“There is No Apolitical Moment” – An interview with Majority Rules director Michael Burns
MajorityRules1.jpgMichael Burns’ films are challenging. Not challenging in the respect that they’re difficult to decipher, but in that they challenge the audience to take a stand and to face serious defects in our political system. They’re not optimistic films. There’s no room for optimism when one honestly assesses the evidence in world affairs today. To present any other picture would be deeply dishonest. But there’s a critical difference between optimism and hope. Burns’ films are hopeful in that they propose that if we frankly confront the extent of the problems we face (be they America’s unfortunate two-party dominance, the White House’s pre-emptive war policy, or the systematic dismantling of any recognizable notion of democracy) then we have a chance to correct them. Without this first critical step, the kernel of hope that’s buried inside our major collective crises won’t be accessible.

GONZALES EMBARRASSED AT HARVARD REUNION
Gonzales Protest - 1 (small).JPGCambridge, Mass. – Alberto Gonzales was confronted by student protesters and forced to leave through a back door on Saturday during a visit to Harvard Law School for his 25th reunion. After two weeks clinging to save his job and defending allegations that he fired eight U.S. Attorneys for political reasons, what might have been a relaxed day of reminiscing with old classmates became instead yet another reminder that both his job and his reputation are in serious jeopardy.

History Recalls and Nothing Changes
HR Post Card jan2007.jpgFrom January to February Northeastern University hosted History Recalls, an exhibit addressing the effects of conflict and war through an international collaboration of artists.

Poverty in Boston, What Poverty?
new_orleans.jpgThat’s exactly what an editor for the business section at the Boston Globe said during class at Harvard when I proposed writing a story about the correlation between the rise in crime and poverty in our city. I was dumbfounded and almost answered, “All you have to do is look outside your window,” as I remembered the men standing day after day on the street corners looking for work at my Somerville neighborhood. Then again, I didn’t know where the editor lived and the suburbs isn’t exactly a Boston hub for the homeless. The story idea was shut down, and we both moved on with our privileged lives.
