'Aftermass' documentary, about Critical Mass in Portland, will open May 23

meanwhileinpdx:

A local man’s documentary history of the Critical Mass movement in Portland will premiere May 23 at the Clinton Street Theater, Southeast 26th and Clinton.

"It tells the story of how advocacy and activism coalesced to create Portland’s bicycle network over the last 40 years," Aftermass filmmaker Joe Biel wrote in an email.

Biel began filming the story of the monthly urban bike ride, which mixed fun and activism, in 2009. Among other things, he scored a pre-candidacy interview with future Mayor Charlie Hales, who twice checked out Critical Mass by joining it anonymously while he served on city council 15 years ago. We’ve covered the making of this film, and parts of the story it tells, for years, so it’s exciting to see it on the big screen at last.


In 2006, the Portland Police Bureau spent $20,000 on Critical Mass-related traffic enforcement. Eight years later, there are regularly no participants in the monthly ride (though the local organization’s website was updated last November).

"Was it no longer relevant, did its activity not appeal to a cycling ‘mainstream,’ or was a police crackdown just so successful?" the movie’s press materials ask. "What are the new goals of cyclists? What is the new activism? How are objectives reached? And perhaps most importantly, how had Critical Mass compounded with other activism and advocacy to create North America’s premiere bicycling mecca?"

The film is the winner of the Board Choice Award from the Eugene International Film Festival. Distribution rights have been sold to The Bosko Group for DVD and online video on demand such as Netflix and iTunes. Tickets for the May 23 showing, at 7 p.m., will cost $7.

I got a fantastic write up on Zine Reviews for my latest venture, The Blue Suitcase, a four part zine series on a suitcase I found filled with horribly offensive and paranoid writing! Here’s a snippet:
"If I were writing this review in a bygone era, I might open with a line similar to this: ‘the young Mr. Carlough has triumphed again upon the printed page, sharing a gripping tale of a forgotten man’s curious ephemera.’”
Cool, right? Read the whole review HERE, and click HERE to buy the zine, or click the pic.

New Ben Nadler publication available for pre-order. Looks insane good: 

Much has been written about the glamorous—and short-lived—New York City punk rock scene of the late 1970s. Less has been written about the second-wave punk scene that followed in the 1980s. Unlike the earlier scene, the ‘80s punk scene took place largely outside of the established downtown clubs, in the streets and squats of the Lower East Side. 
 
Punk in NYC’s Lower East Side, 1981-1991—the first installment in Microcosm’s Scene History Series—offers a glimpse into this important cultural moment, which has had such a lasting impact on American subcultures, from Hardcore, to Skinhead, to, most crucially, Anarcho-Punk. 
 
Drawing on both archival documents and original interviews, this zine explores the music of the era’s bands, including Bad Brains, Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, False Prophets, Urgent Fury, No Thanks, and Reagan Youth. At the same time, the scene is situated within the broader social context, from the election of Ronald Reagan to the Tompkins Square Riots. Woven throughout is the tragic story of New York City’s most legendary anarcho-punk, Reagan Youth’s Dave Insurgent.
