A film with a powerful message that resonates 38 years after the events it depicts occurred, Walkout is the stirring true story of the Chicano students of East LA, who in 1968 staged several dramatic walkouts in their high schools to protest academic prejudice & dire school conditions. Aided by a popular & progressive young teacher, Sal Castro, Paula Crisostomo & a group of young Chicano activists battle parents, teachers, bureaucrats, the police & public opinion to make their point. Along the way, the students learn profound lessons about embracing their own identity & standing up for what they believe in. Set in 1968, a tumultuous year that shook America to its foundation, Walkout is a vivid reminder that people can change the world.

Butoh - originating in post-war Japan, a dance form combining theatre, improvisation and now mixed media-video-photo projection. It allows for the emergence of movement from within rather than imposing rules from the outside, challenging the audience to free themselves from their frenzied, fast-paced, technology-driven lives, and observe what happens in the interstices of shifting time. There will be outdoor seating.
