Unholy alliance Anthony Sciolino, a Rochester resident and retired New York State Family Court judge, has published “The Holocaust, The Church, And The Law Of Unintended Consequences: How Christian AntiJudaism Spawned Nazi Anti-Semitism.” The book paints a scathing picture of the Catholic Church’s anti-Jewish bias over many centuries. Its cover features a startling image of four Catholic priests raising their arms in the familiar “Heil Hitler” Nazi salute at a 1933 Catholic youth rally.
But Sciolino is no anti-Catholic activist. He has a master’s degree from St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry and he is an ordained permanent deacon of the Roman Catholic Church, Diocese of Rochester. In a recent interview, Sciolino talked about the vilification of Jews in the New Testament; the encouragement of anti-Jewish bias by early theologians, church councils, and popes; Nazi laws against Jews derived from church tradition; and the Nazis’ use of torture techniques pioneered by the Holy Inquisition.

“He has guided the city as it copes with a declining tax base….” [from our endorsement of Tom Richards for mayor]. What is the most repeated, yet incorrect, statement about the City of Rochester? That its tax base is in decline. It isn’t. And it has not been for quite some time, dating back to the latter years of the Johnson Administration. Look it up: every city budget document includes a display that details the year-to-year change in assessed values (i.e., the foundation of the tax base). It has been going up. It has not been in decline. RICHARD HANNON
From the editors: Hannon’s correct, with a slight qualification. In terms of real dollars, the assessed value of city property has been increasing since 2003-04 – despite the decline at Kodak Park. The assessed value adjusted for inflation was declining, however, until 200708. It rose in 08-09, dropped back a bit the following three years, and for 2012-13 was back up close to the 08-09 level. (It’s still substantially down from its 1991-92 level.) City spokesperson Gary Walker adds this: “It is important to realize that the erosion over time of our industrial tax base has been significant and that recent trends, while positive, are unlikely to overcome that. “As a result, residents must shoulder more of the tax burden. In fact, the tax rate for homeowners increased 50 percent from 199192 to 2012-13, while the tax rate for businesses rose only 16 percent over the same period. We lost a vast amount of our industrial tax base, and a thousand new homes with new residents would not make up for a few bustling Kodak buildings back in the day.
“To further illustrate the magnitude of this shift of burden, if you apply the current nonhomestead tax rate to Kodak’s taxable assessment from 1986-87, Kodak would pay more than $13 million more in taxes annually than it does now.”
Questioning our endorsements
Your recent article that evaluated the school board candidates and led to your endorsements missed the boat. It sounds like you are reluctantly supporting three candidates who don’t measure up to your rightfully high expectations for the job. If the candidates are not good enough, why not say that and not endorse any candidate? If things are going to change, we need highly qualified leadership. Why not press for the election of candidates who have the leadership and collaborative skills needed to do the job? An option might be for qualified leaders to step up and run as write-in candidates this year. Your endorsement of incumbents Cruz and White is equivalent to their “social promotion.” As an important public opinion leader, please don’t compromise your consistently high standards for the future of the community by supporting people who don’t have what it takes to do the tough job of leading RCSD to success. BOB VOLPE
Marlowe Washington is a much better candidate that many of this year’s City Council incumbents. City’s excuse for some endorsements was simply that they have more time in their Council seats: a poor excuse. Marlowe brings passion, drive, ideas, and hope for the future, not nostalgic waxing about the past. It’s time for Marlowe Washington for City Council. PAT DOMARATZ
Teachers and problem students
As a teacher in the city school district, I would like to add that we are not afraid of students at all (“Black Ministers Say Parents and Students Need to Make School Highest Priority,” News Blog). We
have been stripped of all our tools to help diminish problem behavior. Teachers and administrators have no power; we can not kick disruptive students out, we can not send them home; we need to keep them in our room where they continue to cause problems and distract the 80 percent of students who want to learn. They continue to be disruptive and disrespectful because they know we have no power. It all boils down to the almighty dollar: if kids are in school, the district receives more money, which is why they need to stay in the classroom regardless of their behavior. What the state and politicians don’t seem to understand is the more disruption we have in the classroom, the less kids there will be receiving a quality education. It’s nearly impossible to teach anything with substance when you are trying to extinguish fires for at least half the class time. KJANE
Greenhouse gas is national issue
How does it make sense for states to pass legislation to fight greenhouse gases (“State Legislators Propose Massive Environmental Financing Legislation,” News Blog)? If one state does it but all the other states around them do not, how can this help? It would mean raising the taxes of the people in that state. This is part of the reason people leave New York State. If you’re gonna try to fight greenhouse gases, at least do it at the federal level. COREY SAPP
Schools can’t do it all
If the community schools would also offer social services to people in the neighborhood, it would be a huge step toward adopting Geoffrey Canada’s visionary Harlem project in every one of New York State’s Big Five school districts (“Cuomo Pushes Community Schools,” News Blog). Unless we can help children at the very beginning – read in utero – there are no schools that can make a dent in the mess we have gotten ourselves into. KATHRYN QUINN THOMAS

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
What’s next? Obama, Syria, and Congress Obama’s address on Syria on Saturday wasn’t what anybody expected. And it didn’t take long for the predictable critics to launch the predictable criticisms. (He looks weak; he’s making the US look weak; he doesn’t know what he’s doing; he’s emboldening Assad.) But I thought the speech was excellent. And seeking Congressional authorization before attacking Syria is absolutely the right decision. Although plenty of observers disagree, I believe the Constitution and the US War Powers Act require him to do just that. Obama is convinced that we should launch “limited attacks” on Syrian military targets to show Assad that there are consequences to the use of chemical weapons. The aim is not to overthrow Assad or destroy the chemical weapons. It is simply to, in Obama’s words, “hold the Assad regime accountable for their use of chemical weapons, deter this kind of behavior, and degrade their capacity to carry it out.” Obama promises that the action would be “designed to be limited in duration and scope” – no “boots on the ground.” I don’t think he can guarantee that, and John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been pushing him to go beyond limited strikes, to cause substantial harm to Assad’s forces and substantial help for the rebels. But the cautiousness of Obama’s response is proof that he understands the risks of an attack: we can’t predict what Assad would do in response, what Iran and Hezbollah would do, what the civilian casualties would be, how likely it is that we would get drawn into further action. In his push for an attack on Syria, Obama clearly doesn’t have the majority of Americans behind him (not to mention key allies). But while opinion polls shouldn’t dictate our foreign policy, particularly when the country is weary of war – and, in some quarters, tending toward isolation – sometimes presidents have to do unpopular things. This particular president bears a particularly heavy burden: despite being elected not once but twice, some of his critics are determined to do almost anything to destroy him. Whatever we do in Syria, whether we attack or not, there will be blood on our hands. Having the individual members of Congress take a stand means that there will be blood on all of our hands, not just those of the president. A rousing debate in Congress, televised for the world to see, is well worth having. US involvement in conflicts like Syria – regardless of the use of chemical weapons – is extremely complex. Those who want to
The cautiousness of Obama’s response is proof that he understands the risks: we can’t predict what Assad would do in response.” simplify it, or avoid taking a stand, need to explain themselves. Michael Tomasky, writing on The Daily Beast, notes another value in the involvement of Congress: It sets a precedent that “will now be cited by congresses well into the future whenever a president wants to undertake a jolly little shoot-up – he’ll need to go to Congress first (for big, real, ground-troop wars, the pressure to consult Congress will always be great).” “It’s a big relinquishing of power,” writes Tomasky, “a major constitutional recalibration that will outlast him and the yahoos whose votes he’s going to be seeking, and Obama deserves props for it.” This is a tense, uncertain time, and the stakes in our foreign-policy decisions are enormous. It doesn’t help that the anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks coincides with this deliberation. It was on the 2012 anniversary that the attack on the embassy in Benghazi occurred. The president has done what he needed to do. Now it’s time for Congress and American citizens to do something we’ve needed to do for a very long time: discuss how we should respond to brutal governments who terrorize and kill their own people. It’s too bad there won’t be a similar debate at the United Nations. This is an international crisis, involving international law, and the international community should take a stand, not just carp or kibitz from the sidelines.

