King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm. Written and directed by Aaron Woolf www.kingcorn.net.

 

Big River presents the “next step”: where do the chemicals go that farmers use to grow all that corn? Our plan for the evening is to screen both short films, and then have a discussion with the director and writer, Aaron Woolf.

From the time she was a teenager, Shelley Hendler worked. First making money babysitting and tutoring in high school, then later as an educator in the Baltimore County school system, then for 12 years, she served as a middle school administrator for Krieger Schechter Day School.

Yet, five years ago, Shelley felt it was time to move on and start her own “chapter two.” Knowing she was still young, and looking to broaden her horizons, this empty-nester wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to do. Then several opportunities came knocking at her door.

Notre Dame Prep Seniors Reflect on Four Memorable Years

Notre Dame Prep Seniors 2019
NDP Senior Ashley Nwafor

It’s a late spring afternoon at Notre Dame Preparatory School (NDP) in Towson, and there’s a palpable buzz in the air. And no wonder. The school’s seniors are winding down the final days of their high school career. They’re fretting about AP exams, putting final touches on end-of-the-year projects, getting excited about the upcoming prom and, of course, graduation. Then they’ll be on to the next phase of their academic lives.

But first, a few graduating seniors—Ashley Nwafor, Olivia Meyers, and Suzie Albornoz—take the time to reflect on their four years of high school at NDP. At once reflective and giddy with memories, they discuss how their high school experience has shaped them into the young women they are today, and the multiple ways it’s prepared them for what lies ahead.

In partnership with the Pratt Library’s Writers LIVE series, we welcome Mark Bowden, discussing his latest book, The Last Stone. Mark Bowden is the author of thirteen books, including the New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down. He will be in conversation with Dan Fesperman, an award winning author and former foreign correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. His latest novel is Safe Houses. For forty years the mystery of what happened to the Lyons sisters, aged 10 and 12, who disappeared in 1975 from the Wheaton Plaza shopping mall in suburban Washington, D.C, haunted an entire community, including journalist Mark Bowden, who covered the story as a cub reporter. With The Last Stone, he now returns to the crime to cover the extraordinary effort by authorities to bring their kidnapper to justice and to try to answer the question he could never shake, “Who would commit such a crime? And, why?” Click here for more details.
