Tuesday, August 27, 2019 – How Big Oil Conquered the World 10:00 am Room E-105
How Big Oil Conquered the World, a provocative production of the Corbett Report, recounts the troubled history of the oil industry from the Rockefellers to the present. Viewers are presented with a picture of an industry determined to become a world superpower with control over everything from pharmaceuticals to green technologies to education. Is our society truly subject to the nefarious designs of big oil? Come ready to discuss the accusations and the implications for all of us.
Tetris is a tile-matching puzzle video game â€“ some say the one that started it all -- originally designed and programmed by Soviet Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov. Tetris: from Russia with Love is the story behind the fiendishly addictive game, a tale of high stakes, intimidation, and legal feuds set against the backdrop of Cold War Tensions between East and West. Even if you are not a video game enthusiast, you will be intrigued by this story of the business dealings and negotiations that took it from a Moscow computer into homes and hands around the world.
Documentaries run between one to two hours. LLI will provide drinks, popcorn and some great discussion about the film! Cost $10 for Members, Non-Members & Patrons
