Description: 
Two films about the rise of the fascist right will be screened, one a ten-minute short "The Battle for the Real", a film that shows how both activists and fascists have used media tools, while calling for an ethical use of platforms, and "Antifa", a 30-minute film about who Antifascists are and how they have fought the racists and misogynists that are taking advantage of the momentum given to them since the campaign and election of Donald Trump to the White House. The screenings will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Executive Director of the Philadelphia-based antifascist organization One People's Project, and feature antifascist activists who have been on the frontlines over the past two years.
