KBOO at the Clinton: WOODSTOCK: The Directors Cut

Categories:
Date: 
Mon, 08/18/2014 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Description: 

1969 was a year unlike any other. Man first set foot on the moon. The New York Mets won the World Series against all odds. KBOO Community Radio was born. And for three days in the rural town of Bethel, New York, half a million people experienced the single most defining moment of their generation; a concert unprecedented in scope and influence, a coming together of people from all walks of life with a single common goal: Peace and music. They called it Woodstock.

What better way to celebrate both the 45th anniversary of KBOO and the 45th anniversary of Woodstock than with a screening of the entire Director's Cut version--all 225 minutes of it. Come for a little or stay for it all.

$7 suggested donation.

The three-day Woodstock music festival in 1969 was the pivotal event of the 1960s peace movement, and this landmark concert film is the definitive record of that milestone of rock & roll history. It's more than a chronicle of the hippie movement, however; this is a film of genuine historical and social importance, capturing the spirit of America in transition, when the Vietnam War was at its peak and antiwar protest was fully expressed through the liberating music of the time. With a brilliant crew at his disposal (including a young editor named Martin Scorsese), director Michael Wadleigh worked with over 300 hours of footage to create his original 225-minute director's cut, which was cut by 40 minutes for the film's release in 1970.

Drones in Oregon: Myths, Facts, and Futures

Portland: Community Forum about Drones

The use of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), is a controversial issue.  Most public discussion of drones has focused on military use.  Less attention has been paid to the expanding use of domestic drones. Oregon passed HB 2710, restricting public agency use of drones, but with no guidance on private use.

To help us understand the safefy and privacy concerns associated with drones, Oregonians for Drone Control is hosting a panel discussion moderated by Steve Duin between nationally known panelists - a retired US colonel, a drone industry leader, a national robotics expert, and an Oregon legislator - on the uses and limits on drone technology, and who should decide. 

Speakers include:

Oregonians for Drone Control  has begun a campaign to enact laws and regulations for the operaon of drones in Oregon.  Oregon as well as most of the United States has many questions with regards to drones concerning weaponizing them and their use in surveillance.


Admission: $5-20 sliding scale; no one turned away for lack of funds
Doors open at 6:30 PM; come early and talk with our tablers.
