Mountains that Take Wing! Film Screening on 5/18

In an exciting intersection of different cultures, two women, Angela Davis and Yuri Kochiyama, share their experiences as scholars, activists, and political prisoners in contentious 20th century America. Their powerful messages of justice and equality hold a relevance and magnetism that cannot be ignored. In honor of Asian-American Heritage Month, 5710 presents a film screening of Mountains that Take Wing!

"Telling the story of twentieth-century social change as a chronicle of affection, of correspondence in postcards and letters, of mutual admiration and activist friendship, of two embraces between two comrades, Mountains That Take Wing reminds us that the wild wonder of liberation struggle is not only ours for the taking but already, literally, in our own hands. It is a film that educates with tenderness and passion." — Erica R. Edwards, Professor, UC Riverside
