The Passion of Chelsea Manning: Chase Madar and Noam Chomsky

Liveblog by @schock of the Starr Forum talk by Chomsky and Madar at MIT, sponsored by the MIT Center for International Studies. All errors mine!

Chomsky and Madar are introduced by John Tirman, Director of the MIT Center for International Studies. Chase Madar wrote the Passion of Bradley Manning: The Story of the Suspect Behind the Largest Security Breach in US History. He's a civil rights attorney who has written for many publications, including the Nation, the Atlantic, Le Monde, and so on. Noam Chomsky, says Tirman, needs no introduction.

From Story to Action: Liveblogging the Camden International Film Fest

Liveblog by @schock and @scrumbly1. All errors ours!

It's day two of the Camden International Film Festival's Points North Documentary Film Forum, and we're liveblogging the session "From Story to Action." From the program:

"Since the days of Grierson, documentary filmmakers have been driven by a desire to affect social change through storytelling. Today’s filmmakers have more tools at their disposal than ever before to engage audiences and close the gap between inspiration and action. In this panel, filmmakers, outreach coordinators and funders discuss ideas and strategies for using film to create meaningful social impact."