Uninsured can start shopping soon
While the Republican majority in Congress and many Republican governors have spent their time attacking the Affordable Care Act, New York and many other states have been establishing the health insurance exchanges that the law requires. The exchanges will do exactly what the law intended, says Sister Christine Wagner. They will connect the uninsured and underinsured to affordable health plans.
Loop be gone
A long-talked-about project to fill a portion of the inner loop has found funding. The federal government has committed $17.7 million to fill in the eastern section of the loop from Monroe Avenue to Charlotte Street. The City of Rochester will have to contribute $5.9 million to reach the project’s estimated $24 million price tag. Officials say the project will reconnect neighborhoods to downtown and spur development.

The Rochester-Novgorod relationship has been particularly active and productive. Informally, the relationship started in the 1980’s, when Cold War tensions still defined US and Soviet Union interactions. In 1990, the two communities officially became sister cities.

To Russia, with tough love In Los Angeles, City Council members are giving serious consideration to severing Sister City ties with St. Petersburg, Russia. Last year, Venice and Milan broke off their relationships with the city. In all of those cases, the actions were a direct response to Russia’s anti-LGBT laws, which have been widely characterized as prohibiting the dissemination of “homosexual propaganda” to minors. The laws appear to target public displays of support for LGBT rights, including protests and pride marches, say many news articles. And other communities with Russian sister cities are being pressured to follow suit and sever ties. Rochester has its own Russian sister city, Velikiy Novgorod, a community of 218,000 located northwest of Moscow and southeast of St. Petersburg. But in Rochester, critics of Russia’s laws want a different approach toward Novgorod, which hasn’t passed anti-LGBT laws. “I don’t think we want to sever ties,” says Anne Tischer, a local LGBT activist who has reached out to Rochester City Council members Matt Haag and Carolee Conklin on this issue. “I think we want to call on them to be allies.” That approach is more in line with the mission of the Sister Cities program, which focuses on communication and engagement on a people-to-people basis, says Conklin, who is president of International Sister Cities
of Rochester. Sister Cities is, in simple terms, international citizen diplomacy. “The whole point of Sister Cities is leading by example,” Conklin says. Conklin says that using political or legal litmus tests would mean an end to “probably half of our Sister Cities.” Rochester’s 12 Sister Cities include Xianyang, China; Rehovot, Israel; and Bamako, Mali. Sister Cities International, the national nonprofit parent group, has a policy against cancelling Sister Cities relationships over what it calls political disputes. “Suspending sister city relationships closes a channel of communication through which meaningful dialogue may be held,” the policy says. And the Rochester-Novgorod relationship has been particularly active and productive. Informally, the relationship started in the 1980’s, when Cold War tensions still defined US and Soviet Union interactions. In 1990, the two communities officially became sister cities. When the Soviet Union collapsed, Rochester police officers and local lawyers and judges helped Novgorod rebuild its police and legal system. Rochesterians are currently helping the Novgorod community address issues around child welfare, family services, substance abuse prevention, women’s equality and economic
parity, elder services, and education, says Paul Caccamise, chair of the Novgorod Sister Cities committee. Each summer, the local Sister Cities committee sends two English teachers over to lead seminars on language and American history and Anne Tischer. culture. And every FILE PHOTO other year it brings over a Novgorod teacher to visit Rochester schools. To sever ties with the community would be to leave lasting partnerships behind, Caccamise says. He says he plans to discuss Russia’s anti-LGBT laws with the local Novgorod committee when it meets this month. The committee could reach out to liaisons in Novgorod to express deep concern with the national anti-LGBT laws, stress that they create a hostile environment, and offer to talk about US and local experiences with LGBT rights, he says. “Severing ties would really be abandoning the LGBT citizens of Novgorod at a time when they most need our support,” Caccamise says.

INTERVIEW | BY RON NETSKY
nthony Sciolino grew up in Rochester’s northeast section, in a neighborhood so Christian in the 1950’s that Sciolino says he never saw a Jewish person until high school. But in eighth grade, when he was assigned to read “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank, it struck a chord. “She was my age,” Sciolino says, “and she died because she was Jewish. There was something fundamentally wrong, unfair.” Six decades later, after retiring from his position as a New York State Family Court judge, Sciolino has published “The Holocaust, The Church, And The Law Of Unintended Consequences: How Christian Anti-Judaism Spawned Nazi Anti-Semitism.” The book paints a scathing picture of the Catholic Church’s anti-Jewish bias over many centuries, a bias that Sciolino says helped create the conditions that allowed the Holocaust to happen. Sciolino is no anti-Catholic activist. He has a master’s degree from St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry and he is an ordained permanent deacon of the Roman Catholic Church, Diocese of Rochester. Sciolino graduated from Columbia University and Cornell University Law School and has done extensive research on the Holocaust, visiting concentration camps and participating in conferences. He wrote the book in the basement of the Pittsford home he shares with his wife, Gloria. The book’s cover features a startling image of four Catholic priests raising their arms in the familiar “Heil Hitler” Nazi salute at a 1933 Catholic youth rally. In a recent interview, Sciolino talked about the vilification of Jews in the New 6 CITY

