"George A. Romero's 1981 cult classic, Knightriders, explores the process of community-building through the lens of that ever-popular safehaven for misfits and outsiders, the ren faire. The film argues passionately for the value of lifestylism and the need to create spaces outside of capitalism in the here and now. Though it addresses serious topics such as police brutality, capitalist recuperation of alternative subcultures, and the difficulties of coming out as queer, it also makes time for joy and wish fulfillment from singing around a campfire to running nazis off the road, not to mention lots and lots of epic motorcycle jousts." -Steph
