Review of PIFF's "Watching the Rhino"

 We're heading into the final phase of the Portland International Film Festival, which closes this coming Saturday, the 21st. Two of tonight's films are a fair representative of the scope of PIFF. First is Milking the Rhino (6:30 at the Broadway 3), David E Simpson's documentary about how Africans in Kenya are dealing with dangerous wild animals. Also on hand is Sugar, a drama by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (who will be in attendance tonight), who also did the respected Half Nelson, which was nominated for an Academy Award. Sugar (6 PM at the Whitsell), which I haven't seen, is about the immigrant experience, in the form of a talented baseball player. This film might be of special interest to viewers who have heard the news story about the two javelin throwers from India who won a baseball throwing TV contest and ended up in America on the Pittsburg Pirates farm team, knowing nothing, absolutely nothing, about the game of baseball.

Radiozine on 02/20/09

Program: 
Radiozine
Air date: 
Fri, 02/20/2009 - 10:30am - 11:00am

The topic is "The Future." The guest is Catlin Gable teacher Mark Lawton, who will present the findings of his year-long foray into the field of future studies and its implications for education on Tuesday, February 24, at 7 p.m. in the Cabell Center on the school campus, 8825 SW Barnes Rd. The event, this year's Esther Dayman Strong Lecture, is free and open to the public.

Lawton believes that in today's fast-paced world, students must learn critical thinking skills, and that they must apply those skills in forecasting and preparing for the dramatic changes that are coming. "If you create plausible scenarios for the future, your organization will be ready to adapt, no matter what happens." says Lawton. "And if you are forward thinking, you can shape the future you want instead of just responding to what happens."
