Allen Mondells’ WAGING PEACE world premiere June 21

Allen Mondell’s WAGING PEACE: The Peace Corps Experience 
World Premiere on June 21, 2012

Dallas, Texas-May 21, 2012- Award-winning filmmaker Allen Mondell’s new film WAGING PEACE: The Peace Corps Experience was inspired by his two years teaching in West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer. He also co-produced and directed the films for The Sixth Floor Museum on the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.
Co-presented by The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, the North Texas Peace Corps Association, Southern Methodist University Office of the Provost and Media Projects, Inc., WAGING PEACE: The Peace Corp Experience honors and celebrates the tradition of volunteerism and public service in the United States. 

The premiere, on June 21, 2012 in the James E. Collin’s Center on the SMU campus starts, at 6:15 p.m. with a reception catered by Gil’s Elegant Catering. The screening, followed by a panel discussion, begins at 7:00 p.m. The Center is located at 3150 Binkley Avenue with free parking in the garage across the street. Tickets are $30 and are available at http://wagingpeacefilm-es2.eventbrite.com/?srnk=2vff . A portion of the proceeds from the film will benefit Peace Corps Partnerships projects around the world.

One of the most important legacies of President John F. Kennedy was the Peace Corps. His desire was to involve Americans more actively in the causes of peace, world development, and freedom. Since 1961, more than 200,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have spent two years away from home in 139 countries, sharing their skills with others. Not only did they change the lives of those they served, the volunteers themselves were forever changed and went one step further – addressing the needs in their local communities today. 
WAGING PEACE: The Peace Corps Experience interweaves letters, journals, blogs and emails written by Volunteers while in their host countries with profiles of four former Volunteers whose work in 2012 reflects the same spirit and resolve they brought to their service in the Peace Corps. The writing will capture the broad range of observations and feelings while on the job. They’ll address such issues and situations as adjusting to a new culture, customs, jobs, crime, education, food, contributions, health, humor, politics, sexism, war, reflections and culture shock.
Corporate sponsors are KD College, Gold Metal Recyclers and Post Asylum with the Dallas Producers Association as a community partner.

Ramino Burr lecture May 24

The LCC Lectures Series continues on May 24, 2012

 

 

WHO:                     Ramiro Burr is an freelance music reporter, columnist, book author and top blogger covering rock/pop/country/Latin music. He is also an author, a Billboard correspondent and a free-lance music writer who has been published by Pulse, Rhythm Music, Cashbox, Latina, Performance and New Country Music magazines, as well as the Houston Chronicle and Austin Chronicle newspapers. His reviews have also appeared at Billboard.com, Amazon.com andBarnesandnoble.com.

Through his experience, Burr has become a professional speaker whose insight and analysis of music, journalism, culture and the arts has been sought by colleges and civic groups including the Smithsonian Institution, Bowling Green University, University of Texas, the University of Houston, Texas A&M, DePaul, Southwest Texas State, Trinity, St. Marys and Rice universities and LULAC. In 2000, Burr was named the Speaker of the Year for the Hearst/Express-News volunteer corp. His provocative talks cover the urgency of literacy, the importance of the arts, the purpose of music, the politics of modern journalism and American pop culture. His insider’s view provides incisive, sometimes hard-hitting, but always amusing perspectives that challenge universal truths with philosophical questions.                                   

WHAT:                         Ramiro Burr continues the LCC Lecture Series with a detailed look into the rising power of reggaeton as a musical genre. Fusing reggae, cumbia, dancehall and urban rap, reggaeton is at once familiar and yet radically new, becoming more common and simultaneously more controversial. Discussion and questions-and-answers will follow he lecture.
