AS GOES JANESVILLE by Brad Lichtenstein
America's middle class is dwindling, and the debate over how to save it is nowhere fiercer than in the normally tranquil state of Wisconsin. In Janesville, as jobs disappear and families are stretched to their breaking point, citizens and politicians are embroiled in an ideological battle about how to turn things around.
The Independent Television Service (ITVS), PBS SoCal (KOCE-TV) and Soka University of America are pleased to announce the fourth year of the Community Cinema series, which began in September 2012. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of eight documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Community Cinema, in partnership with Soka University’s Humanities Program and Student Affairs, screens films monthly from September through May.
After the screenings, Community Cinema features panel discussions with community-based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help our students and community learn more about the issues and get involved. Faculty members are encouraged to incorporate these films in their class curricula.
