May 14

Social Inc, in collaboration with the Library, is hosting Friday Film Recommendations.

All Mohawk College students have free access to this film through the library catalogue.

This week, there are two film recommendations:

"Stonewall Uprising"

"Stonewall Uprising explores the dramatic events that launched a worldwide civil rights movement. When police raided a Mafia-run gay bar in Greenwich Village, the Stonewall Inn, on June 28, 1969, gay men and women did something they had not done before—they fought back. As the streets of New York erupted into violent protests and street demonstrations, the collective anger announced that the gay rights movement had arrived."

Watch “Stonewall Uprising” here.

AND

“In the Shadow of Gold Mountain”

"Filmmaker Karen Cho travels from Montreal to Vancouver to uncover stories from the last survivors of the Chinese Head Tax and Exclusion Act, a set of laws imposed to single out the Chinese as unwanted immigrants to Canada from 1885 to 1947. Through a combination of history, poetry and raw emotion, this documentary sheds light on an era that shaped the identity of generations."

Watch “In the Shadow of Gold Mountain” here.
