A few other things going on in Central Indiana this week- 10 Rules for Dealing with the Police - debreiscd on its official site as a short film and a legal rights tool used to present citizens with important information needed when faced with uncomfortable situations with the police - shows at both 3 and 4:30 on Sunday, July 24, at the Georgetown 14 in Indianapolis.Also, the documentary Make- about four self-taught artists- shows from 7 to 11 PM (?- not sure if it will really go that late) on Wednesday, July 27, at the Earth House Collective in Indianapolis.Since it can take a while for comments with links in them to post, I'll put links in a subsequent post.
