BrainPicturewashing of My Dad
Documentary byJen Senko
 
As filmmaker, Jen Senko, tries to understand the transformation of her father from a non-political, life-long Democrat to an angry, Right-Wing fanatic, she uncovers the forcs behind the media that changed him completely: a plan by Roger Ailes under Nixon for a media takeover by the GOP, The Powell Memo urging business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion, especially the universities, the media and the courts, and under Reagan, the dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine. 

As her journey continues, we discover that her father is part of a much broader demographic, and that the story is one that affects us all. 

Through interviews with media luminaries, cognitive linguists, grassroots activist groups, "Brainwashing" unravels the plan to shift the country to the Right over the last 30 years, largely through media manipulation.  The result has lead to fewer voices, less diversity of opinion, massive international misinformation and greater division of our country. 

This documentary will shine a light on how it happened (and is still happening) and lead to questions about who owns the airwaves, what rights we have as listeners/watchers and what responsibility does our government have to keep the airwaves truly fiar, accurate and accountable to the truth.

Q & A session follows the screening with Jen Senko, producer of The Brainwashing of My Dad

Braining of My Dad
Documentary by Jen Senko

The United States pays nearly twice as much for healthcare as any other industrialized nation, yet it still does not provide care for all of its citizens.  While the Affordable Care Act has helped some people, many of us are feeling the pinch of rising costs and narrowing networks.  Polls how that 58% of Americans favor a national publicly funded healthcare program.  So why has the U.S. Congress not yet passed - or even considered - such a plan?  This documentary delves into what single payer healthcare is, how it saves money, and what behind-the-scenes heroes are doing toclear the fog of misperception that keeps us from moving forward.

Q & A session follows the screening with Dr. Paul Gorman of Mad As Hell Doctors and a member of Physicians for a National Health Program and  Barbara Council from Health Care for All Oregon. 

Date/Time:  Friday, January 13, 2017.  Doors open at 6:30; event starts at 7 PM.
Location:  Eliot Chapel, First Unitarian Church, SW 12th and Salmon
Admission:  Donation requested: $5-20; however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
