RooDePaul will be hosting our first movie night and outreach event this Monday, May 16 from 6:00-8:00 in Arts & Letters 305. We will be watching a film, “We Are Superman” (synopsis below), having exciting political discussion, and, of course, eating pizza! Before the movie, we will have a quick info-session on our chapter of Roosevelt and all the work we are doing. After the movie, there will be a short discussion about the film and how it is applicable to our lives as movers and shakers! Please RSVP for this event on the Facebook event page, linked below and on our RooDePaul Facebook page.

“We Are Superman”

we are superman

Directed By Kevin Bryce

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eyl3qBRNJg0

“We Are Superman is the story of the American urban core in a time when racism has gone underground, prejudice is glossed over, and progress is built on the backs of the poor. The film is an emotional testament to a select few who are working tirelessly in the heart of Kansas City at the corner of 31 Street and Troost Avenue; working to transform a dividing line into a gathering place.

A Catholic nun is restoring imagination back into the minds of abandoned children. An Orthodox Priest is providing reconciliation to an age old division. An old-time engineer has abandoned his cushy career to reengage despondent and broken fathers back into the lives of their families and communities. A young, zealous pioneer is leading a movement against legal theft from the pockets of the poor. She is standing up against one of the largest lobbyists in the state of Missouri.

It is the story America has been waiting for. A community has stopped waiting on the next elected official, board of directors, or MIA policy maker to come and save them. Instead they are gathering the people, they are standing united together and saying with one resounding voice: We Are Superman. This is their story.”
