Four Lakeland faculty members have been facilitators as part of the 10th annual John Michael Kohler Arts Center Community Cinema series.
Don Francis, professor of sociology and nonprofit organization management, will facilitate the discussion on Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. for the documentary, “American Denial.” The film is about the unconscious biases and concepts of equality and justice in race and class in today’s world. The screening, held at the JMK Arts Center, is free and open to the public.
Earlier presenters included:
Jodie Liedke, assistant professor of composition, facilitated the discussion for the film “Women in Comedy” in October, which dealt with the advancement of women in the world of comedy.
Richard Lemke, assistant professor of criminal justice, served as the facilitator at “Evolution of a Criminal” in October, which told a personal story of a man and his life as a teenage bank robber.
Krista Feinberg, associate professor of history, participated in the showing of the documentary, “A Path Appears: From the Creators of Half the Sky,” early this January. The film was an investigation of domestic crimes and adversity faced by women and children around the world.
The Community Cinema is an inspiring, educational series of documentaries that deal with a wide variety of social issues. The films are hand selected by the makers of Independent Lens, an Emmy Award-winning series. After each film has been viewed, community members are encouraged to participate in a facilitated discussion about the issues addressed in the film, in order to find solutions to problems raised.
