Daddy Don't Go (documentary film)

Hawthorne Library
02/09/2018
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

2015 / USA / English / documentary / 98 min.
“Daddy Don’t Go” captures two years in the lives of four disadvantaged fathers in New York City as they fight to defy the odds against them. And the odds are real - men living in poverty are more than twice as likely to become absent fathers than their middle-class peers (U.S. Census Bureau).
“Daddy Don’t Go” is a tough but tender journey that aims to illuminate the everyday struggles of disadvantaged fathers. Alex, Nelson, Roy and Omar shatter the deadbeat dad stereotype and redefine what it means to be a good father for all men.

Film Movement Screening: The Teacher (Ucitelka)

Film Movement Screening: The Teacher (Ucitelka)

Pinney Library
02/14/2018
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

A monthly film screening of first-run, award winning independent and foreign films.

In a middle school classroom in Bratislava in 1983, a new teacher, Maria Drazdechova (Maurery), asks each student to stand up, introduce themselves and tell her what their parents do for a living. It slowly becomes clear that perhaps the pupils' grades are related to how willing their guardians are open to helping her out with her errands, her housecleaning, and other random services. After one of the students attempts suicide, however, the director of the school has no choice but to call for an emergency parents' meeting to remove the teacher, but because Ms. Drazdechova is also a high-ranking official of the Communist Party, parents are hesitant to sign a petition to transfer her out. In a classroom behind the Iron Curtain, the future of all the families are at stake, as the film examines how each family must wrestle with standing up for what they believe in or silently keep the status quo.

This film is in Slovak with English subtitles. It is not rated.

Music and Memory Launch and Film Screening of 'Alive Inside'

Music and Memory Launch and Film Screening of 'Alive Inside'

Central Library, Meeting Rooms 301 & 302
02/15/2018
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us to learn more about Music & Memory, a nationwide initiative to bring personalized music into the lives of older adults through digital technology.

Join the library on February 15 at 6:30 p.m. for a special free showing of the award-winning documentary, “Alive Inside” – a 70-minute cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls.

Music & Memory was founded in 2006 in the Greater New York Area on a simple premise: Using music to improve the lives of those living with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges by enabling them to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories. The connection between music and the areas of the brain that control memory and emotion has been recognized by neurologists for some time. In fact, our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory. For people living with memory and cognitive disorders, personalized music can be therapeutic, helping them access memories from long ago and reconnect with the here and now.

Since the program's founding, it has found a place in thousands of healthcare organizations in the U.S. and Canada. In 2013, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services became the first in the country to offer Music & Memory to all of the nursing homes in the state. Find more information about the project at musicandmemory.org

The program has expanded beyond long-term care and into our communities and eight City of Madison public libraries are poised to offer Music & Memory to our patrons. Please join us on February 15th to learn more about this exciting, free, life-changing program.

Brown) charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer (Kate Hudson). Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer, Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad). Together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and Anti-Semitism.
