4th Tuesday Films presents:

Utopia

 

 
This film by John Pilger investigates the oldest continuous human culture, its suppressed colonial past and rapacious present. Utopia reveals that apartheid is deep within Australia's past and present and that Aboriginal people are still living in abject poverty, with a low life expectancy, and disproportionately high rate of deaths in police custody. This story is revealed against the backdrop of the area's boom in mineral wealth.

 Segment 1: "Peak Moment"
(28 minutes)
 

Food entrepreneurs at Kirsten K. Shockey and Christopher Shockey encourage the cultivation of fermented food -- not only because it's healthy, but for the rich diversity of flavors. They show how easy it is to make sauerkraut:
slice and salt cabbage, scrunch it to get brine, press into a jar, weight it down, let it sit for a few days.
The Peak Moment team taste-tasted several of these live raw foods whose recipes are in their colorfully photographed book Fermented Vegetables: Creative recipes for fermenting 64 vegetables and herbs in krauts, kimchis, brined pickles, chutneys, relishes and pastes.


Segment 2: "TED Talks: Bryan Stevenson"
(23 minutes)
 
In an engaging and personal talk -- with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks -- human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.


Segment 3: "Why Are We Using Prisons to Treat Mental Illness?"
(8 minutes)
 
Instead of helping the mentally ill, police often put them behind bars. See how one police department is making a positive difference. It’s simple. Diversion programs work better than incarceration – for everyone. In cities like Seattle, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City, we see that successful solutions are a viable option to help end serious social problems. These services alter the course of people’s lives in a positive way and save taxpayers huge amounts of money. We cannot continue to isolate and imprison people who suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, or homelessness. We must treat them with compassion and care to better serve our communities and
our pocketbooks.


Segment 4: "Koch Brothers Exposed:
2014 Edition"
(56 minutes)
 
This documentary shines a light on billionaires David and Charles Koch, who were handed the ability to buy our democracy in the form of giant checks to the House, Senate, and soon, possibly even the Presidency.  It investigates where their money went and who their money hurt during the process leading up to the 2014 elections.
