"Bigger than the Beatles - Obama and the Peeps" (2010, 82 min - view trailer), by Charles Krezell - takes us back to the exciting days of the Obama Inauguration, as seen through the eyes of everyday people in Washington, DC. Filmed the week of Barack Obama's inauguration on January 20, 2009, "Bigger than the Beatles" follows DC's own Dunbar High School Marching Band and students from the Horizons alternative school in suburban Atlanta, as they prepare for the inauguration. Bigger than the Beatles captures the strong feelings in 2009--energy, enthusiasm and the idea of something new emerging in our country. Three years later, it allows us to reflect on our current realities and urges us to consider -- what is necessary for real change?
The screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion with director Charles Krezell, producer David Minckler and TV producer / former WPFW radio host, Konyka Dunson.
