REPORTING ON THE TIMES: THE NEW YORK TIMES & THE HOLOCAUST (USA 18min)
Thursday October 24, 7:20PM
Director/Producer: Emily Harrold
REPORTING ON THE TIMES is a short documentary film inspired by Laurel Leff’s award-winning book Buried by The Times. The film explores how The New York Times handled reports of The Holocaust during WWII. It also investigates why The Times, a Jewish owned newspaper, buried more than one thousand
articles in its back pages. Was it simply an oversight? Or did the publishers and editors fear an American anti-Semitic backlash? Through interviews and testimony of a Holocaust survivor, historians and New York Times journalists, Reporting on The Times encourages audiences to re-evaluate America’s place as “The Great Liberator.” The film also asks viewers to consider the power of the press in creating change.
BITTER SEEDS (India/USA 88 min)
Director/Producer: Micha X. Peled
Thursday October 24, 7:50PM
Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Encina Hall, 616 Serra Street
As industrial agriculture spreads around the world, many small-scale farmers are losing their land. Nowhere is the situation more desperate than in India, where every 30 minutes one farmer, deep in debt and unable to provide for his family, commits suicide. It’s an epidemic, which has claimed over a quarter million lives. BITTER SEEDS raises critical questions about the human cost of genetically modified agriculture and the future of how we grow things.
