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: "Immigrants For Sale"
Immigrants For Sale is a ground-breaking documentary that goes inside the
private immigrant detention industry, through the lens of those most
impacted, the players behind the trade and the multi-billion dollar
profits that fuel it all.
Segment 2: "Peak Moment"
"I spent five minutes spreading the compost on the driveway, two minutes
sprinkling the seed, and maybe five minutes to harvest the whole patch. And
I had maybe twenty pounds of nutritious leafy greens." From
this spur-of-the-moment idea, plant breeder Carol Deppe spent decades finding
the most productive "eat-all greens" varieties with edible stalks. With
three or four crops a year in a bed no larger than 4x12 feet, you can
couple hundred pounds of greens. Deppe believes that this could
revolutionize nutritious food production in urban food deserts, small plots
and even commercial greens production.
Segment 3: "Over Troubled Waters"
The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the largest estuary on the west coast of
the Americas, is a national treasure being squandered by greed. In this
visually rich documentary, Ed Begley, Jr. narrates the story of the
battle being fought by the people of the Delta to protect the region they
encourage saner water policies for all of the people of California.
Segment 4: "F-35: The Jet That Ate The Pentagon"
This video, produced by Brave New Films, sheds new light on the waste and
failures of the Pentagon’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, including the
extraordinary costs of the F-35 (the most expensive weapons system
in history), critical design failings, “concurrent development,” and extreme
technical and performance issues. The video also highlights the role
political contributions given to select members of Congress by
Lockheed Martin and other defense contractors have played in keeping the F-35
off the budget chopping block.
