Hey guys,

Hugo

Hi Hugo,

We are showing a film on World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov at
the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival called IN
THE HOLY FIRE OF REVOLUTION. Garry will be attending the
screening on Monday June 15 at 6:30pm to speak after the film.
It's a very powerful film, and we think it would be wonderful
if some of your members could come out for it!
You can read about the film here:

We have a Facebook event posted here (in case you can share
this with your group):

The description is pasted below. Please let me know if you have
any questions, or would like more information. Thanks so much
Hugo!

IN THE HOLY FIRE OF REVOLUTION
A unique take on Putin?s Russia as seen through the experiences
of chess champion turned activist Garry Kasparov. Garry
Kasparov has just been detained for hours at an airport on his
way to a demonstration. Why? The chess master has started a
second life, in politics. Foreign photographers repeatedly
portray him in a chess pose, head in hands, staring at a
fictitious chessboard. But the game is unfair, because now his
opponent is Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin systematically
sabotages the activities of Kasparov and his party, The Other
Russia. The film is a must-see for anyone who wants to know
what Russia looks like today.
