First, we'll have the option to enjoy free jazz at the terrific Katz Plaza (7th and Penn, very close to the Benedum) where people can mingle and have a drink/food while enjoying the lively sounds of the Benny Benack III Band.
While the band performs from 5-7 PM, it may be easier to meet around 6 PM (depending on everyone's work schedule) near the tables/trees between the stage and the outdoor bar area.
Then, for those attending jazz, we can walk 1.5 blocks to the nearby Harris Theater (809 Liberty Avenue) where there will be a special pre-screening discussion at 7 PM prior to the 8 PM movie screening of "We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks" which has gotten great reviews (see below). Tickets are $8 adults, $7 students/seniors, $4 for CMU/Pitt/Art Institute.
Join Pittsburgh Filmmakers and PublicSource on June 25 at 7:00pm at the Harris Theater for a screening of the film "We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks" and a discussion about information and the internet As governments provide less information while taking more, what do we have the right to know about our government? What does the government have the right to know about us? And what is the role of the press?
Panel at 7:00pm and 8:00pm film screening.
Panelists will include:
-- Tom Farrell, an attorney and former board member of the Greater Pittsburgh ACLU.
The national ACLU has sued the Obama Administration, saying a program of the National Security Agency that collects telephone information violates the Constitution.
--Kim deBourbon, executive director of the Pennsylvania Freedom of Information Coalition.
--Carl Prine, a reporter at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review who has written about the NSA and whistleblowers.
