My Brooklyn (DVD)
1 hr. 17 min.
- Instructional Video
This disc is a recorded DVD and may not play on all DVD players or drives.
Originally produced as a motion picture in 2012.
Summary:
"My Brooklyn follows director Kelly Anderson's journey, as a Brooklyn gentrifier, to understand the forces reshaping her neighborhood. The film documents the redevelopment of Fulton Mall, a bustling African-American and Caribbean commercial district that - despite its status as the third most profitable shopping area in New York City - is maligned for its inability to appeal to the affluent residents who have come to live around it. As a hundred small businesses are replaced by high rise luxury housing and chain retail, Anderson uncovers the web of global corporations, politicians and secretive public-private partnerships that drive seemingly natural neighborhood change. The film's ultimate question is increasingly relevant on a global scale: who has a right to live in cities and determine their future?"--Publisher's website.
Credits:
Director, Kelly Anderson; producers, Allison Lirish Dean and Kelly Anderson; editor, Kathryn Barnier; photographer, Jamel Shabazz; original score, Benjamin Fries and Simon Beins.
The National Security Constitution in a Time of Terror (DVD)
- Instructional Video
2007 Kastenmeier Lecture, held November 30, 2007, at the University of Wisconsin Law School.
Summary:
Harold Koh, Dean of Yale Law School, spoke on the detrimental effects of the executive branch's effort over time to increase its national security power. He described how the impact of historical events, including Sept. 11, 2001, changed the tide of U.S. policy. He described the current administration as contributing to a shift toward a disregard of checks and balances, mainly with Supreme Court appointments, and called for a return to just policy under law. Introductory remarks were provided by Tom Petri, U.S. House of Representatives, and via a video message by Russ Feingold, U.S. Senate. Petri and Koh agreed that, above all, individual rights should be protected.
