4th Tuesday Films presents:

Google and the World Brain

 

 
In 1937, writer H.G. Wells imagined a "World Brain" containing all of the world's knowledge; 70 years later, Google set about realizing Wells’ vision while coming up against many obstacles. The film tells about the project and struggles over intellectual property and access to human knowledge and broader themes of freedom and surveillance.

Segment 1: "Deport Hate"
(10 minutes)
 
Our current immigration system is broken. Deportations are at a record high, families are being separated, immigrant workers exploited, human lives are being lost at the border, there is rampant persecution and discrimination of immigrants and a continuation in the perpetuation of negative stereotypes and the criminalization of migration.
How did we get here? How did we sacrifice basic human and civil rights in the name of political posturing, agendas and money interests? What can we do to reverse this?


Segment 2: "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism"
(77.5 minutes)

"Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism" is a 2004 documentary film by filmmaker Robert Greenwald that criticizes the Fox News Channel and its owner, Rupert Murdoch, claiming that the channel is used to promote and
advocate right-wing views. The film says this pervasive bias contradicts the channel's claim of being "Fair and Balanced".


Segment 3: "Outfoxed Effect --
Ten Years Later"
(13 minutes)
 
Ten years after the film “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism” was released, “Outfoxed Effect” looks back in time and shows how things have not really changed.


Segment 4: "Omar is My Friend"
(15 minutes)
 
A student at Baghdad University works as a taxi driver to support his wife and four daughters. As he negotiates his clapped out taxi around checkpoints, tanks and traffic jams, he talks about work, lack of petroleum, electricity, having daughters in a male-dominated society, his personal aspirations and those of his society.
