On January 20, 2017, D*nald J. Tr*ump will solemnly swear to execute the office of President of the United States. Come swear solemnly in response, the night before! Cathartic as well as a call to action, this screening of short films will address the future political landscape in ways both playful and incisive. ERC’s program affirms creativity as a vital and necessary response in the face of lies, corporate greed, bigotry and willful ignorance.
Our agenda is to promote expression that resists, exposes, protects, and champions justice, truth and equality. From this work and the community we create by showing it, we draw strength, power and clarity of purpose.
