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"
(33 minutes)
 
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"
(27 minutes)

 

"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 produce a
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"
(45 minutes)
 

 
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 love and
encourage saner water policies for all of the people of California.


Segment 4: "F-35: The Jet That Ate The Pentagon"
(8 minutes)
 
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.
