‘Sleep Dealer’ is a Sundance award-winning sci-fi thriller packed with stunning visuals and strong social and political themes. Memo Cruz (Luis Fernando Peña) is a young man in near-future Mexico. When his family is victim of a misguided drone attack he finds himself with no option but to head north, towards the U.S./Mexico border. But migrant workers cannot cross this new world border – it's been sealed off. Instead, Memo ends up in a strange digital factory in Mexico where he connects his body to a robot in America.

The Republicans tag the Obama administration and the Democratic Party with the label  "socialist", as though it were a crime.  Leftists and progressives seem to not mind the label of socialist, so long as they're not accused of communism, which has a history of both honorable mention and also some things not writing home about. And, as one song has it, if you want to be an effective activist for social change..... then "you ain't been doing nothing/if you ain't been called a red". Let's have a talk about what these words mean for what we're trying to do to effect change.
