GLOBAL WARMING: THE SIGNS AND SCIENCE features numerous science experts who
review a growing body of evidence of the grave

consequences of a changing climate, and explores how individuals, communities
and organizations across America are creating

new approaches to safeguard future generations.

The documentary also looks at evidence that human activities are provoking an
unprecedented era of atmospheric warming and

climatic events: more drought, wildfires and flooding; polar melting; more
powerful storms; and more variable weather.

Tropical diseases are moving north; childhood respiratory illnesses are
skyrocketing; and in the last three decades more than

30 diseases new to science have emerged.

SLCFC:The New Face of Africa Series
If you are born disabled in Ghana, West Africa you are likely to be poisoned, or
left to die by your family; and if you are

not poisoned or left for dead, you're likely to be hidden away in a room; and if
you're not hidden, you are destined to spend

your lifetime begging on the streets. Of the twenty million people in Ghana, two
million are disabled. This is the story of

one disabled man whose mission-and purpose- is to change all that forever. In
Emmanuel's Gift, filmmakers Lisa Lax and Nancy

Stern have uncovered a story as compelling as it is important. Narrated by Oprah
Winfrey, the film chronicles the life of

Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, a young Ghanaian man born with a severely deformed right
leg, who today, against incalculable odds, is

opening minds, hearts and doors-and effecting social and political change
throughout his country. While Emmanuel's message is

vital: people with disabilities are valuable contributors to any society, his
method is inspirational. Emmanuel begins his

quest with a bicycle ride, over 600 kilometers, across Ghana with one leg-and
continues to spread his vision with grit and

resolve. Lisa Lax and Nancy Stern have been documenting Emmanuel's plight for
over a year, having shot over 100 hours of

powerful imagery. The film includes original footage shot in Ghana, California,
Oregon and New York, as well as photographs

and other acquired film/video of Emmanuel's early years. Through it all, they
have created an intimate insight into the mind

and heart of a visionary whose unforgettable journey transcends continents and
cultures and becomes each of ours to share.

City Library Auditorium - 210 East 400 South – SLCFC: Health Series – Presented
with Friends of Great Salt Lake as part of

their 2006 Great Salt Lake Issues Forum
The next global human flu epidemic may begin with a sick duck in Vietnam's
Mekong River Delta, now the epicenter of a deadly

bird flu outbreak. The World Health Organization estimates that the H5N1 virus
-- which already has jumped species from birds

to humans -- could kill tens of millions of people worldwide. WIDE ANGLE travels
to Vietnam to investigate the threat of a

global pandemic, portraying Vietnam's response to outbreaks in its cities,
provinces and villages, where doctors,

epidemiologists and veterinarians are battling the virus. As the government
tries to contain the disease and educate its

people, there is growing evidence that the virus is evolving and already may
have begun to spread via human-to-human contact

for the first time, dramatically increasing the risk of a worldwide catastrophe.

Kent State:  The Day the War Came Home
Free Speech Zone
2144 South Highland Drive

The Kent State shootings, also known as May 4 or the Kent State Massacre,
occurred at Kent State University in the city of

Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of students by the Ohio National Guard on
Monday, May 4, 1970. The altercation killed

four students and wounded nine others.

The shootings were the culmination of four days of increasingly agitated
demonstrations by members of the student body. The

students were protesting the American invasion of Cambodia which President
Richard Nixon launched on April 25, and announced

in a television address five days later.

This documentary film includes interview with students and National Guardsmen
who were there.

May 10, Wednesday – 7PM – MO AND ME – with Salim Amin, filmmaker and Managing
Director of Camerapix and the Chairman of the

Mohamed Amin Foundation – Westminster College 1840 South 1300 East – Vieve Gore
Concert Hall SLCFC: The New Africa Series
Long acknowledged Africa's greatest photographer-cameraman, Mohamed Amin has
been photographing and filming the major events

of Africa, Asia and the Middle East since the 1950's. He is also the author and
publisher of more than forty high quality

illustrated books. He was born in Nairobi, Kenya in 1943, and was chief
executive of the Camerapix group of television and

publishing companies. He died in 1996 Salim Amin is the son of the late Mohamed
Amin, the Managing Director of Camerapix and

the Chairman of the Mohamed Amin Foundation.  Salim Amin was thrust into the
role of Managing Director of Camerapix

Publishers at the young age of 26 when in 1996 when his father died in a
hijacked Ethipoian aircraft.
No one captured Africa’s pain and passion more incisively than Mohamed Amin.  He
was the most famous photojournalist in the

world, making the news as often as he covered it.  ‘Mo’ trained his unwavering
lens on every aspect of African life, never

shying from the tragedy, never ailing to revel in the success.  Through the gaze
of his camera lens, he showed the world what

some were afraid to see and what most people wished they could ignore.

Salim held onto his father’s dreams and ideals of training and developing local
African talent to tell the African Stories

with competence.  He will introduce the film and discuss the work that he is
doing to carry on his father's vision about

media courage of and about Africa.

FREE FILM:  Shocking and Awful:A Grassroots Response to War and Occupation, Part
Free Speech Zone
2144 South Highland Drive

“Shocking and awful” is the way many people view the current situation (2004) in
Iraq and the United States. The war

continues to take its toll on Iraqi civilians, international aid workers,
journalists and U.S. troops. Here at home we are

seeing how waging a “perpetual war” is affecting our own lives as well.
