Event Description:

As part of its monthly film series, Houston Indymedia will screen 'Pirate Radio USA’ at 7:00pm, Wednesday, February 25th at Rice Cinema.

Pirate Radio USA is a documentary about the underground world of illegal radio in America, where people play what they want and say what they want–unless the FCC catches them…

DJ’s Him and Her, from their live Pirate Radio USA Studio, take you on a rock-n-roll journey inside rogue radio stations across the country to see why Americans defy Federal Law to free the radio airwaves. On the way see the rise of Big Media, the growth of Citizen Media to encounter it, and witness their showdown over the truth during the 1999 World Trade Organization meetings in Seattle. See the battle to free the airwaves live – and find out the real price of freedom.

Rice Cinema is located at Rice University, Entrance #8 (University & Stockton).

There is a $10 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. All proceeds will benefit Houston Indymedia and KPFT 90.1 FM - Radio for Peace.
