Our film this month is 99 homes, a feature length film about evictions in America. This is a departure from our regular documentary to a drama with real actors playing parts in a spell-binding, award-winning story that reveals detached people with power in our mortgage world and the effects on people’s lives:

The film 99 Homes is director/writer Ramin Bahrani’s gripping, dramatic thriller about the winners and losers in America’s mortgage roulette.
In 99 Homes we watch as a recently foreclosed victim played by actor Andrew Garfield, desperate for work becomes the reluctant protégé/employee of the real estate shark Rick Carver(Michael Shannon) who evicted him and his family.
Morally challenging, uncomfortable and rousing 99 Homes forces us to look critically at the current state of economic disparity.
This screening is dedicated to Iris Canada and others who have lost their lives fighting the battle of eviction.
As usual, popcorn and other refreshments will also be available.
