Grab your popcorn and find a cozy spot in your home on Friday, January 14th as the Topanga
Peace Alliance hosts another virtual Friday Film Night featuring the documentary “Can You Hear
Us Now?” an extremely well researched and produced film about political inequity. While shot in
Wisconsin, there are similar irregularities going on nationwide. The depiction of political
gerrymandering through the lens of a grassroots movement is powerful and both beautiful and
heartbreaking to watch. This is an important piece regardless of your political affiliation.
Featuring small-town activism; nail-biting elections; and a last-minute power grab. Filmed in
Wisconsin, where extreme partisanship has become the norm, voters are finding their lives
increasingly irrelevant to state lawmakers. Through the stories of four determined women, Can You
Hear Us Now? unravels the ways years of one-party control have reshaped democracy in a state in the crosshairs of American politics.
We will open the Zoom event at around 7:15. Before the film, we will have announcements
regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice. We will enable video so that
we can optionally see each other if you choose to enable your camera. After the film we will have
a discussion with speakers to be announced shortly.
