Harvest of Empire

Polarizing issue of immigration has its origins exposed in historical doc

New, PBS-style documentary by Peter Getzels & Eduardo López, tries to tackle the issue of immigration from a fresh perspective. Based on the book by award-winning journalist Juan González (“Democracy Now!”), Harvest of Empire asks one very simple question: What are these people doing here in the first place? The knee-jerk, surface-layer answer is that people from poor countries emigrate to America to make more money. Simple, no? But why are so many Latin American countries riddled with civil war, organized crime and overwhelming poverty in the first place? The answer, as in so many cases, lies in America’s neo-colonial government policy.

Get Your Gay Geek On

Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

Out actor/comedian Tom Lenk (star of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” The Cabin in the Woods and Transformers) is the special guest at this year's 13th Annual Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. He'll be talking about his “dorkumentary” Nerdgasm, in which he travels to England to fulfill his lifelong dream of performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—while indulging nerdy British fantasies like following in the footsteps of Harry Potter. SWGLFF starts Friday, Oct. 9, at Guild Cinema with Peter Greenaway's lush Opening Night drama Eisenstein in Guanajuato. It runs through Oct. 18 with 26 LGBT-centric dramas, comedies, documentaries, romances and horror films from around the world plus six blocks of shorts. Nerdgasm will screen Saturday, Oct. 17, at 9:15pm.
