Award-winning filmmaker and IPS Senior Fellow Saul Landau has used the medium of film for over 40 years to move people to action on pressing domestic and global issues. His films have brought to life the turbulent antiwar protests of the 1960s, the life and words of world leaders including Fidel Castro and Dr. Salvador Allende, the effects of low-level radiation on residents of Utah and Arizona, and the negative impact of foreign investments on Mexico’s culture.
With the accessibility and low cost of technologies such as flip cameras and video phones, should video be a tool used by all activists? If so, how do we use it wisely and effectively? What are the keys to effecting change through a visual medium? Saul Landau will show brief clips of some of his films and challenge us to make video a powerful part of our toolkit for change.
Please attend and bring any friends or family who would be interested in hearing from an internationally recognized scholar and filmmaker whose films continue to reverberate around the world.
