Times Square Screenings

I screened excerpts from We Are Also Responsible: Cesar Chavez 1971/2008 and The Liberation of Our People: Angela Davis 1969/2008 from The Port Huron Project on MTV's oversized HD screen in Times Square as a part of Creative Time's "At 44 1/2" project. The videos showed once every hour on the hour, Monday through Friday, from August 26th to September 31st, 2008. More information from Creative Time on the screenings and "At 44 1/2."

 

“The Port Huron Project is a kind of digital samizdat, a technological twist on the distribution of political leaflets that is as American as Tom Paine and as revolutionary as farmers and small-business men toppling the combined power of George III and the East India Co.”

- Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times, July 25, 2008