Testament; the encouragement of anti-Jewish bias by early theologians, church councils, and popes; Nazi laws against Jews derived from church tradition; and the Nazis’ use of torture techniques pioneered by the Holy Inquisition. He also discussed recent developments in the church, including the new pope and where he believes the church is still on the wrong side of history. The following is an edited version of that discussion.
The pope, for example, is still an absolute monarch like the king of Saudi Arabia. How could Jesus, who was born, lived, and died a Jew, have approved of the Holocaust, the worst catastrophe in human history? How could any thinking person with any semblance of conscience think that it was O.K. to kill millions of people in cold blood? Yet the Holocaust was perpetrated by Christians. The Holocaust didn’t start at Auschwitz; the road began 2,000 years ago.
CITY: Why did you write this book?
What is your thesis?
Sciolino: It’s a truth that needs to be told, although admittedly an inconvenient truth for some. The tendencies that caused the church to become unintentionally complicit in the Holocaust continue to this day.
The Holocaust happened because Christians failed to live according to Jesus’s Gospel of Love. They failed to practice what Jesus preached about leading an ethical life. Tragically, the image of Jews as God-killers,
and their refusal to convert to Christianity fueled a long tradition of intolerance, hatred, and violence against them. It is an indisputable fact of history that for close to two millennia, Jews have been humiliated, victimized, denigrated, discriminated against, banished from countries, compelled to wear distinctive clothing, and forced to live in ghettos. They have been marginalized, demonized, stigmatized as “other,” portrayed as offspring of the devil, wrongly blamed for causing human and natural catastrophes, accused of libels like the ritual murder of Christian children, tortured and killed — by Christians — with the approval of the church. Regrettably, Nazi propaganda effectively exploited this shameful tradition to pave the way for the Holocaust. A primary function of the church is to help form the consciences of believers, providing them a mechanism to determine right from wrong. Christian conscience malfunctioned before and during the Holocaust. Popes were supposed to be the primary teachers and exemplars of moral behavior. For reasons explained in the book, the church — the hierarchy and laity — failed to function as Jesus would have expected, resulting in the unintended consequence of Christian complicity in the Holocaust. You write that “for close to 2,000 years, Jews have been objectified and dehumanized, making it easier for 20th century Christians, so inclined, to murder them individually or as a group.” How is the Holocaust, as you say in your book, an “unintended consequence” rather than a logical conclusion?
You’re not the first person to ask me that; how could they not have seen this coming?
But others condemn my thesis as antiCatholic. They claim my book is revisionist history written by a disgruntled Catholic smearing his church. I don’t think so; I’m a deacon in the church. Catholicism is in my DNA. But over the years I’ve recognized that the church is made up of people and people are prone to error and sin. Do you believe popes are infallible?
History proves that popes are not infallible. The dogma of papal infallibility deals with matters of faith and morals. An infallible pope could have reversed 2,000 years of Christian anti-Judaism at any time along the way. What is more of a moral question than Christian bias against Jews resulting in the Holocaust? Many theologians believe that the doctrine of papal infallibility was a mistake. If you’re going to claim such absolute authority, there’s no room for error. Pope Pius IX and Vatican Council I made infallibility dogma, but popes have considered themselves infallible for centuries. When popes make absolute statements like the sun revolves around the earth, it doesn’t leave them any wiggle room. Guess what, they were wrong. It’s the same with birth control; modern science disproves the natural law rationale for forbidding it. Times have changed. You write, “Scripture has been misinterpreted or misused to justify slavery, religious intolerance, subjugation of women and homosexuals, unjust war, and burning of heretics and killing of infidels all in the name of God.” If we still used medical books from centuries ago, we’d both be dead. Why not update the Bible and remove those terrible things?
Because believers consider the Bible to be revelation from God. That being said, however, Scripture can only be understood in context. In calling Vatican Council II [which repudiated and rejected anti-Judaism] into session, Pope John XXIII said the church needed aggiornamento — updating and renewal. It needed to enter into a more constructive engagement with the modern world. “It is not that the Gospel has changed,” he explained, “it is that we have begun to understand it better...and know that the moment has come to discern the signs of the times, to seize the opportunity, and to look far ahead.” What makes you conclude that anti-Jewish Nazi laws originated in church practice?
Historian Raul Hilberg found that 15 laws of Nazi Germany paralleled pronouncements of ecumenical councils. One of the councils, for example, declared that Christians and Jews were
forbidden to marry. It became a criminal offense in Nazi Germany. Other councils declared that Jews had to live in ghettos and forced them to wear distinctive clothing, both of which became Nazi practices as well.
There’s something called evil. What caused the Holocaust? In my judgment, it was a complete failure of conscience vis-a-vis the Jews. Conscience didn’t function because Jews were not viewed as human.
Pope Pius IX endorsed the blood libel — the myth that Jews use the blood of gentile children to make Passover matzo. Pope John Paul II beatified him. Some of the most antiJewish popes have been made saints.
A few years ago, Pope Benedict rejected the idea that various religions offer access to God. He dismissed the idea that salvation is available to all. Was this a step backward?
John Paul II also beatified Pope Pius XII, who critics say was complicit in the Holocaust. Pope Benedict XVI sought to have Pope Pius XII canonized a saint during his pontificate, and Pope Francis recently raised the issue again. Since the Vatican’s World War II archives have yet to be opened for scholarly review, the jury is still out on Pope Pius XII. But naming him a saint without a full review of all of the evidence would be a mistake. According to my research, the controversy surrounding Pope Pius XII is well founded. In the book you are especially critical of Pope Pius XII and his lack of response to the Holocaust.
Some traditionalist Catholics question the fairness of my criticizing Pope Pius XII for what he didn’t say or do in 1942, when Hitler was at the height of his power. Well, I also criticize him for what he didn’t say or do in 1933, the year of Hitler’s appointment as chancellor, when Hitler was politically weak. Or what Pope Pius XII didn’t say or do in subsequent years of the Third Reich, as Hitler’s genocidal plan unfolded. Hitler did not arise full-blown out of the head of Venus as the powerful figure he eventually became. He could have been stopped earlier on. How long did it take for the church to officially condemn Hitler’s actions against the Jews?
It didn’t happen until 1965, during Vatican II. Pope Pius XII had to leave the stage before the church could address the issue. Pope Pius died in 1958 and was succeeded by Blessed Pope John XXIII, who was supposed to be a caretaker pope. But Pope John called the Second Vatican Council into session, which inaugurated much-needed reform in the church. Progressive Catholics like me view Vatican II as the best thing to happen in the church since the Middle Ages. What has the church done to make amends for its treatment of the Jews? Did it ever apologize?
The church acknowledged the causal link between church history and the Holocaust, but rejected the notion that Christian anti-
Yes. One of the hallmarks of Vatican II is ecumenism. The church’s position before Vatican II was [that] the Roman Catholic Church is the one true faith and the only means of salvation. Not even Protestants could attain it. Vatican II acknowledged that there are other ways to reach salvation. But traditional Catholics continue to dispute that principle. You strongly support Vatican II, but others don’t share your enthusiasm. The cover of Anthony Sciolino’s book shows four Catholic priests raising their arms in a “Heil Hitler” Nazi salute at a 1933 Catholic youth rally. PROVIDED IMAGE
Judaism had anything to do with Nazi antiSemitism, which is the premise of my book. The church has, however, rejected antiSemitism and has attempted to build bridges between Catholicism and Judaism. In short, the church has not acknowledged complicity in the Holocaust, but a number of national bishop conferences have on its behalf, including Italy, France, Switzerland, and the U.S. You write about priests in Germany disclosing blood types from records of marriages and baptisms to identify Jews. Did priests help the Nazis?
Unfortunately, the answer is yes. My book documents the evidence. There were, for example, at least 138 “brown priests” who actively supported National Socialism. Some of them were members of the Nazi party. The enlightenment writer Voltaire said, “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” Does that apply today?
It certainly applies to the Jonestown massacre, for example, and to any number of incidents. People who are willing to die for their faith are often willing to kill for it. I learned that principle in my world history class at Ben Franklin High School. It stuck in my head and is mentioned in my book. If you believe blindly, without questioning, you will get excuses like “I was only following orders,” which was heard as an excuse during the Nuremburg trials for committing war crimes. Nonsense. There’s something called conscience.
Most people don’t realize that until Vatican II, the church condemned freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and freedom of thought. Check out Pope Pius IX’s encyclical Syllabus of Errors, affirmed by the First Vatican Council. Vatican II changed official church positions on a number of key issues, yet there are traditionalists, many in the Vatican Curia, who maintain that it didn’t change anything. For example, Pope Benedict XVI said, “The Second Vatican Council does not represent any kind of rupture with previous ecumenical councils because the church cannot change.” Does the church fear knowledge?
The church for most of its history has discouraged the faithful from reading the Bible, preferring instead to interpret Scripture for them. It has discouraged dissent and silenced critics. The burning of heretics by the Holy Inquisition is an unfortunate part of its history. Prior to Vatican II, the role of the laity was said to be to “pay, pray, and obey.” Scientific discoveries have sometimes challenged church doctrines and tradition, which has been problematic for its worldview. You describe many instances where the church was on the wrong side of history. Where do you believe the church is on the wrong side of history today?
On the issue of birth control. Ninety percent of Catholics use birth control. What does that tell you? On the role of women. Many Catholics believe women have not been fully recognized for their gifts and that they ought to play a larger role within the church, including being ordained as deacons and priests. continues on page 9 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Wall\Therapy continues into Fall Therapy

