More movies at MoRUS and 'Garbagia Island'

The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) is continuing to host Movies @ MoRUS, a monthly film series exploring themes such as social justice and political reform.

Playing tomorrow night (July 21):

"The True Cost," a 2015 documentary "examining fast-fashion’s global supply chain and its tragic effects on human lives and the environment." The film is screening at La Plaza Cultural Community Garden, on the southwest corner of Avenue C and Ninth Street, at 8:30 p.m. Movies @ Morus are free to the public but a suggested donation of $5 is appreciated.

And via the EVG inbox...

"The True Cost" sets a fitting backdrop for MoRUS’s participation in Loisaida Center’s Community Summer Program, “Garbagia Island,” a dystopian representation of the Island of Puerto Rico and its current economical and political situation.

The program will present workshops open to the public and held at the Loisaida Center and La Plaza Cultural Community Garden where participants will learn, among other activities, how to create fashion, masks and costumes with recycled materials. A culmination of these community workshops will manifest in a up-cycled fashion and costume presentation at La Plaza on Saturday, July 30 at 4 p.m.

To learn more about these free, pirate-themed events visit the Loisaida website.
