Barbershop Punk: Net Neutrality, Media Consolidation and You

Loading...
"When Robb Topolski set out to share his collection of rare, turn-of-the-century barbershop quartet recordings over the internet, he found his uploads were blocked by his service provider, the nation's largest cable company, Comcast. From this seemingly innocuous beginning, the surprising events of BARBERSHOP PUNK unfold as Topolski's findings go public, casting him as a wry David against a corporate Goliath in a battle over how the First Amendment should function in the internet age. Inter-woven with the struggles of the Topolski family are FCC hearings on net neutrality, and discussions with politicians, musicians, critics and open Internet advocates-from the Christian Coalition to NARAL--who are striving to keep the Internet accessible to everyone"--Container.

Battle Over the Books [electronic resource]: Censorship in American Schools

John Scopes went on trial for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution; nearly 70 years later, an Illinois English teacher was confronted by protesters who demanded that J. D.

Whatever it's called, it means that books are under attack-from "Cinderella" to Huckleberry Finn. This program looks at how teachers can prepare themselves against attack, and looks at those who, in the name of religion or equality or whatever cause, are aiming the censor's gun at teachers and books.

This unique film examines the battle raging to control China's airwaves. Working with a government that allows nothing of social or political import to be broadcast, entrepreneurs from Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia bring their full complement of consumerism and mindless entertainment to the millions or Chinese greedy for a glimpse of the outside world. Prof. Leonard Chu of Hong Kong Baptist University sees the arrival of television to the villages of China as a positive development, even with its limited programming. He applauds the new openness, providing a "window on the world." On the other hand, we hear from the director of Shanghai Communications whose only interest is in selling.

The film goes on to show the bookburnings and protests that Satanic Verses provoked thoughout Moslem communities all over the world, but most shockingly in Bradford, England. Bradford is the Islamic capital of England. There are forty mosques and many Koranic schools. Many of its inhabitants support the fatwa of Ayotollah Komeini and express their disgust at the book.
