6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Center for Applied Liberal Arts at the NYU School of Professional Studies presents: "ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?" A FOREIGN FILM SERIES. Italian director Federico Fellini once said, “A different language is a different vision of life.” Whether in Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, or Mandarin, the alchemy of cinema’s words and images expose often very different, yet occasionally jarringly similar, visions of our longing to be understood. In this film series we ask, “Are you talking to me?” to situate ourselves in the expanding world of voices and images. Explore different worlds and languages through films, including Babel (Mexico), Central Station (Brazil), Aftershock (China), West Beirut (Lebanon), The Hunt (Denmark), and Departures (Japan). Attend film screenings introduced by NYUSPS instructors.  The following afternoon, continue the discussion in a class at NYUSPS’s Midtown Center. Tuition covers attending class discussions.

Screenings are Mondays at 6:00pm at the National Opera Center at 330 7th Avenue, (between 28th and 29th Streets) Manhattan.

Course dates: 02/08/2016 - 04/26/2016

If  you only wish to attend the evening film screenings, they are free and open to the public (RSVP Required).

Please note: an opening reception will immediately follow the screening of the first film on February 8th and a closing reception will be held after the last screening on April 25th

Fueling our Future: North American Energy Landscapes 2016 and Beyond
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM


Fueling our Future: The Geopolitics and Economics of Energy in the 21st Century

With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics? Join CGA clinical associate professor and academic chair Carolyn Kissane with experts in the field to discuss the changing landscape of global energy: its potential, challenges, and impact on how we live today.

North American Energy Landscapes 2016 and Beyond

Co-sponsored by the Canadian and Mexican Consulates General in New York

2015 and 2016 will be recognized as pivotal years for North American energy. Canada elected a new Prime Minister, and the U.S. is set to go to the polls in the fall of 2016 to elect a new president. Mexico unleashed it most aggressive reform agenda for the oil, gas and power industries, allowing national and international private investments in the previously nationalized sectors. As the U.S., Canada and Mexico move forward on action agreed upon at the Paris Climate Conference, how will North America plan to collaborate in a changing energy market? What action can be expected in President Obama's final year in office, and how will recent elections in Canada and energy reforms in Mexico affect energy policy throughout the region?
