80s Arthouse Movies: True Love
 
Storrs Library will be showing films of the Reagan era that were off-beat and yet showcased directors that later went on to great acclaim, from Gus Van Sant to Spike Lee to Nancy Savoca. Come see what was playing at your art house cinemas in the 1980s while Top Gun and Rambo were being shown at the new "multiplexs."
 
December 4 we will be viewing "True Love," a movie that "plunges into the middle of the preparations for a marriage and shows us a man and woman being swept toward matrimony by a tide of relatives, friends, traditions and plans - even though they probably shouldn't get married at all. It's a comedy about uneasiness; nearly everyone in the film knows, in one way or another, that the marriage is a bad idea, but once events are set into motion nothing can stop them." - Roger Ebert

Great Decisions
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

By Karen Jacobsen

Today, no countries have open borders. Every state in today’s global system has its own laws and policies about who is permitted to cross its borders, and how they will do so. Who determines whether someone is a refugee or a migrant? How have different countries, including the United States, reacted to migration? How effective are the international laws, policies and organizations that have evolved to assist and protect refugees and migrants?

Great Decisions
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

By Lawrence G. Potter

As the presidency of Donald J. Trump passes the halfway point, the Middle East remains a region in turmoil. The Trump administration has aligned itself with strongmen in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, which along with Israel have a common goal of frustrating Iranian expansion. What will be the fallout from policy reversals such as withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear accord and moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem? Does the United States see a path forward in troubled states such as Syria, Yemen, Libya and Iraq? Is the United States headed toward war with Iran?

Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them.  The President has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021, the first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, and President Trump has decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran.  To what degree should past nuclear talks guide future U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations?  Can the art of the deal apply to stabilizing our nuclear future?

Great Decisions
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

By James Kirchick

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States.

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

April is Distracted Driving Awareness month. Join producer, director, and writer Jennifer Boyd for a screening of her new documentary 3 Seconds Behind the Wheel and a post-film discussion with the filmmaker. This new documentary follows the lives of eight drivers over 6 months using in-car cameras and tracking technology to monitor the often hidden behavior of distracted drivers. Why three seconds? That's how long it takes to drive across a football field, send a message or choose a song.

Great Decisions
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

By Jeremy Haft

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade.  These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s.  Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China.  What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices?  There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.

Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Longmeadow Historical Society Longmeadow Historical Society and Storrs Library present author Barbara Berenson. Few know Massachusetts was at the center of the revolutionary struggle for woman suffrage. A battle waged over historical memory obscured the state’s role—until now.  Author Barbara Berenson gives the state's revolutionary reformers the attention they deserve in this compelling and engaging story.  "In her accessible history, Berenson focuses her spotlight on Bay State women who catalyzed the effort to gain women's right to vote on a local and national level... The book makes a case for determination, perseverance, and patience to bring about necessary change." Boston Globe, 2018

Cyber conflict is a new and continually developing threat, which can include foreign interference in elections, industrial sabotage and attacks on infrastructure. Russia has been accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential elections in the United States and China is highly committed to using cyberspace as a tool of national policy. Dealing with cyber conflict will require new ways of looking at 21st century warfare. Is the United States prepared to respond to such threats?

During the Trump administration, the usual ways of conducting diplomacy have been upended. Many positions in the State Department have never been filled, and meetings with foreign leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin have been undertaken with little advance planning. What effect are these changes having now, and how will they affect ongoing relationships between the United States and its allies and adversaries?