After the ambitious endeavor put on in Rochester this past July, it would be reasonable for the Wall\Therapy organizers to call it a season and kick back for a bit. But the momentum for the local street-art festival is showing no signs of slowing, as Dr. Ian Wilson and his crew have more in store for Rochester and the global communities his organization seeks to help. Continuing now and running through the early winter, more murals will be painted on local buildings, a spotlight will be shined on Impact — the medical philanthropy effort behind Wall\Therapy — and a Global Giving campaign will be launched to raise funds for the medical infrastructure that Wilson aims to install in two third-world communities by the close of the year. “It was a whirlwind week,” says Erich Lehman, owner of 1975 Gallery, who took a strong leadership role in organizing this summer’s Wall\Therapy, which focused on the El Camino Trail and the South Wedge. More than 30 murals 8 CITY
SEPTEMBER 4-10, 2013
were created in 10 days, by local artists as well as muralists and graffiti writers who traveled to Rochester from New York City, Newark, Baltimore, Oakland, Nairobi, and Cape Town, among other cities. In effect, the festival produced roughly two-thirds more murals this season than it did the year before. But the show’s not over. Tel Aviv-based artist Know Hope was in town August 1923 and painted murals on the El Camino Trail, at the Rochester Public Market, and on South Avenue. German artist Case, who painted the giant mermaid and diver on Pennsylvania Avenue behind the Public Market last summer, returned August 18 to paint another giant on South and Gregory, and on August 28, began work on a massive portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the Metro Retro/Gel Salon building at Park Avenue and Colby Street. There is yet another potential mural slated for later in September, but Wall\Therapy organizers are still
negotiating timing with the to-beannounced jet-set artist’s schedule. Chaos has calmed enough, however, for the lead organizers to reflect a bit on this year’s festival. “I got a front-row seat, with so many other folks, to watch some of the modern masters practice their craft alongside some of the best that Rochester has to offer,” says Lehman. “Every one of our local artists produced work that held its own with our visiting artists.” New friendships were forged between artists from all over the world, and among Rochesterians, too. “Bridges between quadrants of our city are being built with murals as interconnecting nodes in an expanding visual network,” says Wilson. “We’ve witnessed many perusing our newest all-access ‘outdoor galleries.’ Some travel from quite a distance to tour the murals,” he says. This year, the team sought to increase both dialogue and awareness about Impact, the driving force behind the mural-making efforts, which seeks to set up medical-
imaging infrastructure in third-world communities, beginning with Borgne, Haiti, and Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh. To this end, Wall\Therapy is working with locally based creative agency Partners and Napier to develop a stronger web presence for Impact, leading up to the launch of Impact’s Global Giving campaign, which is crowd-sourced funding on a global scale. Wilson has traveled to both of the target locations and plans to tap the talents of artists to tell the stories of the people Impact will help. Earlier in the summer, Wilson talked about an effort to hold simultaneous pop-up shows with artists in many cities around the nation and the world. Efforts to organize this are still in the works, with a target date being discussed for the spring. For more information about Impact, Wall\Therapy and its associated upcoming projects, and a map of the dozens of currently existing local murals, visit wall-therapy.com.

What parallels do you see, if any, to what’s going on today? Are we marginalizing certain ethic groups?
It could be argued that marginalization continues within the church (but not to the extent as with the Jews), for example, among women, dissenting theologians, divorced Catholics, gays, lesbians, transgendered people, and liberal-progressive Catholics.

You have many problems with the church. Why do you stay?
Because, as Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel said, “God is greater than religion, faith is greater than dogma.” I prefer to stay and work to reform the church from within. I love the church, but I love it I for what it’s supposed to be. It’s incumbent upon Catholics to speak out when things go off course in the church, because popes, cardinals, bishops, priests, and deacons are all human and they all sin and make mistakes. What do you hope people take away from this book?
Be wary of absolutist claims. Our brains, our intelligence after all are God-given gifts meant to be used. It’s O.K. to question authority, especially when authority takes positions contrary to conscience. Be wary of those who demonize and dehumanize others. How could the Holocaust have happened? And if there is a God, what does God do?
The Holocaust happened because people living in Europe at the time, who were over 95 percent Christian, failed to practice their faith. They failed to live according to Jesus’s Gospel of Love. God’s work on earth is meant to be done by us. Scripture tells us that God’s ways are not our ways; that the human mind cannot understand the mind of God. One way to answer the question, “Where was God?” is to answer that God is present on earth in his people. But his people were actively or passively involved in committing the horrific crimes of the Holocaust. In short, the Holocaust happened because Christians failed to act like genuine Christians. They talked the talk of Christianity, but failed to walk the walk.

