BUY TICKETS HERE  We are very excited to present local filmmaker Chris Szwedo's acclaimed 2013 documentary EYE ON THE 60'S: THE ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHY OF ROWLAND SCHERMAN. This film is an authentic piece of American history - an intimate portrait of former LIFE photographer Rowland Scherman and how his photographic eye captured the essence of America's most remakable decade. Experience candid recollections with seldom seen moments of major celebrities, politicians, and remarkable events. Follow the path of a self-driven man who became the first Peace Corps photographer, an insider to the Kennedy and Shriver families, and who created an astounding record of The March on Washington. EYE ON THE 60'S is the story of a man that despite technological change and the great passage of time, moves in a space of peace, humor, and hope...while remaining forever driven by the need to create. Legendary journalist Richard B. Stolley calls EYE ON THE 60's "An absolutely wonderful, loving and astute work". Filmmaker Chris Szwedo will be present to discuss the film. Massachusetts-based Chris Szwedo has years of experience in creating special interest, corporate, and broadcast documentaries. He has traveled extensively and produced films on multiple subjects for clients in art, energy, auto sports history, nature, and business.

Local Lens Series: The Refuge Media Project

Saturday, June 14th, 2014 7:30 pm
$10 - Followed by discussion with filmmaker Ben Achtenberg
“More than one million refugees have come to the US, fleeing torture and political violence,” begins REFUGE...CARING FOR SURVIVORS OF TORTURE, an outstanding new documentary from the Refuge Media Project. The vast numbers are staggering, but what makes a greater impression in this stand-out documentary are the small, individual stories from survivors and those who offer them care and support as they resettle in the US. They come here from all parts of the world — some legally, some undocumented, some with families and some very much alone. They live in major American cities and in small towns. Some survivors bear visible scars, but many more have been wounded in ways that remain hidden. Advocates for torture survivors, dedicated healthcare and social service professionals, and hundreds of citizen volunteers have united to create programs throughout the country that provide care and support to survivors who have come here to make new lives. Based on interviews with dozens of survivors, and with the professionals and volunteers who are helping them to heal, this film is a tribute to their work, and a call to action. This wonderful film offers a unique perspective into the world of torture survivors, their experiences and reservations opening up, and into the world of the care-givers, as they approach the formidable task of helping them recover their dignity and life. Filmmaker Ben Achtenberg of the Refuge Media Project will be present to discuss the film. Please visit www.refugemediaproject.org for more information.
