Nolan Higdon & Mickey Huff: United States of Distraction: Media Manipulation in Post-Truth America
The Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street, Berkeley
Presented by KPFA Radio 94.1 FM with Project Censored & City Lights presents
The role of news media in a free society is to investigate, inform, and provide a crucial check on political power. But does it actually do any of these things? Its no secret that the goal of corporate-owned media is to increase the profits of the few, not to empower the many. As a result, people are increasingly immersed in an information system structured to reinforce their social biases and market to their buying preferences.
Mickey Huff and Nolan Higdon emphasize what we can do today to restore the power of facts, truth, and fair, inclusive journalism as tools for people, to keep political and corporate power subordinate to the engaged citizenry and the common good. Ralph Nader
Dr. Nolan Higdon is a lecturer of history and media studies at California State University, East Bay, and the University of San Francisco. He is co-host of the podcast Along the Line, and author of numerous articles, blog posts, and book chapters. He is a former co-host of the Project Censored Show, and a longtime contributor to Project Censoreds annual book,
Mickey Huff is the current Director of Project Censored and president of the nonprofit Media Freedom Foundation.He has edited or co-edited ten annual volumes of Censored, and contributed numerous chapters. He is currently professor of social science and history at Diablo Valley College, where he is also co-chair of the history department.

3rd is San Francisco International South Asian Film Festival 2019

November 7-10, New People Cinema and Castro Theatre, San Francisco
November 16, Palo Alto Arts Center, Palo Alto

Come celebrate 3rd i's seventeenth annual SF International South Asian Film Festival (Bollywood and Beyond) with some of the best cinema from India, Sri Lanka, UK and the USA. This years festival lends an ear to Young voices, capturing both intergenerational relationships, and stories of youth coming-of-age in rural areas and in megacities. Humor takes centerstage in stories of stand-up comics, and in our signature shorts program which uses satire to address pressing social issues from the border wall to colorism. This years festival is brimming with cutting-edge indie narratives: from gripping and compassionate stories of addiction, to up-and-coming filmmakers of Bengali cinema and the Assamese New Wave, to a searing and masterful period drama on caste conflict from Sri Lanka. As always, California filmmakers and Womens stories shine bright! For expanded program and ticketing information, please visit: www.thirdi.org
