We received the following press release:


March 11, 2013


On March 16 and 17, the film BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS! premieres at the AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9 Theater in New York, and 3 other cities nationwide.

This is a film of a talk Bob Avakian did in the fall of 2012.  Why should you do a story on the premiere of the film of this talk this week?  Simply: It's by far the most important thing people will  be doing on March 16. It deals with the most important thing there could be–the real possibility of bringing into being a radically different world, where all this madness, all the oppression and injustice, all the abuse and degradation that is so much a part of life now, would be done away with.  If anybody can think of anything more important than that–let's hear it!

From Bob Avakian, in the film BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS!:

“Those this system has cast off, those it has treated as less than human, can be the backbone and driving force of a fight not only to end their own oppression, but to finally end all oppression, and emancipate all of humanity."

Who is Bob Avakian

"My dear brother Bob Avakian... is the chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party.... He is one of the few coming out of the 60's who never sold out, he never caved in, he never gave up, held on to his forging of a rigorous, scientific analysis of the objective realities that are driven by a revolutionary love – because he has such a deep love for poor people, oppressed people, all around the world.  Whether you agree or disagree with our brother, one thing you cannot deny: that he is the real thing. No doubt about it."
—Cornel West, introducing his interview with Bob Avakian on the Smiley & West radio show (October 5, 2012)

From one of the filmmakers:
“Yes, this is a film, but that is not its essence.  This is a daring, substantive, scientific, summoning to revolution.  6+ hours that can change how you see the world and what you do with the rest of your life.”

In addition to NYC, the film will premiere that same weekend in Los Angeles, Chicago, and the SF Bay area.

Read what others are saying about Bob Avakian and this film:

"Having gone and listened to a live, public Bob Avakian speech, as I have, is to be exposed to one of the most provocative, serious and controversial social thinkers of our time. He's an American original who should be heard, debated and critiqued for these dramatic and troubling times."
—James Vrettos, professor, John Jay College, NYC
