Will Arntz’s celebrated movie
“GHETTO PHYSICS: Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up!”
is coming to Yelm Cinemas for a week’s showing Friday, February 25 through Thursday, March 3rd at 7:30pm nightly.
There will be a brief Filmmaker Q & A with Will Arntz,
February 25 & 26 following the show.
“Heralded as “…a radically ingenious, in-your-face documentary … bursting with insights” by Steven Rea of the Philadelphia Inquirer, GHETTOPHYSICS takes an eye-opening look at the power relationships that permeate American society from the toughest street corners to Wall Street, from classrooms to boardrooms. The film utilizes documentary footage, animation, satire and dramatization to illustrate examples culled from the real world — be the players real-life pimps or corporate executives — repeating the same power dynamics that have persisted for centuries.
The film includes interviews with notable entertainers and thinkers, such as Dr. Cornel West, Ice-T, KRS-One, Too Short, John Perkins, former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, William H. Arntz (Co-Director) and Norman Lear,” quoting the Olympia Film Society.
