Summoned: Frances Perkins & the General Welfare – Screening + Q&A

(Open to the Public:) Screening + Q&A with the Filmaker: We’re screening a new documentary about Frances Perkins by Mick Caouette: In the depths of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt appointed Frances Perkins as the first woman on a presidential cabinet. Against overwhelming odds, she became the driving force behind Social Security, the 40-hour work week, the eight-hour day, minimum wage and unemployment compensation.

“Summoned: Frances Perkins and the General Welfare” features compelling interviews with David Brooks, Nancy Pelosi, Amy Klobuchar, Lawrence O’Donnell and others while telling Perkins’ heroic story which explores the history of women in politics, Social Security, our attitudes toward immigration, poverty, Socialism, and the role of government. Without this context, our current dialogue is ill-informed and diminished.

Presented by Mick Caouette and South Hill Films, Mr. Caouette will take questions after the screening.

John Lobell: Radical Architecture of the 60s

(Open to the Public:) The Radical Architecture of the 1960’s: a richly illustrated lecture by John Lobell, Professor of Architecture at Pratt Institute.

When one thinks of the heady days of the 1960’s, protests, music and art come to mind. But the 60’s were also a time of radical new architecture from groups like Archigram in England, Super Studio in Italy to American architects as diverse as Robert Venturi ushering in Post Modernism, and Bucky Fuller building geodetic domes.
