COMING UP on Media Edge:
 

Episode 490
(initially on cable access TV:
  September 27 - October 3, 2014)

 
Segment 1: "Peak Moment"
(28 minutes)

 

"In 160 communities in nine states, we've been passing rights-based ordinances that strip corporations of their constitutional so-called rights; that enshrine the right of a local community to govern itself by community majority; and ban specific activities which are legal but which the community considers harmful." Community Rights organizer Paul Cienfuegos notes that the laws they're passing are illegal: "They're direct frontal assaults to unjust law, which is how real social change happens," like the American revolution and anti-slavery movement. He describes two recent laws now being challenged in major lawsuits, saying organizers are positively excited about this opportunity.


Segment 2: "Carbon"
(8 minutes)

A new short film narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, "Carbon" shows how we can keep carbon in the ground through putting a price on carbon.


Segment 3: "Jerusalem...The East Side Story"
(56.5 minutes)

A feature-length documentary about Israel’s policy to gain supremacy over the City of Jerusalem and its inhabitants. It also touches on the future of the city: Jerusalem is the key to peace; without Jerusalem, there is no peace.


Segment 4: "A Candle for the Shabandar Cafe"
(23 minutes)

Founded in 1917, the Shabandar Cafe in Al Mutanabbi Street in the heart of the old centre of Baghdad, was a cultural landmark, where generations of Iraqis came to discuss and debate literature and politics - a living
repository of Iraqi intellectual history and one of the last places where people could gather to exchange ideas. Director Emad Ali had shot most of his film by the end of 2006, but in March 2007, a massive car bomb destroyed the Shabandar Cafe, all the bookshops on Al Mutanabbi Street and killed and wounded scores of people. Days later, Baghdad’s poets and artists held a wake in the ruins of the street they loved so much and Emad took a small camera and went back to film. As he was leaving he was attacked, his camera stolen and he was shot in the legs and chest, and his own story is an epilogue to his film about the Shabandar Cafe and Mutanabbi Street - before and after they were destroyed.