Good-for-the-soul food Unkl Moe’s BBQ & Catering 493 WEST AVE. 464-8240, UNCLEMOESCATERING.COM MONDAY-WEDNESDAY 8 A.M.-3P.M., THURSDAY 8 A.M.-6 P.M., FRIDAY 8 A.M.-9 P.M., SATURDAY 8 A.M.-8 P.M., SUNDAY 8 A.M.-6 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
Early on a Saturday evening, I drove with my husband along 490, toward West Avenue. The sun was shining, traffic was flowing, and my stomach was growling in anticipation of dinner. Just prior to crossing the DouglassAnthony Bridge, the scent of barbecue — a perfume of smoke, meat, and char — wafted through the air. My mouth watered. “I hope Unkl Moe’s food tastes as good as that smells,” I said. As it turned out, the scent was Unkl Moe’s food. We’d come upon two of the restaurant's trucks, house-made smoker units in tow, headed back to the restaurant after catering an event. I’m not generally one for omens, but I took this as a good one. Pressing down on the gas pedal a little more, I urged my car forward, eager to get there, order a plate and dig in. The same smoky perfume greets you when you step into Unkl Moe’s, which serves barbecue and traditional, Southern-style favorites seven days a week. The restaurant is owned by Moses “Unkl Moe” Smith, with many recipes from Smith’s wife, Bernice. The day-to-day responsibilities are handled by General Manager Tony Clark, his primary role making “sure that the customers and employees are well taken care of.” You can see that played out in this familystyle restaurant, both in the clientele and the tight-knit crew. The waitresses might call you “Honey” when taking your drink order (go for
the sweet or half-and-half iced teas at $1.50), and you’ll catch snippets of conversation and laughter from the kitchen. At the tables, friends, couples, and families catch up while mulling over the many menu choices and, later, digging into brimming plates. The restaurant has the feel of a well-worn diner from the 70’s: lots of wood grain on the walls and the tables, the tiled floor not as bright as it perhaps once was, and the ceiling shows signs of age. If Unkl Moe’s is more of a neighborhood joint than a “restaurant,” don’t think that its diners are only from the immediate area. The food is too good to not draw in chowhounds from across Rochester. Take the chopped BBQ turkey ($10.50 with two sides), an item not found on many local menus. Smoked long and slow in the smokers crafted by Smith and a co-worker, the turkey has visible traces of a smoke ring, the pink coloring just under the skin — a hallmark of well-made barbecue. Drizzle on the house-made BBQ sauce if the meat is a touch dry, or just because the sauce is that good. Thinner than a ketchup-based sauce, this is more sweet than spicy, but there’s a kick you can see before you taste it: the sauce is dotted with hot pepper flakes and seeds. More traditional barbecue items include the pork ribs ($11 with two sides) and brisket ($11.50 with two sides). Both have that much-sought-after smoke ring, formed when nitrogen dioxide from the burning wood smoke combines with the moisture in the meat to form nitric acid. Better yet, both have bark, that tantalizing dark crust that can form on the exterior of barbecued meats. Sweet, chewy, and rich with flavor, the bark is what makes barbecue lovers swoon. There’s more bark on the ribs, because there’s more surface area in the cut. They’re also fattier (this is not a bad thing) and give you something to chew on — very tactile. For all

these reasons, I generally prefer ribs to brisket, but the sliced brisket at Unkl Moe’s should not be missed. In addition to its smoke ring and bark, it features the clean, straight marks of a grill; a rich, meaty flavor; and a chew that’s tender without being flabby. It also has burnt ends, the tips packed with bark-y, beefy goodness. A friend of mine calls eating Unkl Moe’s brisket “a religious experience,” and maybe he has a point. If beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy, why can’t good barbecue be evidence of the same thing? Once you’ve figured out the main meal — fried
catfish with a cornmeal crust ($10.50 with two sides) and oxtail ($8.50 mini/ $10 full, both on a bed of rice) that tastes like the best beef from the best beef stew, are other good options — you’ll have to decide between a slew of side-dish choices. These can be included with a meal plate or ordered a la carte ($2.75-$3). The candied yams are sweet enough to be a dessert in and of themselves. With brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and nutmeg — at least, that’s what I think; Smith is coy on the details — they’re a taste of Thanksgiving available all year. The fried okra, sliced into bite-sized chunks, has a lightly salted, cornmeal-coated crunch. Hot from the kitchen, it’s all too easy to pop them into your mouth so quickly that it’s a surprise when the bowl comes up empty.
The macaroni salad is made with cavatappi (corkscrew), a toothy, mouth-filling pasta, giving the mayo dressing and flavors of celery, pepper, and onion lots of room and ridges on which to cling. Best of all are the sweet-potato fries. Crispy on the outside with a pillowy interior, these plank-shaped fries are sprinkled with touches of sugar and cinnamon. In some spots, the heat from the fries melts and caramelizes the sugar, leaving little pockets of glaze; they’re phenomenal. If you have a sweet tooth, it would be a
sin not to order an Unkl Moe’s dessert. Individual sweet-potato pies ($2.50) are small enough to hold in your hand and have a soft crust and a filling that’s sweet, rich, and surprisingly tropical. (Is the secret pineapple juice? Lime? Smith remained mum.) The peach cobbler ($4.50), available on Saturdays, is light and fruity, deepened in flavor by cinnamon. At the other end of the spectrum, the banana pudding ($4) served on Fridays is lush, creamy, and dense, with vanilla wafers softened to a cake-like consistency. Places like Unkl Moe’s, devoted to food and family in equal measure, are increasingly hard to find, and important to enjoy. So round up those you love and tell them you’re taking them for barbecue — and to save room for dessert. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

It’s a young rock band — roughly two years old — made up of three musicians all roughly 20 years old, but it has a seasoned attitude behind a seasoned sound that belies its age. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

[ CLASSICAL ]
[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
You know, with the exception of a few bands like Deep Purple or The Apes (I’m sure there are more, but those two popped into my head first), I’m used to seeing and hearing keyboards and organs played as a support instrument, or as a principal instrument that gets steamrolled by the guitars. Perhaps I’ve been remiss, maybe I’ve been missing out. Friday night I saw Vinyl Orange Ottoman and I saw the light — I heard it, too. It all started with the band’s stage plot. The Monty’s Krown Stage is abbreviated and a little springy, like a boxing ring. The palookas in VOO solved this problem by taking up space next to the stage, as well as on it. Keymeister JJ Stashiw’s entire rig took up the whole floor directly stage left, and directly where I had parked my ass to dig the impending show. Consequently, as the band whirled and pumped and ground through its mid-tempo, nouveau blues, I got a double-dish helping of the keys mere feet away. It was incredible, and an incredible eye-opener. The band raged with an unstoppable fortitude that leaned on classic strains without relying solely
upon them. It was familiar yet new — and beautiful. Praise the lord, I have heard the light. I try really hard to keep an open mind, but I’ve been doing this critic thing for a while now and can kind of tell when I’m not going to enjoy a particular band. I’ve seen Ice Nine Kills before and was privy to the band’s standard chugga-chugga-squeal guitars and the dramatic vocals, instructing the audience how to behave (i.e. make some noise, give it up for whoever, or make a circle pit). It all had struck me as predictable and uninspired. So imagine my surprise when the band knocked me out Saturday night at Water Street Music Hall. The intro was full-on rock-star cool. The energy was genuine. Perhaps more emotion played into it, as it was the bass player’s last gig (and yes, we were told to give it up for him), and the guitarist dragged his girlfriend up on stage, dropped down on one knee, and popped the question. She said yes. The crowd went nuts. And that time, nobody even had to tell them to do so.

Music Whittemore, who I played with briefly in Serenity Falls, and Ledwing Hernandez to do lead guitar. But this isn’t your band line-up.
No. I got them to write the music with me. I got them as studio musicians. You don’t play an instrument. How did you convey what you wanted to the band in the studio?
I sing. That’s the difficult part about it. It was very difficult at first. It was a learning process. It got easier as we went along. You still have to give creative direction. It’s all about communicating. What was the hardest part for you?
Juggling being the vocalist and writing the lyrics and getting the music to go in the direction I wanted it to go in — that was the biggest struggle. What sort of input did you get in the studio from the others?
I should specify, these guys were pretty much work for hire. I told them what I wanted, they gave me some ideas, and we went from there. In terms of what you wanted and what you got, how close did you come? Lisa Canarvis previously sang in local heavy bands Safety Off and Serenity Falls.

