War In The Mind – 02/28/12 – Drexel Theater – Columbus, OH

Event
War In The Mind
When
Tuesday, February 28, 2012
7:30pm - All Ages
Where
2254 E Main St
Columbus, OH, USA 43209-2319
Other Info
It's called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: the unending echo of battle etched in the brain may affect up to 15% of soldiers by some estimates. It can destroy families, and can leave its sufferers unable to work, addiction addled and changed.

All the soldiers who bravely speak out in this film are doing so because they want us to understand what they endure. They also want to reach out to others who are suffering in silence, and may feel the only way of ending their pain is ending their lives.

Senator and L. General (Retired) Roméo Dallaire also plays a major role in this film. For many years he has heroically spoken out in public to declare that he suffered intensely from PTSD and had attempted suicide. And today he continues to campaign on behalf of all soldiers who suffer.

War in the Mind also investigates the issue of soldier suicide. Statistics from past and present wars tell the sad story of the magnitude of this problem. Families who have felt invisible, their sons' stories unacknowledged, tell of the impact of their loss.

Brother Towns/Pueblos Hermanos – 01/24/12 – Drexel Theater – Columbus, OH

Event
Brother Towns/Pueblos Hermanos
When
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
7:30pm - All Ages
Where
2254 E Main St
Columbus, OH, USA 43209-2319
Other Info
Brother Towns/Pueblos Hermanos is a story about two communities in two different nations and how they intertwine. Ultimately, it is about how we define ourselves as nations and neighbors, our vision of community, and our efforts to connect to one another. News stories about immigrants in the United States appear on TV and in the papers daily. But we don't have to listen to the news to know that undocumented immigrants live in nearly every community across the U.S. Thus Brother Towns is a story that also affects nearly every city and town in Mexico and Central America, and one that helps us think about not only citizenship, but what it means to be human.

Admission is free. Screening co sponsored by the Free Press.

PRICELE$$ – 11/22/11 – Drexel Theater – Columbus, OH

Event
PRICELE$$
When
Tuesday, November 22, 2011
7:30pm - All Ages
Where
2254 E Main St
Columbus, OH, USA 43209-2319
Other Info
From Emmy-nominated Habitat Media (Empty Oceans Empty Nets and Farming the Seas) comes PRICELE$$, a film exploring the consequences of an electoral system that can obligate our leaders to the special interests bankrolling their election campaigns. The filmmakers follow a river of money through two national policies that affect the everyday lives of most citizens: agriculture & energy. In addition to time spent with farmers and an unusual group of Iraq War veterans, the filmmakers visit seasoned lawmakers, lobbyists and some dauntless citizen watchdogs. A classroom full of savvy civics students help provide comic relief. PRICELE$$ also takes a behind-the-scenes look at Arizona’s road-test of an electoral reform that some observers believe can free Congress from the corrosive influence of big-money donors and lobbyists. Narrated by filmmaker Steve Cowan, PRICELE$$ was made on location in Washington D.C., New York, Iowa, Arizona, California and Oregon.

Winner of the Columbus Institute of Contemporary Journalism Award and the Silver Chris Award.

Co sponsored by the Free Press. Admission is free.

Is “The Man” controlling the vertical, the horizontal, and the channel you’ll be on?
In a privatized American Internet, is big business “Big Brother”
or does the free market protect and serve the needs of the average
citizen with its invisible hand? With the simple act of swapping files,
barbershop quartet baritone Robb Topolski finds himself at ground
zero of a landmark case whose outcome will affect the rights of every
American citizen.
Following one man’s personal quest to defend what he believes to be
his inalienable rights, BARBERSHOP PUNK examines the critical issues
surrounding the future of the American Internet and what it takes to challenge
the status quo.

Contemplating the future of the American Internet and the inalienable
rights under review, the film features discussions with Ian MacKaye,
Damian Kulash of OK Go, Henry Rollins, Janeane Garofalo, EFF’s
John Perry Barlow, U.S. Congressman Chip Pickering, Congressman
Marsha Blackburn, Free Form DJ Jim Ladd, Clinton White House Press
Secretary Mike McCurry, Michelle Combs of the Christian Coalition,
Songwriters Guild President Rick Carnes, NARAL’s Ted Miller, lobbyist
Jack Burkman, and FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein, among others.

Admission is free for students, CIFVF members. All others just $5 at the door.
The Canzani Center is located just south of the giant ART. Parking is
free in CCAD lots.
