PANEL Is the University Killing Free Speech? - Ted Balaker, Ari Cohn, Stephen Cox, Lou Perez; Claudia Murray, mod.
Rob Montz, dir. (14 min) Part 1 (Brown University) Wednesday 1:45 pm; Thursday 9:00 am; Part 2 (Yale University) Thursday 9:30 am coffee break

Around the country, college students are silencing speakers in the name of safe spaces, prompting controversy over whether certain topics are too sensitive to debate on campus or whether the university is even the most important place to debate them. In We the Internet TV's first mini-documentary, SILENCE U, filmmaker Rob Montz visits his alma mater, Brown University, to find out what happened to free speech and debate on campus. Montz interviews Brown University students, administrators, and Professor Glenn Loury as he examines the controversial actions of Brown University President Christina Paxson and ProfessorTricia Rose in an effort to answer one key question: Is the "heckler's vote" a valid exercise of free speech or simply a way of censoring others and ostracizing legitimate but unpopular perspective through mob pressure?

Panel: "Is the University Killing Free Speech?" Ted Balaker, Ari Cohn, Lou Perez; Claudia Murray, mod.

Joe and Amy Buckley live in a small working class neighborhood with their seven-year-old daughter, Lisa. When Amy is diagnosed with advanced cancer, Joe begins to buy medical marijuana to help her cope. When they discover how effective the marijuana is for Amy’s cancer, they begin to make weed brownies and distribute them to other families in need of an alternative way to alleviate the suffering. One night, a stranger breaks into their house to steal the drugs. Terrified, seven-year-old Lisa makes a call to 911. She doesn’t know that phone call will be the worst mistake of her life. Lisa’s family is torn apart and, twenty years later, that night still haunts her, in the important film, A LIFETIME LATER.

Produced by Martin Scorsese's longtime producer Barbara De Fina and directed by award-winning director Janek Ambros, MAY FIFTEENTH IN PARIS metaphorically compares the populist protest of 1848 with the populist election of Donald Trump in 2016.
