Lecture/Film Tonight: Stolen Childhoods

Filmmakers Len Morris and Robin Romano will discuss child labor around the globe tonight at 7.30 pm in Memorial Hall on the UNC campus. This lecture is free, open to the public, and will include never before seen footage of the conditions in which children labor so the rest of us can have carpets, coffee, and--in the US--fruits and vegetables. These are award-winning filmmakers doing front-line activism--worth the trip in to town.

You can meet the filmmakers at a reception celebrating Robin Romano's photographs this afternoon at 4 pm; room 039, the James M. Johnston Center for Undergraduate Excellence in Graham Memorial.



Apparently the Stolen Childhoods feature will not be shown tonight but will be opening at the Chelsea this weekend.

I don't usually post much but interesting anecdote: one of my classes (Movie Criticism) had a showing of this film and, later, a discussion with Len. The guy really knew his stuff, has spent years researching this by means of first-hand experience. Powerful film -- go see it if you get the chance.
