On the evening of April 11th, 2011 hundreds of people experienced something incredible at the Harlem Stage, a cultural event so unique in spirit, diversity, imagination, and inspiration that many who attended walked into the Harlem night afterward aching to share what they had just been part of. Many said in one form or another, “If only ___ had been here.” Leaving the event, one student described it this way, "It feels like hope. That’s honestly what it feels like..."
The world can soon experience the hope and vision of On the Occasion of Publication of BAsics: A Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World in the form of a film being made of the event with the potential to reach, challenge, and inspire millions. You can help make that happen.
House parties are being hosted this weekend across the country to raise $23,000 for the film by December 12th.

April 2011 marked the release of BAsics, a book by Bob Avakian, the revolutionary leader who has developed a new synthesis of communism. This book of quotations and essays speaks to essential questions of revolution and human emancipation. On this occasion, a range of artists, musicians, dancers and actors from a diversity of perspectives came together in a unique cultural event to celebrate revolution and the vision of a new world.
This film will tell the story of what those artists did and why they did it. It will bring a taste of the remarkable connection between these artists and the hundreds in the audience that night.
For everyone who has dreamed of a different and better world or wondered how art and culture can be part of creating it, this is a film that needs to be seen.
But it won't be made without your support.
Contribute toward the production and release of the upcoming full length film about this event (currently set for late winter). Be part of something that can be a source of great inspiration, enabling imagination to take flight with revolution and envisioning a whole other way the world can be.
