CALA Documentary Flim Screening of A WAY OUT
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Made by CALA faculty member Gladys Bensimon,  A Way Out is a feature documentary that premiered at the NJ International Film Festival and is about poverty and how we in America may overcome it. The film analyzes the factors of success through the stories of three minority men from Newark, New Jersey. These men successfully beat the odds...not by luck, but rather by deliberate support and opportunities that otherwise would have left them poor, incarcerated, or even dead.

In addition to the illustrative and compelling stories, the documentary features the historic, economic and academic analysis of poverty, and the history of racism and inequality in the United States, featuring various social, political, and economic experts. This documentary was passionately endorsed by Senator Cory Booker in June 2017. RSVP at http://tinyurl.com/CALAWAYOUT

CALA FALL 2017 Film Series: SWING TIME (1936) Introduction: Eric Myers & Howard Mandelbaum
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

NYU Event Space

LIGHTS, CAMERA, DECO!: A Cinematic Celebration of Art Deco's International Influence. In conjunction with the Art Deco Society of New York. The Art Deco style arguably originated at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925, where it left  a mark on many designers including Cedric Gibbons, art director for the film Grand Hotel. The Art Deco style would appear in over 1500 films—from Metropolis to The Artist—across the following decades. Art Deco was a truly international style, influencing architecture, fashion, and the design of all objects from perfume bottles to cars. Art Deco moved away from the floral, ornamental patterns of the past to the streamlined, modern shapes of the future. At the same time it embraced and exoticized design motifs from Asia, South America, Egypt, and Africa. Art Deco’s clean and geometric lines complemented the black and white movies of the era and created enduring iconic cinematic images. Please join SPS’s Center for Applied Liberal Arts in collaboration with the Art Deco Society of New York this Fall in celebrating Art Deco’s impact on cinema around the world.

In Print: Naomi Hossain -- The Aid Lab: Understanding Bangladesh’s Unexpected Success 

 

Monday, March 27, 6.30 - 7.45 pm


Development aid often gets bad press because it is seen as ineffective in lifting countries out of poverty.  In The Aid Lab, Naomi Hossain (Institute of Development Studies, Sussex, UK) argues that aid can work, even in extremely unpromising contexts.  The Aid Lab examines the extraordinary case of Bangladesh. Dealt a weak hand in natural resources and geopolitical significance, wounded by war and famine, Bangladesh has transitioned into a canny and adaptable player in the global economy.  It pioneered the use of micro-finance and was the earliest developing country committed to addressing women’s needs as part of poverty reduction.  This is not the story of a poster child for neoliberalism, but rather of a pragmatic state selectively engaging with donors and global markets while building a social compact to mitigate vulnerability. Join John Gershman, Clinical Professor of Public Practice at NYU Wagner, for a conversation with Hossain on what other developing countries can learn from Bangladesh.
