A film festival on American hegemony is being organised at Jaaga - creative common ground. An extract from the website-
Hello there! Are you alive right now? Yes, I believe? Well then you have
been structured in many ways by ideologies, mainly economic, emerging
from the United States of America in the last one century.
This film festival aims at presenting several issues which are usually
not taken up in mainstream media (or hide behind the workings of
mainstream media, as you shall see in a few of the films to be
screened). We shall screen a personal selection of six films - a mix of
mainstream movies and documentaries.

the TV9 building, across from the Hockey Association Club main gate on
>> If you are driving:
- Get onto Richmond Road, going towards Richmond Circle (it's a one way road in the right direction)
- Take a left just before Richmond Circle at the Coffee Day (you'll be turning onto Rhenius St but the sign is hard to see)
- Just go straight and you'll pass TV9 on your left and the Hockey Stadium on your right.
* Look for a strange building with a red gate :)
