NYC Bike Family Mass Die-in, Washington Square Park, July 9, 2019 by Transportation Alternatives. #NYCBikeFamily staged mass die-in to protest the killing of cyclists. Non-violent, peaceful memorial event. Drivers have killed 15 people on bikes this year — more than double the number killed this time last year.
#NYCBikeFamily: “We deserve safe passage. We deserve the pure joy of riding a bike. We will not stop riding and we will not accept this injustice.
Making sure that “Mayor Bill de Blasio knows that the NYC Bike Family will not stand for the threat on our lives. Vision Zero is in a state of emergency, and the only way to stop the killings is to break New York City’s car culture.

Orna (Liron Ben Shlush), the mother of three young children, wearing a lot of care taking hats, wants to help her husband struggling to start his own restaurant by wearing another hat. She takes a job, and, cutting to the chase, her boss sexually harasses her even as she her financial success is good for the company. His escalating, menacing sexual harassment creates a crisis for her.
“Slow Burning – builds its tension so subtly you don’t realize you’ve been holding your breath” – Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter.
Holding our breaths? Uh oh!
Director Laviad says about the time she started identifying herself as a feminist, she began directing films in San Francisco in the 1980s. Her 10 documentary and narrative films look at complex social and political issues from the point of view of female protagonists, she says in a statement. “Making films from the point of view of women is a way to remind us that women’s ways of understanding and acting in the world matter, and are worth showing – and this theme is recurrent in all my work.”
Review coming soon.

What the Filmmakers Say
Since the presidential election, cultural divide in America has been the source of riveting and visceral discussions and arguments. Stereotyping and slurs are rampant, finger-pointing and name-calling abound. hillbilly is a personal and political journey by the filmmakers into the heart of the Appalachian coalfields, exploring the role of media misrepresentation in their creation of the iconic American “hillbilly,” and examining the social, cultural, and political underpinnings of this infamous stereotype.
hillbilly will surprise if not shock imaginations because of its revelations, such as the renown artists, poets, activists, queer musicians, “Affrilachian” poets, and intersectional feminists who are unexpected voices emerging from this historically misunderstood region. Author, feminist, and social activist bell hooks is a hillbilly.

What the Film Makers Say
Set in Eastern Ukraine on the front-line of the war, following the life of 10-year-old Ukrainian boy Oleg throughout a year, witnessing the gradual erosion of his innocence beneath the pressures of war. Oleg lives with his beloved grandmother, Alexandra, in the small village of Hnutove. Having no other place to go, Oleg and Alexandra stay and watch as others leave the village. Life becomes increasingly difficult with each passing day, and the war offers no end in sight. In this now half-deserted village where Oleg and Alexandra are the only true constants in each other’s lives, the film shows just how fragile, but crucial, close relationships are for survival.
Through Oleg’s perspective, the film examines what it means to grow up in a war zone: A child’s growing universal struggle to discover what the world is interlaced with all the dangers and challenges the war presents.
Directed by Simon Lereng Wilmont. Produced by Monica Hellström (THE ACT OF KILLING), Final Cut For Real

GrowNYC’s Fresh Food Box Program is a food access initiative that enables under-served communities to purchase fresh, healthy, and primarily regionally grown produce well below traditional retail prices. Through the power of collaborative purchasing, Fresh Food Box customers purchase for $14-15 what would cost $20-$30 in a store. All Fresh Food Box sites accept SNAP/EBT and Health Bucks, to make our shares even more affordable.
The produce included in each Fresh Food Box is the best of what’s seasonally available. From July through November, Fresh Food Box sources from farms in the Northeast; in the winter and spring, Northeast produce is supplemented with produce from carefully vetted farms in Southern states, like Florida. This ensures Fresh Food Box provides a wide variety of fresh produce year-round while driving sales of locally-available items such as apples, root vegetables, eggs, grains, and dried beans.
