The Ghosts of Tonkin

Sat, 09/27/2014 - 7:30pm - 10:00pm
Description: 

August 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin resolution.  Bellingham TheatreWorks is touring a 60-minute theatre piece called The Ghosts of Tonkin, a drama about Wayne Morse and the origins of the Vietnam War. 

This award-winning play dramatizes the behind-the-scenes story of how seemingly well-intentioned public officials brought about one of the most devastating chapters in the history of the United States: The Vietnam War.  The Vietnam War devastated two countries, toppled the President of the United States, and killed two million people.  And one man tried to stop it before it began, Oregon’s Senator Wayne Morse.   

Tickets are $20 (including service fee) and are available at the door, or online at http://portlandstate.universitytickets.com/user_pages/event.asp?id=906

 My Walk Has Never Been Average is a multimedia presentation based on the lives of women whose stories are rarely told.

Voices in Action: Human Rights on Film - NELSON MANDELA: THE MYTH AND ME

Thu, 11/06/2014 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Description: 

While cinema provides entertainment and escape, for many committed filmmakers and viewers it is a vital medium of engagement and a powerful tool for social action. Tackling wide-ranging, thought-provoking issues, activist filmmakers help deepen our awareness of injustice and the values of dignity and equality as they tell universal stories of struggle and triumph. We hope these informative and inspirational films will broaden understanding and stimulate involvement as they reveal hearts and minds focused on challenges that touch us all. Our thanks go to the Human Rights Watch Film Festivals in London and New York for their showcasing and circulating of works of vitally engaged filmmakers, and KBOO Community Radio for their media sponsorship.

NELSON MANDELA: THE MYTH AND ME
DIRECTOR: KHALO MATABANE
SOUTH AFRICA/GERMANY, 2013

Khalo Matabane was an idealistic teenager with fanciful ideas about a post-apartheid era of freedom and justice when the great icon of liberation Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1990. In a personal odyssey encompassing an imaginary letter to Mandela and conversations with politicians, activists, intellectuals, and artists, Matabane questions the meaning of freedom, reconciliation, and forgive- ness—and challenges Mandela’s legacy in today’s world of conflict and inequality.

REACHING FOR THE STARS
DIRECTOR: BERIT MADSEN
DENMARK/IRAN/GERMANY/NORWAY, 2013

Sepideh is a young Iranian woman who dares to dream—of a future as an astronaut. At night, she stares up at the universe. At home, full of hope and longing, she watches recordings of the first female Iranian in space, Anousheh Ansari. But not everyone appreciates her boundless ambition—becoming an astronaut is not exactly a normal goal for a girl in Iran. Her families worry. She doesn’t want to learn to cook, hardly ever visits her family, and doesn’t seem to be thinking about marriage at all. As we follow Sepideh, it becomes clear just how at odds her dreams are with her current reality and the expectations of those around her. (90 mins.)

WATCHERS OF THE SKY
DIRECTOR: EDET BELZBERG
US, 2014

Interweaving four stories of remarkable courage, compassion, and determination, WATCHERS OF THE SKY uncovers the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin—the man who created the word “genocide” and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize–winning book A Problem from Hell, Belzberg’s film embarks on a provocative journey from Nuremberg, Germany, to The Hague, Netherlands, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.