The beginning of The Beautiful Ending The Beautiful Ending REVERBNATION.COM/THEBEAUTIFULENDING [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Lisa Canarvis is a study in passion and intensity. Whether you get caught in her piercing gaze or walloped by the siren call of her lilting voice, Canarvis is riveting. But beneath the cool burn is the undeniably palpable excitement of her new project, The Beautiful Ending. Known for her vocal work in the local progmetal outfit Serenity Falls, or in the tensionrelease sledgehammer that was Safety Off, Canarvis has finally struck out on her own to get what’s inside out. She has assembled a crew of studio musicians to help realize this cathartic emotional export, and at this point is working with a revolving cast for the project’s upcoming debut and future shows. The Beautiful Ending just released its EP “One Step Closer,” a recording that illustrates 14 CITY SEPTEMBER 4-10, 2013
a restrained intensity coupled with a seething elegance. It is dynamic, densely picturesque, and urgent, with a veiled punch ensconced in velvet. Canarvis stopped by the City office to discuss the new EP, getting what’s in out, and everything that leads up to a beautiful ending. An edited transcript follows.
Was this a learning experience for you?
know how. I didn’t get a chance to do that in my other bands. It’s just about life and going through things and dealing with them. My first band we didn’t do stuff like that — it was more a collaborative effort. This is more personal to me. What are you writing about?
may sound kind of sappy, but I think we’re all looking for a beautiful ending.
I think it’s a lot of stuff people can relate to, to talk about things that make you uncomfortable. We all go through it, but it’s hard to say it.
How is this different from your past band experiences?
Did you get what you were looking for with this project?
I was in Serenity Falls for about four years, then Safety Off on and off for about a year and a half. Now this is my thing. It’s all my stuff.
Yes. I got what I was looking for. I contacted a few guys I had worked with in the past. Aaron Nicholson from Safety Off — I just love his tone and I love the way he plays. Then I contacted my old drummer from Serenity Falls, Rob Bodley, who was also in The Youngbloods for a couple of years, and bassist Greg

Is The Beautiful Ending scratching an itch the other bands couldn’t? What is that itch?
I think it’s tapping into those emotions that are inside that you want to get out but don’t
I got it pretty close. It came out better than I expected. I was impressed because I don’t think that happens very often. Sometimes though if it wasn’t something I wanted at first, it was often something that came out better. Even though you have a direction you want to go in, you can’t always expect to get there. You have to be open and you have to realize that you don’t know everything. In the end, either the music and notes come together or they don’t. I think it’s about the process as a whole. The Beautiful Ending is less heavy and more melodic than things we’ve heard from you previously. Why the shift?
It’s heavy but I don’t scream. I wasn’t interested in doing that; I wanted to sing on it. The screaming has been done.
Yeah, it’s been done. But I wanted to create something that was heavy but sounded nice at the same time. Something a little more standard 4/4, radio friendly. How do you describe it?
When people ask me what it sounds like, I tell them, “That’s for you to decide.” So the ending is beautiful. What about the beginning? What about the middle?
That’s where I am now…and it’s good.

HARDCORE | D.O.A.
D.O.A. is a band that has been around for more than three decades, and has achieved legendary status in the punk and hardcore scenes. With the onset of the album “Hardcore ’81,” led by singer and songwriter Joey “Shithead” Keithley, D.O.A. helped publicize and popularize the hardcore genre in the 80’s. The band has been well-respected and loved for both its music and its politics, being heavily involved in the anarchist scene and coining the phrase “talk minus action equals zero.” After 35 years of playing together, D.O.A. has decided to call it quits this upcoming year, and will be stopping at the Bug Jar as part of their farewell tour. D.O.A. performs with Bad Taste, The Emersons, and Borrowed Time on Tuesday, September 10, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $13-$15. bugjar.com.

A JOURNEY OF AWAKENING “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein, Nobel recipient, Mathematician, Quantum Physicist, Philosopher.

Local band Landmark claims that it writes “traditional Americana music for the modern ear.” Similar to bands such as Punch Brothers and Trampled by Turtles, Landmark takes Americana music and adjusts the sound to fit in a contemporary setting, while still retaining the best parts of the tradition. The band is made up of four talented musicians, whose immense talent adds to the complexity and flexibility of the music. In June, Landmark released its first self-titled EP, and it can be seen performing frequently throughout the Rochester area.

[ PREVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Greentopia began in 2011 as a two-day event. Now, just two years later, it has blossomed into a week-long multimedia festival that includes a conference, art exhibits, musical performances, and even a fashion show. Presented by Friends of the GardenAerial, the festival’s purpose is to educate and raise awareness for the environmental issues facing our modern society, promoting sustainability efforts on a local scale, and generally making Rochester a happier, greener place to live. Another major component of Greentopia is the film festival, held September 10-15. A fantastic six-day program of documentaries covering a variety of environmental topics, the films will be screened at five different venues around Rochester. Tickets for the films are $8 in advance and $10 at the door, with discounts available for groups and students, as well as full-festival pass options ($60-$75). Read on for our take on a sampling of the films, and check greentopiafest.com for a complete schedule of events and ticket information. Returning this year is the popular “Short Courses” program, which features four food-themed documentary shorts paired
20 CITY SEPTEMBER 4-10, 2013
with a corresponding four-course meal at Good Luck restaurant (and yes, the meal includes wine). Tickets to that event are $100, and it sold out last year, so make your reservations early. (Tuesday, September 10, 7 p.m.) Centered around the need for a drastic rethinking of traditional urban-planning models, “The Human Scale” uses the concepts of Danish city planner Jan Gehl to argue that cities need to be designed with an eye toward facilitating personal, human interaction and away from the compartmentalized, car-centric designs that have been the norm in city planning since the 1960’s. These ideas aren’t new (everyone and their mother has advocated for more public green spaces and easier walkability), but actually seeing them in action is fascinating. Director Andreas M. Dalsgaard takes his cameras to several cities around the world, allowing viewers to observe how the adoption of Gehl’s suggestions have impacted the way that people function, and drastically improved the standard of living of those who live there. (Wednesday, September 11, 7 p.m., Little Theatre 1) People like to complain about the lack of space in their homes, but with the spread of the Tiny House movement, that may soon be a thing of the past. Small homes (think an average of 150 square feet — so cozy!) are becoming increasingly popular with those looking to rid themselves of the excess stuff in their lives and get back to a simpler way
his attempt to build a small, portable home atop a trailer bed. He sets aside a few months for the project, but soon discovers that it’s more difficult and time-consuming than he’d imagined. Along the way he talks to some others who’ve successfully built their own tiny homes, and the effects it has had on their lives. (Friday, September 13, 5:15 p.m., Greenovation) After psychiatrist Clark Wang was diagnosed with terminal lymphoma, he naturally started thinking about his legacy. “A Will For the Woods” follows Wang (along with his sweetly positive wife, Jane) as he seeks his final resting place, and a method of getting there that will, in some small way, leave the world a better place than when he arrived in it. He’s enthusiastic about the idea of an environmentally neutral “green burial,” which forgoes embalming or a fancy casket and allows the deceased to be buried in a specially designated natural environment. Green burials are becoming more and more common. As someone in the film points out, it seems somewhat hypocritical that in life, we attempt to stay green, recycle, and decrease our carbon footprint, but then allow our bodies to be pumped full of chemicals once we die. With this method, there’s a way to ensure that the forest will always stay a forest even after we’re gone, and “Will For the Woods” pays moving tribute to the innate beauty behind that concept. (Friday, September 13, 7 p.m., Little Theatre 1) The inspirational “Maidentrip” chronicles the voyage of Laura Dekker, who at 13 years old dreamt of being the youngest person to sail around the world alone. Using the video footage Laura shot herself throughout the 519-day journey, the film turns into a comingof-age story of sorts, as Laura matures and comes to enjoy her newfound independence. The downside of relying on her personal documentation means we cut away during the most intense bits of action and miss her most challenging moments since she was, you know, busy sailing a ship. (Friday, September 13, 9:30 p.m., Little Theatre 2) Can we make it a rule that every film include narration by Jeremy Irons? In “Trashed,” the actor travels across the globe, making stops in cities that have been negatively impacted by the presence of landfills in order

