Stage Boundary Songs

[l]Stage Boundary Songs, a mix by DJ Rupture, Filastine, & Nova Ruth, 54 min[/l]

We live, sleep, dream, and die atop mass graves. Terror and lies prevent us from mourning the dead below us. We no longer remember that we are afraid – it is easier to forget. In this stifling silence, thieves and extortionists help themselves to the spoils like buzzards, reinventing themselves as respectable politicians and entrepreneurs. Yet for those who have the courage to listen, there are cries of resistance, voices of clarity calling for an end to fear, and longing for solidarity. In Stage Boundary Songs, we hear some of the most eloquent of these voices. We are humbled that our film helped inspire this effort.
