MESYM hosts a documentary event each second Friday of the month @ Plaza Sentral. Everyone is invited to come watch the documentary, participate in the discussion, and meet like-minded people. Admission is free!

For our April event the crossover topic is Trump (again). We are screening Trumped: Inside The Greatest Political Upset Of All Time, an intimate behind the scenes look into the biggest political upset in recent US history. Mark Halperin, John Heilemann and Mark McKinnon follow the rise of Donald Trump from the primaries through the debates to the drama of election night, featuring a trove of never-before-seen footage secured during the making of the SHOWTIME documentary series ‘The Circus.’

Attend the event on our Facebook Group.

About ‘Trumped: Inside The Greatest Political Upset Of All Time’

In a behind-the-scenes look at the biggest political upset in recent history, TRUMPED offers unprecedented access and never-before-seen footage of then-candidate Donald Trump throughout the entirety of the 2016 presidential election, from the primaries through the debates to the dawning realization that the controversial businessman would become the 45th president of the United States. Though these events are freshly ingrained in our collective consciousness, the profound effect of watching them through the prism of an accelerated reality casts new light on the state of the Union while harnessing the power of cinema to expand our perception of the election.

For our March event the crossover topic is activism. We are screening Grasp the Nettle, a documentary which follows the exploits of a ragtag band of land rights activists in London as they struggle against corporations, government, police – and themselves – in their efforts to create alternative communities outside the framework of consumer society.

Attend the event on our Facebook group.

About ‘Grasp the Nettle’

When an eco-village pops up on a piece of disused land in West London, film-maker Dean Puckett gives up everything – his flat, job and normal life – to live among its eclectic inhabitants in an effort to understand what makes them tick. Before he knows it, he is pulled into an epic, inspiring and at times harrowing journey of discovery, as he follows the villagers from the suburbs to the heart of London outside the Palace of Westminster, where they occupy Parliament Square. Their ranks swelled by the homeless, the visionaries and eccentrics of the new-found Democracy Village clash with authority, and each other, as they grapple with how to balance their ideals of freedom with the increasing chaos around them.

Shot over three years in the aftermath of the 2008 banking collapse, Grasp the Nettle is an intimate exploration of the rise and fall of two radical social experiments, pioneered by the loved and the lost of a city reeling from the impact of economic and ecological crisis. In the process, it asks hard questions about the nature of freedom and the meaning of activism in ‘interesting times’.
