April 6, 2019: FilmForum: Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People

Apr 6, 2019

Description:

At the height of the Gilded Age, a period of time plagued by corruption and unethical business practices, Joseph Pulitzer was a champion of the working people and immigrants. Being an immigrant from humble roots himself, he used the success of his newspaper, The World, to give voice to the voiceless and to empower the disenfranchised. With his passion for democratic ideals, Pulitzer fought for the free press and essentially created the news as we know it today. The entire concept of reading the newspaper as a morning ritual was invented by Joseph Pulitzer. Though his list of accomplishments seems unending, Pulitzer was a complicated and imperfect man, known for his sharp temper, poor health, and long list of enemies and rivals. This film is narrated by Adam Driver and features Liev Schreiber as Joseph Pulitzer in re-enactments. With stories told by a variety of historians and experts, JOSEPH PULITZER: VOICE OF THE PEOPLE is a fascinating look into the life, accomplishments, and legacy of the man behind the Pulitzer Prize. Join us for a discussion around the question: What's the value of the free press?

March 31, 2019: FilmForum: Hugh Hefner’s After Dark

Mar 31, 2019

Description:

While the old joke that some men only read Playboy for the articles is told with sarcasm, the truth is there was more to the late Hugh Hefner’s work than just centerfolds. His full revolutionary impact is revealed in this compelling documentary from Academy Award®-winning director Brigitte Berman. In 1959, Hefner started a television program called Playboy’s Penthouse. Set up to look like an apartment party, the variety show featured a slew of legendary performers. But it was its racial diversity that stood out most. Years before MTV was pressured to play black artists, Hefner gave them representation, regardless of the consequences. Despite it being the time of Jim Crow, everyone was treated as equals on Hefner’s show, much to the chagrin of some Americans. The program was canceled after two seasons, but reemerged later as Playboy After Dark, which continued to push for equality. In addition to performances from artists such as James Brown, Tina Turner, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Buddy Rich, the show featured candid conversations about censorship, racism, and progressive politics. Going beyond the bunnies, HUGH HEFNER’S AFTER DARK: SPEAKING OUT IN AMERICA examines Hefner’s unheralded role as civil rights activist. Join us to discuss the question: how far can we push boundaries before they push back?

Aging structures susceptible to fires ignited years of devastating damage, with no end

Nov 12, 2018

Who has a right to citizenship? Should individuals automatically have a right to citizenship in the country they are born in, regardless of where their parents are from? What does the Fourteenth Amendment actually say about birthright citizenship? And what, if any, are the implications for our democracy if we abandon jus soli? A panel discusses, featuring Robert L. Brown, Attorney, Robert Brown Immigration Law, LLC; Stephanie Hinnershitz, Assistant Professor of History at Cleveland State University; Stephen R. Lazarus, Associate Professor of Law, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University; and moderated by Stephanie A. Jansky, City Club's Director of Programming.

July 16, 2018: CCMV: The Aftermath of Deindustrialization: Class, Culture, and Conversation

Jul 16, 2018

Description:

The Mahoning Valley knows deindustrialization. For decades, our communities have struggled with the effects of widespread job-loss on our populations, our infrastructure, and our collective consciousness. Most often, the conversation about the long-term consequences of this shift are centered on policy and politics. Sherry Lee Linkon, Professor of English and American Studies at Georgetown University and former co-director of Youngstown State University’s Center for Working Class Studies, believes the legacy of deindustrialization - what she calls its’ “half-life” - is also powerfully revealed in working-class poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and drama, as working-class writers “reflect the importance of memory and the struggle to imagine a different future.” Linkon’s new book, The Half-Life of Deindustrialization, makes the case that the study of the rich and varied literature of deindustrialization is indeed a valuable, and different, “data set” by which we can grasp the continuing hold of economic restructuring on our daily lives. Linkon’s book examines a wide range of texts from Eminem’s 8 Mile to the works of local authors and activists like Christopher Barzak and Phil Kidd. Join us as Linkon shares her perspectives on the role of literature on navigating historical change and social and economic transformation.

The reasons for their removal were often unfounded; some were the result of cultural differences that non-Natives didn't understand. More troubling is this practice seemed to be part of a systematic move to distance the children from their heritage and erase their culture. They were given new names and forced to act, dress, and talk like white Americans. These methods were an effort to once again wipe Native Americans from our history

This essentially exclaimed that corporations are people and therefore can give as much money as they want to political activities, as long as it's not done directly through the party or candidate. Basically, outside groups funnel the cash into the cause, without revealing the source. This shady currency is referred to as dark money, which is also the title of this impassioned documentary, DARK MONEY profiles a number of Montana politicians and journalists who are once again battling to maintain a fair democracy in their state. If they are successful at reforming campaign finance, they could set an example for the rest of the country. See Montana's brave mission to fight the powers that be in DARK MONEY.

