Encircle Films present: The Corporate Coup D’Etat!

November 7 @ 6:30 pm

Encircle Films is excited to tell you about our screening of the extraordinary film, The Corporate Coup D’Etat, which takes a complex political/historical theme and brings it to life. It creates a powerful cinematic experience that explains how President Trump is the result of failed neoliberal globalist policies, and a ‘corporate coup d’état’ in which corporations and billionaires were able to gradually take control of the political process in the U.S. and elsewhere. Threaded through the film are the stories of the ultimate victims – working class and poor people in ‘sacrifice zones’ like Camden, New Jersey and Youngstown, Ohio. In 2016 they felt abandoned by the elites of both parties, and voted for Donald Trump who promised he would be different.

We are honored to announce that renowned national journalist Jeff Cohen will be joining us for a discussion after the film. Jeff, interviewed in Corporate Coup D’Etat, is the founder of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, a media watchdog in the US.

Metro serves dinner you can enjoy during the film.

You can view a trailer of “Corporate Coup d’Etat” here.

Here’s a link to buy tickets in advance, which we highly recommend as we expect a sellout.

Radio station KEPW is hosting a reception for Mr. Cohen on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 5–8pm at the Wine Lab, 488 Lincoln Street. They invite you to join them for a discussion of “Trump and impeachment, the Democrats and 2020.”

Thank you to Community Rights Lane County  and EPW/KEPW 93.7 FM for sponsoring this film.

Hope to see you there!
