The seventh annual Chicago Anarchist Film Festival runs Saturday and Sunday, April 28 and 29, at Loyola Univ. Quinlan Life & Science Center, 6525 N. Sheridan. Each night's program begins at 7:30 PM, runs about three hours, and screens by video projection; admission is $7. Among the works showing on Saturday are Marc Moscato's The More Things Stay the Same, which profiles Chicago physician and anarchist Ben Reitman (a lover of Emma Goldman), and Joel Sucher and Steven Fischler's Durruti: En la Revolucion Espanola (90 min.), about Spanish anarchist Buenaventura Durruti. Sunday's program includes Tami Gold and Gerardo Renique's Land Rain and Fire: Report From Oaxaca (28 min.), about the October 2006 teachers' strike in Mexico that claimed the life of U.S. documentary maker Brad Will, and Jonathan Culp's Grilled Cheese Sandwich (90 min.), a comedy about high school revolutionaries.
