he was going to raise. It was hopeless, they were going to stomp to victory.

HA! Not so fast!

We got mad. We got organized. And now they're scared shitless.
