The Columbus International Film + Video Festival presents:

Which Way Home
Friday, November 19 · 8:00pm – 9:30pm
Canzani Center, Columbus College of Art & Design
60 Cleveland Ave (just south of the giant ART)
Columbus, OH 43215

Best Of Festival and Academy Award Nominated Film, Which Way Home is an amazing journey into the other side of illegal immigration. As the United States continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico, Which Way Home shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States.
The film follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a freight train they call “The Beast.” Director Rebecca Cammisa (Sister Helen) tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year-old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota, and Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center, and focuses on Kevin, a canny, streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow.
They are the ones you never hear about – the invisible ones.

Parking is free in CCAD lots.
Admission is just $5 (free for students and CIF+VF members).

Percy Schmeiser: David Versus Monsanto
Sunday, November 21 · 4:30pm – 6:00pm
Gateway Film Center
1550 North High Street
Columbus, OH

Imagine that a storm blows across your garden – and that now, without your knowledge and without your consent, foreign and genetically-manipulated seeds are in your vegetable patch which you have nourished and maintained for over 50 years. A few days later, representatives of a large multi-national corporation secretly visit your home, only to return later and demand that you surrender all your vegetables and seeds. Then, they file a lawsuit against you for the illegal use of patented and genetically-modified seeds that you never planted or used.

… and what’s more — the court rules in favor of the corporation!

Yet, you still fight back….

Admission is just $5. To buy tickets on line:

The fabulous folks from Brothers Drake Meadery will be at the Gateway doing a mead tasting before the film. Mead starts at 3.30, movie at 4.30. Come early and party with us!

Next Concert: George Delancey Quintet, Friday March 12th

Join Becky Ogden and a cozy crowd for BUNGALOW JAZZ, an occasional series of combo jazz performances in the intimacy and warmth of Becky’s unique East Columbus home.

Becky’s big old 1910 bungalow sits on an acre ravine lot on East Fifth Avenue (it’s a little hard to find: See the directions!) Deeply connected to Columbus’s jazz community, Becky has long opened her house for friendly musical gatherings. Since closing her Columbus Music Hall, she still sees the need for venues where musicians and their audiences can mingles. Hence, Bungalow Jazz, the casual “house concert” venue.

The fabulous seven-foot Mason Hamlin piano sits in the living room, waiting for artists like Mark Flugge to

bring out its warm and beautiful sound. After a post-jazz festival session, Wes “Warmdaddy” Anderson said, “I LOVE this room!”

The combined first-floor space seats about fifty people with overflow in the dining room (home to the English pub bar familiar to denizens of the Firehouse).

Every event is BYOB, with free snacks, desserts, soft drinks and coffee furnished by your hostess. BYO goodies too, if you want to contribute to the munchies.

And by all means, bring your own children: The atmosphere is family-style and welcoming.