April 11, 2018 - FilmForum: ACORN and the Firestorm

Apr 11, 2018

Description:

When the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) was mentioned during the 2008 Presidential debates, it should have been a boon to the group who had spent decades fighting for impoverished communities. As with all social justice groups, growth in the public view makes you a target of the elite, and ACORN began to come under Republican ire for the crime of getting black people registered to vote. ACORN AND THE FIRESTORM provides a behind-the-scenes look at how one of the country’s leading community organizations fell from grace at the hands of two conservative amateur journalists. Included are interviews with Wade Rathke who founded ACORN in 1970; Bertha Lewis, the dedicated ACORN employee who rose to CEO during the time of turmoil; and Iowa Republican Representative Steve King. In a time when the power balance is ever widening, ACORN AND THE FIRESTORM is a eulogy to the last vestiges of power for the people. What is the responsibility of citizen journalism?

April 10, 2018 - FilmForum: Intelligent Lives

Apr 10, 2018

Description:

How much weight does an IQ score actually hold? Considering all the different types of intelligence, can a simplistic number truly tell us what someone is capable of? Director Dan Habib, whose career has centered on films about the disabled, certainly doesn't think so. Chances are, after seeing his latest documentary, neither will you. Narrated by award-winning actor Chris Cooper, INTELLIGENT LIVES dismantles the myths about people with intellectual disabilities. Cooper's involvement with the project is personal: his teenage son died of complications from cerebral palsy in 2005. The film focuses on the lives of Micah, Naomie, and Naeer, three charming disabled young-adults who have excelled well beyond the limited expectations that were set for them. With loving and supportive parents who fought to keep them from being segregated in school, they are hardworking and leading productive lives with bright futures ahead of them. By documenting their accomplishments, as well as their struggles, Habib makes a convincing case for a much-needed change in the antiquated and narrow ways in which our society views these individuals. What do we lose when intelligence is defined by a number?

April 7, 2018 - FilmForum: Zero Weeks

Apr 7, 2018

Description:

Although New York and Washington, D.C. recently passed statewide paid family leave programs, they're outliers because the U.S. has no federal paid leave policy. In fact, in in 2016 only 14 percent of American private sector workers had access to paid family leave via their jobs. The sobering documentary ZERO WEEKS addresses this disparity from a variety of perspectives, all of which bolster the case for stronger legislation. Interviews with advocates, economists, lawmakers, and academics explain this complex topic in straightforward, informative ways. On the emotional side, the heartstrings-tugging stories of people who suffer because they lack proper protections are even more convincing. Kesha is a single mom who can't afford to take time off work while receiving chemotherapy to treat her breast cancer. Brian is frustrated by his company's lack of flexibility during his wife's complicated pregnancy. And Jasmine struggles to make ends meet while on unpaid maternity leave. ZERO WEEKS is a persuasive film about the benefits of federal paid leave. Paid family leave. Why not?

She had to face the suicides of her father and brother and uses those experiences to tell the stories of others who struggle with emotional trauma. She also fights to smash the stigma attached to suicide, removing the guilt and shame that survivors often face. In the film, a variety of people talk about their experiences with depression and what led them to want to end it all. You may think a movie about suicide would be all doom and gloom

Mar 19, 2018

Description:

In September 2017, the Trump administration announced that, in six months, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) would end unless Congress passed more comprehensive immigration legislation. On February 26, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it won't immediately take up President Trump's appeal of a lower-court decision that blocked the government from ending DACA. This ruling leaves the Dreamers in limbo while Congress faces increased pressure to pass bipartisan immigration reform that addresses President Trump's four pillars - providing citizenship to the Dreamers, limiting chain migration, ending the visa lottery, and providing funds for the proposed border wall. So, what happens next? Will the next level of rulings come before or after the November midterms? How much pressure can voters exert in those months? Join us for a conversation on the future of immigration reform in the U.S.

Description:

In David Osborne’s new book, Reinventing America's Schools: Creating a 21st Century Education System, he shares the stories of several communities to reflect upon the history and future of public education.

October 16, 2017: CCMV Views & Brews-Rising Sea Levels, Record Temperatures, Extreme Weather Events

Oct 17, 2017

Description:

Global climate change is not just an emerging threat to the environment and public health, it is a current threat to both. Climate change stresses natural ecosystems, undermines our health and wellbeing by contaminating the air we breathe, the water we drink, and eroding the soil that sustains our food supply. Globally, a lack of environmental security means billions of people do not have access to safe water, clean air, adequate food, and proper healthcare. The World Health Organization estimates that between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year due to heat stress, diarrhea, infectious diseases, childhood undernutrition; resulting in billions of dollars more in health care costs. We need to better understand our impact and relationship to the natural environment, the direct costs associated with it, and learn how we can adapt to or alter these imminent threats. Join the City Club of the Mahoning Valley for its second Views & Brews event, a free discussion on global climate change, the environment, and public health.
