                        LION GOODMAN

      The Power of Beliefs: How They Impact our Lives, our Relationships, and our Politics

Lion Goodman is a Professional Certified Coach and CEO of the Clear Beliefs Institute. After studying more than twenty different belief-change methodologies, Goodman developed a way to identify the crucial elements of the belief-change process. He created the Clear Beliefs Method to permanently delete old, negative, and limiting beliefs. He says this is not a silver bullet that changes everything magically, but is a tool to work with a step-by-step process. In this interview, we will discuss how beliefs can change not only in our personal development but how they can change in systems, organizations, and even in politics. We will explore the negative aspects of rigid beliefs as well as the process of dismantling them. Goodman has written several books, including Clear Your Beliefs and The Narcissism Primer.

                          LINDA DITTMAR

                 Tracing Homelands: Israel, Palestine, and the Claims of Belonging                                                          
Linda Dittmar was born in NYC but grew up in Tel Aviv during the early years of Israel's formation. She returned to the U.S., studying at Stanford University where she received BA and PhD degrees in Comparative Literature. She accepted a professorship at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, where she focused on film as well as literature. Dittmar has also taught at the University of Paris, Tel Aviv University and received two Fullbright grants to India. Since becoming Professor emerita, she has focused on Israel/Palestine, a return to her roots, which led to her book, Tracing Homelands.This book is an intimate, beautifully written account that uncovers inconvenient truths about an embattled Israeli-Palestinian history that is often buried in silence. Its eloquently personal voice charts a reluctant eyewitness' journey to uncover the ruins of Palestinian villages destroyed in the 1948 war, while weaving flashbacks to Dittmar's Israli youth and Zionist upbringing. A braided narrative told with empathy and unflinching honesty, it reflects on the Palestinian and Jewish lives entwined in this searing history.

Beyond Bars,
a film created by Robert Greenwald for Brave New Films. 

                                            WITH  CHESA BOUDIN

This documentary traces the life of former SF District Attorney Chesa Boudin and his formerly incarcerated parents, Cathy Boudin and David Gilbert. As Chesa says: “This film is really about the history of racism and mass incarceration in this country. And it’s that same history that led in a circuitous way to my parents’ incarceration — to my own experience with jails and prisons since before I can remember.” The film includes interview with Chesa's parents and clips from his SF campaign.Boudin is a Yale educated attorney who now is Director of the Criminal Law and Justice Center at UC Berkeley. Chesa Boudin will be with us for a discussion and to answer questions after the screening.
