Documentary series finds new home: Wikileaks film scheduled
Submitted By Jane Bark
The Tri-City Documentary Series is pleased to announce that we are moving to new premises in Niles beginning April 9th, co-sponsoring with First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Niles Congregational United Church of Christ. We thank Rev. Jeffrey Spencer for making this possible.
Many people have asked why the film series is no longer being screened monthly. This is due to increased demand of the Fukaya Room at the Fremont Main Library. We are extremely grateful for a very successful four-year run at the library, but now it's time to move on. Niles Congregational Church has a lovely room for our use and LOTS of parking! Screenings will be on the second Saturday of each month.
Our next film will be The Story of Wikileaks:
This fascinating film about the origins of the Wikileaks organization follows an international cast of characters from Australia to Germany, Iceland and the U.S., and takes us into the server bunker in Sweden.
We learn about the early hacker life of Julian Assange, and his later decision to form an organization where whistleblowers can anonymously pass information that documents crime and immorality. His stated goal is to expose injustice, and nothing exemplifies this more than the leaked film entitled "Collateral Murder".
Discussion will follow the film.
Why not make it a day out and discover, or re-discover Niles, with its restaurants, galleries and antique shops, or perhaps take a stroll in Niles Community Park across from the Church?
