4th Tuesday Films presents:
Wisconsin was a testing ground for the nation in 2011 as big money attempted to
undo basic workers' rights when Republican Governor Scott Walker suddenly
stripped collective bargaining power from the state's public employees. Wisconsin Rising catapults
the viewer into the days, weeks, and months when Wisconsinites fought back
against power, authority, and injustice. Republican Senators attempt to vote on
the bill with no public notice. Footage shows Republican Senators fleeing the
state capitol on a secret shuttle as thousands of Wisconsinites fill the State
House and Capitol grounds in protest. After collecting more than one million
signatures, the people attempt to recall Scott Walker. What actions do the
people of Wisconsin take and what can the rest of America learn from their

Segment 1: "Heidi Boghosian on Privatized Security"
The CIA, NSA and the Pentagon rely on outside contractors to do much of their
work, but what if big corporations could use them as well to spy on
activists opposed to their actions? Corporations aren’t bound by
the constitution like government agencies and therefore aren’t required to
honor the same rules when it comes to surveillance. How will free speech
suffer if corporations can ally themselves with government spy agencies and
private security firms to intimidate and silence those who question them?
Segment 2: "James Bamford on the NSA"
The disclosures about the NSA’s secret surveillance programs shocked the
nation. But how did the NSA get so powerful in the first place? The NSA
began in absolute secrecy and has remained that way most of its life. How does an institution like this exist within the framework of an open society,
and is it a threat to the very values it claims to be protecting?
Segment 3: "Stephen Kinzer on Regime Changes"
The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan are fresh in our memories. However,
the list doesn’t end there. Invasions and overthrows are more common than we
think, stretching from Panama to Kosovo. The United States has long held
the view that the world is a mess and we need to “fix it.” But do we really
know what’s best for the rest of the world, or even have the means to change
Segment 4: "The Great Divide with Joseph Stiglitz and Robert Reich"
Economist Joseph Stiglitz and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich reminisce
about opposing “corporate welfare” during their days in the Clinton
Administration and talk here about problematic trade deals,
inequality and Stiglitz’s new book, “The Great Divide: Unequal
Societies and What We Can Do About Them.” Recorded at UC Berkeley on April
Segment 5: "TED Talks: Bryan Stevenson"
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.
