Health Equity Film Series: "More Than a Month" (60 minutes)

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Location: Sullivan Classroom, Med Ed 200
Description: One Man’s Quest to End Black History Month Becomes a Humorous and Provocative Look at Race in “Post-Racial” America

Should Black History Month be ended? That’s the question explored by African American filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman as he embarks on a cross-country campaign to do just that. Both amusing and thought provoking, More Than a Month examines what the treatment of history tells us about race and power in contemporary America.

The film takes the form of a road trip that begins in Washington, D.C., crisscrosses the country during Black History Month 2010, and ends with an epilogue one year later. Combining cinema verité, man-on-the-street interviews, and inspired dramatizations, the film is a first-person narrative of the filmmaker’s quest to understand the implications of Black History Month.

Health Equity Film: "You're Looking at Me Like I Live Here"

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Location: Sullivan Classroom, Med Ed 200
Description: In Danville, California, Lee Gorewitz wanders on a soul-searching odyssey through her Alzheimer’s & Dementia care unit. Confined by the limits of her physical boundaries, she scavenges for reminders of her life in the outside world. Yet her search is for more than a word, or a memory, or a familiar face. It is a quest for understanding.

A total immersion into the fragmented day-to-day experience of mental illness, You're Looking at Me Like I Live Here and I Don't is the first Alzheimer's documentary filmed exclusively in an Alzheimer’s & Dementia care unit, and the first told from the perspective of someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The film reveals Lee's penetrating ruminations and charismatic vitality, challenging our preconceptions of illness and aging. Here is the journey of a woman who will not let us forget her – even as she struggles to remember her self.

A short discussion will follow the film. For more information, call 656-2267.
