Berkeley, 5/14: Carry It Forward [film]

CARRY IT FORWARD stars activist legend Angela Davis as the program’s narrator,Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues and Emotional Creature) portraying Ethel Rosenberg, and Cotter Smith as Julius Rosenberg. The production uses dramatic readings, acted vignettes, poetry, music, and historical photos to dramatize the last four days of the Rosenbergs’ lives through their prison letters and Robby and Michael Meeropol’s firsthand accounts.

The film also tells the stories of present-day activist families the Rosenberg Fund for Children assists (including the family of Russell Maroon Shoatz), and spotlights current movements for peace, environmental justice, immigrants’ rights, civil liberties and other progressive struggles from Idle No More and Stop, Stop and Frisk, to the fight to free all political prisoners.
