Celebrate the release of The New Inquiry Magazine, No. 2: Youth at NYC’s The Kitchen on Tuesday, March 27 for a screening of one of the buried gems of late 60’s youth-power exploitation cinema, “Wild in The Streets.”
Over four decades before “The 99%,” rock star-turned-President Max Frost told America’s youth they were “The 52%” - a majority that should act like it. In the run up to Occupy Wall Street’s declared May 1 general strike, we’ve assembled a panel to discuss the film, pop music, and revolutionary politics featuring:
Greil Marcus:Legendary rock critic and author of Lipstick Traces, Mystery Train, and most recently, The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years
Sara Marcus: Author of Girls to The Front: The True Story of The Riot Grrrl Revolution
Andrew O’Hehir: Head film critic for Salon.com
Laurie Penny: UK columnist and activist, TNI contributing editor, and author of Meat Market: Female Flesh Under Capitalism and Penny Red
Cosmo Bjorkenheim: New York based controversial-film maker and anthropophobe
Moderated by TNI editor Malcolm Harris.
This event is free and open to the public. Drinks are on us.
