Upside/Down - Film and Discussion Series

On the third Friday in January, February, and March of 2009, we'll be hosting screenings of documentaries of a global perspective at Main & Mocha. Discussions will be led by faculty members of Bryan and Covenant Colleges, as well as UTC.

One Day in September
Friday, January 23, 7:00 PM

In 1972 the PLO attacked the Israeli wrestling team during the Olympic Games in Munich. This documentary traces those events, which comprised one of the first major instances of international terrorism. One of the surviving team members is interviewed, and the roots of global terrorism and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict are examined.

Discussion led by Chris Clark of Bryan College.

Black Gold
Friday, February 20, 7:00 PM

This award-winning documentary portrays the international coffee trade, and examines the role trade plays in the relationship between the Western world and the countries that feed it. A must-see for anyone interested in issues surrounding fair trade and free trade, as well as international development.

Discussion led by Cliff Foreman of Covenant College.

In This World
Friday, March 20, 7:00 PM

A heralded docudrama that tells the story of 2 Afghani youths who try to smuggle themselves out of their home country for a new life in the UK. Their dangerous journey highlights struggles faced by many individuals living in the developing world.

Discussion led by Karen Henderson of UTC.

All screenings will take place at Main & Mocha, at the corner of Main St. and Market St. on Chattanooga's Southside.
