Anakbayan NJ Presents: This Bloody Blundering Business

BBB

TO RSVP CLICK HERE

“‘This Bloody Blundering Business’ examines the history of American intervention in the Philippines following the Spanish American War. A silent movie format with lively ragtime piano music is combined with a dramatically understated narration and excerpts from `newsreels’ of the period to reveal the nature of American attitudes toward Third World peoples and cultures. 

Directed by Peter Davis
1978, 30 minutes” [from cinemaguild.com]
