Resources for February 20, 2017

Benton, Michael. Recommended Films from the 1930s to the Present Dialogic Cinephilia (Ongoing Archive)

Brubaker, Philip. "And Bob's Your Streaker: The man behind the greatest of all unscripted Oscars moments." Keyframe (February 17, 2017)

Dickey, Colin. "A View to a Kill: By focusing on high-definition thrills, nature documentaries obscure more than they reveal." The New Republic (January 14, 2017)

Hart, David and Derek Stuart. "Last Temptation of Christ and Temptation." Pop Culture Case Study #205 (January 26, 2017)

Oremus, Will, et al. "Leak State." On the Media (February 17, 2017) ["Republicans decry the leakers; Democrats applaud them...oh, how the tables have turned. How to make sense of the Flynn affair and revelations about the Trump team's communications with Russia. Plus, the steady stream of information from within the government has the media debating the power of the so-called “Deep State” -- invisible officials pulling the strings. Also, deploying the word "treason" with care, what Slobodan Milošević teaches us about Donald Trump, and what Hugo Chávez does not."]

Peabody, Fred. "Through the Lens: All Governments Lie." Radio West (February 1, 2017) ["we continue our Through the Lens series with Fred Peabody’s documentary film All Governments Lie. It’s inspired by the work of I.F. Stone, an investigative journalist and gadfly in the early 1950s to the `70s. Stone’s modern torchbearers—journalists like Matt Taibbi, Glenn Greenwald, Amy Goodman and others profiled in the film—produce their adversarial journalism outside mainstream media. Peabody joins us Wednesday to discuss the value of alternative news and the role of independent journalists."]

Slover, Tim. "Plan-B Theatre Company: Virtue." Radio West (February 17, 2017) ["Hildegard of Bingen was a 12th century abbess, composer, healer, and visionary. Everyone from the Pope to the lowliest novitiate believed she was in direct communication with God. But mid-life, Hildegard's visions changed, and some historians believe it was because she fell in love with another woman. The story is the basis of Utah playwright Tim Slover’s latest work, and Friday, we’re talking about this fascinating woman, and the search for balance between spirituality and the gift of love."]
