The Milky Way and the underground film revolution present: HORNS AND HALOS.
posted by Steve Garfield |
A DOCUMENTARY FILM BY SUKI HAWLEY AND MICHAEL GALINSKY about the publishing of FORTUNATE SON, JAMES HATFIELD'S controversial autobiography about George W. Bush.
MONDAY, AUGUST 4TH AT 9PM
THE MILKY WAY LOUNGE / 403-405 CENTRE ST. JP/ 617.524.3740 FOR CLUB INFO
After being suddenly pulled from the shelves and literally burned by original publisher, St. Martin's Press, just weeks after it came out, HORNS AND HALOS tells the story of the two year battle by SANDER HICKS and SOFT SKULL PRESS to re-release this important book to American readers.
The film is an example of DIY politics and media activism; it is about freedom of speech and literature; it is the powerful and tragic story of three very different men connected by one book: James Hatfield, Sander Hicks, and George W. Bush.
Don't miss the exciting return of HORNS AND HALOS to the Boston area for this one night only screening!
