TheConversation.org

TheConversation.org



Take a ride with filmmaker Suzanne Taylor as she engages a fascinating subculture of artists, educators, geometers, philosophers, and farmers, enthralled by the mystery of crop circles. For twenty years, Taylor has been part of a lively international community that gathers in England every summer to study and document circle developments. WHAT ON EARTH? tracks her interactions with these “croppies,” as they go circle chasing, pore over circle analysis, and share why they keep coming back for more.

Dubbed “crop circles” when the earliest shapes were in circular form, these mostly geometric patterns—some as big as two football fields—are flattened into crop fields, usually during the night. Plants being bent and not broken, biological changes to plants and chemical changes to soil, failure of electromagnetic equipment, and even physical healings inside the circles are presented as defying explanation.

Captivating for its gorgeous photography of the glyphs, WHAT ON EARTH? was shot in Southern England, a landscape dotted with ruins like Stonehenge and Avebury, where the ancients performed sacred rituals. This is the hotbed of circle activity: thousands have appeared during the last thirty years, with evidence of the first occurrence dating from the 17th century. Lest we tie this phenomenon solely to England, which has the highest concentration of circles, the film shows they have cropped up in some forty other countries, including the United States.

In her breezy, inviting style, Taylor draws out croppies who have the best stories to tell. Their conversations take place in picturesque settings: charming farmhouses, ancient stone circles, medieval churches and graveyards, and, of course, inside the awesome crop circles themselves.

In 1991, in a press release that was picked up around the world, two farmers, still remembered simply as Doug and Dave, claimed to be the lone creators of the English crop formations. The film exposes their subterfuge and calls into question the veracity of copy-cat hoaxers who followed in their footsteps. Taylor’s approach, however, is not to look for the source of the circles, but to engage and document a culture that is riveted by a conviction that this land art is coming from non-human intelligent life.

In her film, the crop circle community contends that the acknowledgment of visitation from elsewhere could give rise to a new era when our penchant for war and our insatiable materialism will be replaced by compassionate concern for one another. “Perhaps if we knew we weren’t the only intelligent beings in the universe,” says Taylor, “it would humble us and unite us.” As one of the subjects in her film says, “That could be what saves this civilization.”

Shameless

Frank Gallagher is the proud single dad of six smart, spirited and independent kids, who without him would be... perhaps better off. The brilliant William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum star in this wildly engaging and fearlessly twisted new Showtime Original Series. The Gallaghers may not have much in the way of money or rules, but they know who they are — and they're absolutely, wildly, unapologetically SHAMELESS.

Made in Dagenham

The film stars the award winning Sally Hawkins as Rita O’Grady who is the catalyst for the 1968 Ford Dagenham strike by 187 sewing machinists which led to the advent of the Equal Pay Act. Working in extremely impoverished conditions and for long arduous hours, the women at the Ford Dagenham plant finally lay down their tools when they are reclassified as “unskilled”. With humour, common sense and courage they take on their corporate paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the government itself. The leader of the women’s struggle is fast-talking, no nonsense Rita whose fiery temper and occasionally hilarious unpredictability proves to be a match for any of her male opponents, and is echoed by Barbara Castle's struggle in the male-dominated House of Commons.

The Grace Card

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith. ... It is the gift of God." Ephesians 2:8 (NIV) The Grace Card Witness the Power of Forgiveness Everything can change in an instant ... and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God ... and just about everyone else. Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force-who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man. Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences-especially the most obvious one? The worst prison is the one we make for ourselves. Witness redemption by extending The Grace Card ... and never underestimate the power of forgiveness. This screening is for heads of Ministries only.

Waiting for Superman.

For a nation that proudly declared it would leave no child behind, America continues to do so at alarming rates. Despite increased spending and politicians’ promises, our buckling public—education system, once the best in the world, routinely forsakes the education of millions of children. Oscar®—winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) reminds us that education “statistics” have names: Anthony, Francisco, Bianca, Daisy, and Emily, whose stories make up the engrossing foundation of WAITING FOR “SUPERMAN.” As he follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth, Guggenheim undertakes an exhaustive review of public education, surveying “drop—out factories” and “academic sinkholes,” methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems. However, embracing the belief that good teachers make good schools, Guggenheim offers hope by exploring innovative approaches taken by education reformers and charter schools that have—in reshaping the culture—refused to leave their students behind.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed

Two men - one in his twenties, the other nearer forty, both intensely focused on the task at hand - line the inside of a transit van with plastic. Shopping, they buy a drill, a mattress and other supplies. In a small flat they assemble a bed for the mattress and staple foam insulation and board to the walls and windows of a bedroom. Then, their meticulous preparations complete, they kidnap a young woman. They drag her from the street into the back of the van and, with a bag over her head and ball gag in her mouth, take her back to the flat, tying her to the bed in the room they have converted into a prison cell.
