Memorial Library Presents the film “THE OTHER CITY”

SUNY Cortland’s Memorial Library will present a screening of the film “The Other City” on Tuesday, January 28th at 7:00 PM in Sperry 105.

In every city, there’s another city that visitors rarely see. But this other city isn’t just anywhere—it’s in Washington, D.C. The very city that is home to the capitol of the most powerful country in the world has an HIV/AIDS rate that is not only the nation’s highest, but rivals some African countries.

“The Other City” introduces us to the people who live in the shadow of the Capitol but remain almost invisible to the lawmakers and lobbyists who live there. It’s about politics and ideology, corruption and bureaucracy, and an epidemic that grew out of control while few people paid attention or cared.

The screening is a joint effort of Memorial Library and the Cultural and Intellectual Climate Committee (CICC). The CICC is an all-campus committee of faculty and staff appointed by the Provost. Each year members of the Committee choose a theme to frame a year-long series of lectures, discussions, film screenings, and art exhibits. This theme is meant to promote cultural life on campus and help the campus and Cortland community engage in discussions connected to issues relevant to today’s world. This year’s theme is Inter/Action.

HIV/AIDS is a world-wide health issue that affects not only our nation’s capitol  but every community.

Please consider attending.
