This Tuesday, Cinema Politica will host its first screening of the semester, of the documentary Roadsworth: Crossing the Line. The story of notorious Montreal stencil artist Peter Gibson, aka “Roadsworth,” the documentary follows him through the early-morning streets of Montreal, Paris, London and Amsterdam, exploring intentions and inspirations through the lens of his concerns about art and freedom of expression. Gibson has dealt with prosecution both at home and abroad as a result of his work; such controversy illustrates the extent to which his art is challengeing. Support Cinema Politica this Tuesday and enjoy the free screening of a film that promises “the language of the streets.”
Cinema Politica will screen Roadsworth: Crossing the Line on September 29 at 8pm in Leacock 26.
