The Costa Banderas Democrats Abroad continue their weekly film series for the 2014-2015 season with the change to Wednesday night (instead of Tuesday) and the move from Paradise Community Center to the International Friendship Club.

Join us every Wednesday at 7:00 pm at the IFC clubhouse for screenings of popular current movies.

Here's a preview of our movies for December 2014:

December 3 - Twenty Feet from Stardom: An Oscar-winning 2013 American documentary film directed by filmmaker Morgan Neville and produced by Gil Friesen, a music industry executive whose curiosity to know more about the lives of background singers inspired the making of the film. The film follows the behind-the-scenes of backup singers and stars Darlene Love, Judith Hill, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Táta Vega, and Jo Lawry, among many others. The performances are terrific. 91 minutes. For further information, go to IMDB.

December 10 - Citizen Koch: Set against the rise of the Tea Party in the aftermath of the US Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling, a citizen uprising to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker collides with the Tea Party-aligned “Americans for Prosperity,” a group founded and lavishly financed by two of the world’s richest men —David and Charles Koch. The film demonstrates the Right’s blueprint for taking over the USA one state at a time. 90 minutes. For further information, go to IMDB.
