Sat Sept 29th – “Inside Peace”

Free Screening of Inside Peace Documentary

Saturday at 7 PM
122 University Private, Ottawa, Ontario
Social Sciences building at the University of Ottawa
room FSS-1006 (on the first floor)

 

 

 

 

 

The documentary illuminates the transition that takes place within prisoners’ lives after attending a 10-week Peace Education course given at the Dominguez State Jail, San Antonio, Texas. The course seems to have a profound effect on individuals by encouraging them to de-escalate and take responsibility for their own personal situations & lives. The prisoners in the film share their insights into the social and emotional forces that sent them onto the wrong path and offer the uplifting message that everybody has the possibility to change their lives around, no matter how difficult their situation. “Inside Peace” follows several of them after their release and shows the challenges ex inmates face in their efforts to reintegrate into society.

The showing will be followed by a discussion. Our guest, hip hop artist Raphaël Desil (aka Moun Fou), will join us to share his experience of rehabilitation.

The Young Karl Marx

http://moviesin.co/watch/QvMynJv2-the-young-karl-marx.html

The early years of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Jenny Marx between Paris, Brussels, and London.

A spectre is returning to haunt the capitalist world! In the year of Karl Marx’s 200th birthday we get the timely release of a remarkable film about one of history’s foremost and complex thinkers, depicting his early activist life leading up to one of the world’s most iconic publications, The Communist Manifesto. (From the film review in People’s Voice, March 16–31, 2018.)

118 min.

Cinema Academica hosts film screenings during the academic year at the University of Ottawa on various social, political and economic issues in order to increase social consciousness and encourage activism in the community. All films are completely free of charge. All films are followed by discussion.

Parking: There is limited metered parking on campus on Séraphin-Marion (the continuation of Wilbrod west of Cumberland) and in the adjacent lot east of Tabaret Hall, and also on Louis Pasteur, between MacDonald Hall and Gendron Hall. The meters are enforced 24/7. There is also a pay-and-display lot beside Simard Hall. The best bet is on nearby streets in Sandy Hill, e.g., Henderson, where there are signs for 2 or 3 hour parking up to 7:00 p.m., unrestricted after 7:00.

 

 

 

 

Sat Sept 8th 2018 – Welcome Back! :)

Welcome to Cinema Academica for the Fall 2018 season.

The showing this week will be in Lamoureux (LMX) room 339 at 7pm.

People will have a few options for what to watch.  We will also be discussing what people are interested in seeing, having discussions about, etc.

For instance, what current events would people like to explore in a group and discuss?  Do people have good online media clips, perhaps of current news, that people would like to share and discuss, whether because it is good, important, bad, or maybe even a questionable news article of something you are interested in you would like a second opinion on?

Are there new or old documentaries you would like to see?

Have your say.

The tentative lineup for the next few weeks is:

Sat Sept 15 – a showing on the topic of Sept 11, 2001

Sat Sept 22 – ‘World Peace and other 4th Grade Achievements’; as part of peace fest, Ottawa

www.facebook.com/ottawapeacefest

Sat Sept 29 – ‘Inside Peace’ with a special host in a larger room, UOttawa FSS-1006 , as part of Ottawa Peace Fest
