Dear BHS Community,
The PTSA is launching a thought-provoking film series to be shared with the
Berkeley High community. The first film is being offered in conjunction with
the "Economics of Happiness" conference taking place in Berkeley on March
23-25. Then in April we are planning to show two additional films on the BHS
Campus, "Black Power Mixtape", and "Miss Representation", which will be
offered free of charge, and accompanied by speakers who will engage the
audience in discussions after the screenings.
THE ECONOMICS OF HAPPINESS describes a world moving simultaneously in two
opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue
to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the
same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies,
demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance-and, far from the old
institutions of power, they're starting to forge a very different future.
Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological
economies based on a new paradigm - an economics of localization.
Thursday March 22, 6:30-10:30pm
A double feature with Schooling The World
The Marsh Arts Center (NOT ON THE BHS CAMPUS)

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
The Black Power Mixtape examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement
in the black community and Diaspora from 1967 to 1975. The film combines
music, startling 16mm footage (lying undiscovered in the cellar of Swedish
Television for 30 years), and contemporary audio interviews from leading
African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars.
Thought-provoking, locally made film examining the relationship between the
media's portrayal of girls and women and the under-representation of women
in positions of power and influence in America. The film's motto, "You can't
be what you can't see," underscores an implicit message that young women
need and want positive role models.
DATES AND TIMES FOR THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE AND MISS REPRESENTATION WILL BE
