Salem Progressive Film Series -- 6 years young and stronger than ever!

One of the best things going keeps going another year:

We hope you are enjoying the final weeks of summer. SPFS starts up again in less than 3 weeks! Please put us on your calendar, for Thursday September 13th.

Our first film of the 2012-13 season, We're Not Broke, is the story about how US corporations have been able to hide over a trillion dollars from Uncle Sam. The film was shown at Sundance Film Festival this year. See the information below for more details.

If you'd like to become a Member of SPFS, for only $50 we will mail you a pass that gives you entrance to all 9 films, from September through May. See the information at the bottom of this email.

We look forward to seeing you in the Grand Theatre on Sept 13th! And as always, thank you for your support. This is the beginning of our 6th year and we could not have done it without you!

We're Not Broke!

America is in the grip of a societal economic panic. Lawmakers cry "We're Broke!" as they slash budgets, lay off schoolteachers, police, and firefighters, crumbling our country's social fabric and leaving many Americans scrambling to survive. Meanwhile, multibillion-dollar American corporations like Exxon, Google and Bank of America are making record profits. And while the deficit climbs and the cuts go deeper, these corporations-with intimate ties to our political leaders-are concealing colossal profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. income tax. This film has won numerous awards, including Sundance Film Festival, 2012.
