FREE PRESS FREE MOVIE – THE MOVIE CHANGED!

Tuesday, June 26, 7:30pm
Drexel Theater, 2254 E. Main St., Bexley

Contested Streets explores the history of 20th Century transportation in America and how we got into the auto-supreme society with its lack of transportation options. The movie takes us to the European cities of Copenhagen, Paris and London and shows the steps they have taken to make their cities more multimodal. 57 minutes
Moving Beyond the Automobile is a series of segments on new and more progressive policies and transportation elements that are happening which are making our cities easier to navigate. These include bus rapid transit, highway removal, transit-oriented development, traffic calming and more. 39 minutes
Ben Wickizer, Sierra Club staff person who works on transportation issues, will be there to lead a discussion afterwards. The Sierra Club will have postcards for people to sign and a sheet where people can sign up to get more information on transportation issues, plus literature.

Free Press FREE Movie: “War in the Mind” Tuesday, February 28 and Discussion

Tuesday, February 28, 2012• 7:30pm – 9:00pm – followed by discussion.
Director Judy Jackson has taken a tough emotional journey in this penetrating study of PTSD and our young war veterans. It’s called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: the unending echo of battle etched in the brain may affect up to 15% of soldiers by some estimates. It can destroy families, and can leave its sufferers unable to work, addiction addled and changed. All the soldiers who bravely speak out in this film are doing so because they want us to understand what they endure. They also want to reach out to others who are suffering in silence, and may feel the only way of ending their pain is ending their lives. War in the Mind also investigates the issue of soldier suicide. Statistics from past and present wars tell the sad story of the magnitude of this problem. Families who have felt invisible, their sons’ stories unacknowledged, tell of the impact of their loss.
