COMING UP on Media Edge:
 

Episode 488
(initially on cable access TV:
  September 13-19, 2014)

 
Segment 1: "Peak Moment"
(28 minutes)

 

Whether city folk or country folk, North Americans don't tend to know our neighbors, much less do things together. Mark Lakeman (Portland) and Brandy Gallagher (rural Vancouver Island) talk about "repairing" our isolation. How can we we reclaim our village roots - living, working and playing in the same neighborhood? Mark, founder of City Repair, helps create gathering places with projects like the famous painted street intersections. Brandy, founder of O.U.R. Ecovillage, discusses overcoming regulatory hurdles like narrow zoning laws by working with agencies to find innovative solutions.


Segment 2: "An Evening with
Rabbi Michael Lerner
"
(68 minutes)

Founder of the Network of Spiritual Progressives, Rabbi Michael Lerner spoke in Sacramento in 2012 at an event recorded by Media Edge. In his book, "Embracing Israel/Palestine", Lerner describes his views about building peace between Israel and Palestine, which he discusses at length during this presentation. Lerner is a political activist, the editor of Tikkun, a progressive Jewish interfaith magazine based in Berkeley, California, and the rabbi of Beyt Tikkun Synagogue of San Francisco. Lerner was a leader in the Berkeley student movement and the Free Speech Movement, chair of the Free Student Union, and chair from 1966-1968 of the Berkeley chapter of the Students for a Democratic Society.


Segment 3: "Documentary Film Course"
(14 minutes)

Ahmed Kamal documents the lives of his fellow students at the Independent Film & Television College in Baghdad as they try to get into classes, find the subjects for the films they want to make and deal with the difficulties
of trying to film in Iraq at the moment.  In the end the college has to close down when two people are abducted from the building and an explosion in the street below shatters all its windows.


Segment 4: "A Buffalo's Trail of Tears"
(6 minutes)

A short video about the annual hazing of the last wild and free buffalo, by the Buffalo Field Campaign.
