  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Big City Forum: Creative Action #2

Yuval Sharon – Artistic Director, The Industry
Danielle Agami – Artistic Director, Ate9 Dance Company
Victoria Looseleaf – L.A. TImes arts journalist, contributing reporter at KUSC

In conjunction with Otis’ Creative Action program, Big City Forum presents a series of four discussions featuring individuals who reinvent social space and redefine how we engage with each other. This panel addresses the collaborative process between an opera director and a dance choreographer/director in relation to their recent trans-disciplinary staging of Italo Calvino’s “Invisible Cities” at L.A.’s Union Station and the current performance installation of Terry Riley's In C at the Hammer Museum. Organized by alumnus Leonardo Bravo.
