In light of recent Trump executive orders, and increased police activity and concerns at Standing Rock, it no longer seems sensible to wait to schedule "Flowers for Peace" (the election documentary), or "War of North Dakota" (the Standing Rock documentary). So, we are actively seeking venues (anywhere in the US or Canada), to screen both docs.
"War of ND" Feb 5th at Encuentro 5 in Boston. 7PM
"War of ND" Feb 17th at MassArt Boston. 7PM
"War of ND" Feb 24th at Encuentro 5 in Boston. 6PM
"Flowers for Peace" SOMA ARTS. Somerville MA. 5:30 PM.
"War of ND" Feb 4th. Red Fork Film Fest. Oklahoma. Time TBA
"War of ND" March 19th Wilton, NH Time TBA
The film highlights the actions on the Backwater Bridge and nearby locations at the Standing Rock Reservation leading up to a brutal night in which the Morton County Sheriff's department unleashed rubber bullets, concussion grenades, tear gas and freezing water-cannons on the people of Standing Rock and their environmentalist allies, resulting in 300 injuries. There was widespread hypothermia, the loss of eye-sight (with Sioux Z Dezbah), and a woman (Sophia Wilansky), who lost the use of her arm-- both were injured by explosives launched at the crowd by the police. Appearances and/ or interviews with: Jane Fonda, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, Payu Harris, Wes Clark Jr.,Dallas Goldtooth, Erin Schrode, Josh Fox, Vermin Supreme, and many more. (The film is technically a rough cut, so we are working out a couple technical flaws-- but think it is important to get it out ASAP.) LOCATION: 9a Hamilton Place, Boston, MA (Next to the Orpheum.)

Whether praying for peace with Jeb Bush and John McCain, or getting roughed up by Donald Trump's staff, or stopped and arrested by the police everywhere I go, there's never a dull moment. Along the way, I brainstorm solutions for peace with Bernie Sanders and Dr. Jill Stein, and hang out with libertarian candidate Gary Johnson in drag. I even sing a David Bowie duet with John Kasich and serenade Governor Chris Christie with political satirist Vermin Supreme.
We also have some very serious discussions about the cake of hate Donald Trump has cooked up with Consul General to Mexico Daniel Hernandez Joseph, BLM activists Mercutio Southall, & Sahedra Amen, and Black-Queer Activist Ashley Williams.
Conversely, I speak to prominent Alt-right figures such as white-nationalist Jared Taylor, white nationalist Matthew Heimbach and Andrew Hallinan, the owner of the "Anti-Muslim gun shop" who infamously sold George Zimmerman's confederate flag painting.
Things come to a head at the RNC when right wing talk show host Alex Jones falsely accuses us on his show of throwing bottles of urine at police, and the FBI, Homeland security and ICE agents surprise us with a guns-out, warrantless raid while we slept.
Other appearances by Dr. Cornel West, Cenk Uygur, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Michael Steele, Sarah Palin and many more.

INSURGENCY NOW: EP5: "Rod the Flower Guy."
Recently, my encounter with the anti-Islamic group BAIR was featured on NOW THIS, and achieved a bit of virality at over 700 thousand views. I was at a Donald Trump rally in Dallas, TX, and saw the men at the protest, standing with their AR-15s, and I decided to have a friendly chat, while I put flowers in the barrels of their guns, (recreating the iconic Bernie Boston photo of the Civil Rights era. The Dallas Morning News snapped a photo, which inititally went viral, leading to an article, leading to my video getting picked up.
We must embrace transformation, and step into the future. Where eliminating our dependence on foreign oil will allow us to budget outreach. So that we can build houses and schools, rather than drop bombs and send Drone strikes. We must feed the poor as all major world religions advocate. Our growth and prosperity will be the world’s growth and prosperity. How a society (or in our case a superpower) treats the least of the world’s citizen’s is how history will judge us. Our generosity will make us great. I ask every American citizen to look into their heart and ask, how can we make the world better? This is how we will forge a new era of peace and prosperity.