to examine the deadly consequences of our throwaway culture. The film is illuminating as it presents some possible solutions to the situation in which we’ve found ourselves. But be prepared, there are some difficult-to-watch moments, including a particularly horrifying sequence in Vietnam investigating birth defects in Vietnam due to exposure to extreme amounts of dioxins. Luckily for audiences, the soothing sounds of Irons’ voice make the disturbing images slightly more palatable. (Saturday, September 14, 2 p.m., WXXI Studio A) With only a single library book as his teacher, Malawian teenager William Kamkwamba successfully built a working windmill that was able to power his family’s home and save them from the effects of famine. It’s an incredibly inspiring story, but Ben Nabors’ “William and the Windmill” has a little more on its mind than the simple warming of hearts. The film begins after Kamkwamba was “discovered” by American entrepreneur Tom Rielly at age 19 and brought to America, where the boy quickly became a media sensation. Nabors celebrates Kamkwamba’s endless imagination and innovative ability, but also manages to portray him in all his complexities. The film raises some thought-provoking questions as it acknowledges the opportunities the newfound notoriety provides him, but doesn’t shy away from the potential for his exploitation at the hands of rich, well-meaning white people. (Saturday, September 14, 4:30 p.m., WXXI Studio A) In the concert protest film “Dear Governor Cuomo,” a collection of activists, musicians, and celebrities (including Mark Ruffalo and singer
Natalie Merchant) lend their voices to implore our governor to ban hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) in New York State. Don’t expect an in-depth examination of the subject, but the film provides a nice overview of the dangers of fracking and a pretty awesome soundtrack to boot. (Sunday, September 15, 5 p.m., Little Theatre 1) Probably the documentary with the most unexpected thesis in the entire lineup, director Robert Stone’s “Pandora’s Promise” argues for the widespread use of nuclear power. Using interviews with a number of respected environmentalists who have changed their tunes about the energy source over the years, Stone argues that the process is just as safe as alternatives like solar or wind power. The film also blames the merging in our collective minds of nuclear power and destructive nuclear weapons for society’s aversion to the energy source, even going so far as to suggest that nuclear-energy protestors are akin to climate-change deniers (which frankly seems a bit harsh). Still, it makes for a fascinating and provocative viewing experience. (Sunday, September 15, 7:15 p.m., Little Theatre 1)

SPECIAL EVENT | GREENTOPIA FESTIVAL 2013
Looking for a reason to go green? Here’s a big one: Greentopia Festival 2013. The festival, which runs from September 10-15, is in its third year, and dedicated to all things sustainable. The festival evolved from a two-day event to a six-day event, in part because it offers pretty much every festival activity you could imagine. Greentopia 2013 encompasses a documentary film fest (see feature on page 20), a two-day summit on sustainability, a fashion show, various musical acts, events for kids, and food by local celebrity chefs. There are festivals within festivals within festivals. It’s like “Inception,” only with festivals instead of dreams. Prices will vary depending on what events you plan to attend. Check out greentopiafest.com to find a detailed schedule and ticket prices. You can also find out more by calling 287-5560. — BY TREVOR LEWIS in admission: $2.50-$6. 2768900. mag.rochester.edu.

Receive a Double Punch on your Coffee Club Card SPECIAL EVENT | A LATE SUMMER FETE GALA
Building that time machine didn’t quite work out for you? Worry not, because Writers & Books is bringing the past to you — 1920’s Paris, to be specific. On Saturday, September 7, the Nixon Peabody event space at 1300 Clinton Square will be transformed into Ernest Hemingway’s version of Paris. The event is inspired by Hemingway’s “A Moveable Feast,” memoirs recounting his time in Paris in the 1920’s. Entertainment includes live music by The Pickpockets, performances by local youth writers, and a silent auction. There will also be a vast array of food and drink, with Frenchthemed grazing stations, an open bar with beer, wine, and cocktail specials, and dessert and coffee to top it all off. Put on “Great Gatsby”-esque attire, and you’ll be set to enjoy this throwback event. A patron reception begins at 6 p.m., and the Summer Fete runs 7-11 p.m. Patron cost is $150, while tickets to the Summer Fete alone cost $100.

The recent revelations about the long history of the American government spying on its citizens through a variety of sophisticated methods make the appearance of the British film “Closed Circuit” especially relevant. Public knowledge and even tolerance of the myriad surveillance devices that observe and report on the actions of millions of people create an oddly acceptable level of

paranoia, as if to be watched in all sorts of situations were simply a normal function of everyday existence. Security cameras flicker everywhere — banks and businesses, traffic lights, public buildings, even ordinary households — insuring that none of us leads a truly private life. “Closed Circuit” deals with a terrorist bombing in a public market in London, an atrocity that a dozen or more security cameras capture at the opening of the movie, before the explosion blanks the screen. The rest of the movie shows the efforts of a couple of English lawyers to defend the young man, Emir Erdogan (Hasancon Cifci), accused of the crime and to discover the truth of the event, a task that reveals the injustices of the British system and the malevolence of its officials. The lawyers, Martin Rose (Eric Bana) and Claudia Simmons-Howe (Rebecca Hall), occupy unusual roles in the legal case. He serves as the defense attorney, while she is called the Special Advocate; although

they nominally work for the defendant, under the British system they are for some reason forbidden to communicate. In an additional complication, they once had an affair, a fact that makes them vulnerable to the sort of blackmail the government, which resists any exposure of the truth, exerts on every aspect of the case. As he studies the documents related to the case, Rose discovers a number of inexplicable facts, including the ease with which Erdogan, a convicted felon, entered England and his purchase of a Mercedes, which turn his defense into a detective story. In the process of his investigation, he realizes that the security services follow his every movement, spying on his entire life, tapping his phones, bugging his office, searching his apartment, watching him with some of the half a million surveillance cameras installed all over London, and even providing the taxicabs he uses; they also apparently murder the lawyer he replaces and an American journalist who provides him some important tips. The movie shows some of the differences between the English version of justice and our own, not only the anachronistic and ridiculous robes and wigs the judges and lawyers wear in court, but also the fact that the government routinely conducts secret trials closed to public and press and behaves with an arbitrary abuse of power.

[ PREVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
to the truth, he finds that he can trust almost nobody, from a casual acquaintance at a dinner party to a colleague and mentor. The strata of falsehood, betrayal, and danger suggest the work of one of England’s finest novelists, John le Carré, with some of that writer’s inclination to despair. Since so much of the plot involves stripping away layers of recent history, digging into paperwork, the painstaking work of research, the movie’s tension builds slowly and inexorably with a resolute avoidance of melodrama. Appropriately, the actors, particularly Eric Bana, perform their roles with impressive restraint; even the head of British intelligence and the smug Attorney General deliver their threats with understated menace. And of course they employ the justification of their behavior with the ancient excuse of tyrants everywhere — they act violently and criminally for reasons of state, to protect the nation and its people. In keeping with the darkness of its theme, much of the action in “Closed Circuit” takes place in shadow, in dimly lit rooms, the night time streets of London. The camera rarely shows the historic London that anyone knows, with only one important and decidedly ironic shot of Westminster Abbey, focusing mostly on the interiors and exteriors of the contemporary city, complete with policemen armed with submachine guns and those ubiquitous security cameras.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has raged for nearly four decades, and the issue is just divisive today as it was at the start. I’m not for a minute going to pretend that I understand all of the intricacies involved in the conflict, but it’s clear that each side has enough evidence of wrongdoing to keep the animosity burning for another four decades. What’s needed is a willingness on the part of all the interested parties to set aside violent histories and work toward a common ideal grounded in the shared desire for a peaceful future. One way to do that is to allow the voices of the ordinary people living amidst the violence, and desperate for its end, to be heard. This is the second year for the Witness Palestine film series, which continues its mission to shine a spotlight on the conflict and bring attention to the oppression faced by the Palestinian people as a result of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The series offers a program of documentary features, to be screened at The Little Theatre (plus “Going Against the Grain,” which will be shown at St. John
“5 Broken Cameras” screens Sunday at the Little as part of the Witness Palestine film series. PHOTO PROVIDED
Providing a strong start to the series is the eye-opening documentary “5 Broken Cameras.” Consisting of footage shot by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, the film is a heartbreaking firsthand account of life in an occupied territory. Originally having purchased a camera to document the 2005 birth of his son, Burnat decided to keep his camera trained on his fellow villagers as they staged nonviolent protests against the Israeli settlements, only to be faced again and again with a violent response from the Israel Defense Force. He kept at it over the course of the following five years, with a throughline centering around the events that led to the destruction of each of the five cameras for which the film is named. Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at last year’s Academy Awards, it’s ultimately a powerful and stirring piece of political activist filmmaking. (Sunday, September 8, 2 p.m.) The riveting winner of the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, “The Law in These Parts,” examines the legal foundation for the occupation of Palestine, through interviews with the lawyers and judges who built that foundation beginning in the 1960’s. Israeli-born director Ra’anan Alexandrowicz builds a solid case, showing how the laws originally intended to protect Israelis from violence gradually over time became a source of oppression themselves. (Monday, September 9, 6:45 p.m.) Much like it sounds, “Jerusalem… The East Side Story” focuses exclusively on the lives of Palestinian people in Eastern Jerusalem, documenting the displacement of the Palestinian people and providing a window into the isolation they feel. The film suffers a bit by not providing a
counterpoint, but the ultimate message is summed up best by one woman’s comment: “When the stones of Jerusalem become holier than its people, then doesn’t Jerusalem lose its holiness?” The film is accompanied by “Follow the Money,” which focuses on the international boycott of Israeli products as a form of protest against the country’s actions. (Sunday, September 15, 2 p.m.) The inspirational “The People and the Olive” follows a group of American activists who coordinate the 2012 Run Across Palestine, a five-day, 120-mile marathon run through the West Bank. Their goal is to raise awareness of the struggles Palestinian olive farmers face, as well as collect funds to replant the olive trees that have been destroyed in the creation of Israeli settlements. Though the runners immediately face aggression from Israeli military, they aren’t dissuaded from remaining hopeful that peace will win out in the end. (Monday, September 16, 6:45 p.m.) Taking the opposite approach as “Jerusalem… East Side Story,” to arguably much greater effect, is the moving documentary “Two Sided Story.” Director Tor Ben-Mayor’s film documents the “History through the Human Eye” project, which brings together 27 Palestinian and Israeli people, of all walks of life, to share and listen to one another’s stories and hopefully come to some form of understanding. By keeping the focus on the personal, maintaining an even-handed style, and showing how this method allows the participants to see eye-to-eye, the film emerges as the most optimistic in the series. (Sunday, September 22, 2 p.m.) Produced by Al-Jazeera, “Going Against the Grain” focuses on Israeli journalist Gideon Levy, a vocal critic of Israel’s occupation, and the ways his outspoken nature have made him a controversial figure in his native country.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Government in Action
— Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium, whose construction was financed in 1964 by borrowing $25 million (and untold more as part of a subway expansion to service the stadium), was demolished in 2004 and is but a memory to the city’s sports fans. However, nine years later, the city is still paying for it (though next year will retire the $25 million bond and nine years from now, the city hopes, will retire the stadium/subway bond). The city’s deputy controller told PhillyMag.com in June, profoundly, “When issuing a bond to build a facility, the debt payment on that bond should not outlast the facility.” — Inexplicable: The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety’s solution to its legendary long lines at driver’s license stations was to create “In Line Online” registration, which it introduced recently. Online registrants were beside themselves, however, when they arrived on time across the state, only to learn that In Line Online merely entitled them to a reserved place in the line for making future appointments to take their driver’s test. A spokesman acknowledged that In Line Online might have some kinks and thus would be closed temporarily. — Toronto is facing such a crippling backlog of challenges to parking tickets, reported the Toronto Star in August, that more than 73,000 citations from last year were still unresolved and that many cases were proceeding even less hurriedly. Mahmood-Reza Arab, a computer programmer who was ticketed for parking too close to a hydrant in 2005 and who has dutifully met all deadlines for making a proper challenge, was recently scheduled (again) for trial before a judge -- this month (September 2013). A spokesman
said the “normal” wait time for a court date is “only” 18 months. — “Rules Are for the Benefit of Us All”: Adhering to “federal regulations,” the Denver Housing Authority ordered the immediate ejection of the family of Sandra Roskilly (her mother and autistic son) -because Roskilly had been shot dead in a random homicide in August. The mother, who shared the apartment with Roskilly for 10 years, said she was told that once the head of household is no longer present (no matter the reason), the apartment must be forfeited. Said Roskilly’s astonished brother, “(T)here was no question in my mind that my mother would at least be able to finish out the lease.”
— Notwithstanding the city of Detroit’s various problems, residents still expect its police force to behave sensibly, but in July, a police commander’s office blundered, releasing to all officers a document concerning an order of form-fitting bulletproof vests. Each individual officer’s height and weight were on the email, but so were female officers’ bra cup sizes (which were initially necessary to assure body-armor fit so as not to restrict mobility -- but obviously were no one else’s business). — In August, prosecutors in Broward County, Fla., accused two Lauderhill police officers of an improper 2012 traffic stop, charging both patrolmen in the squad car with demanding favors from two female motorists. Officer Franklin Hartley allegedly demanded oral sex from the passenger, and his partner, Thomas Merenda, according to the charge, “asked the victim to punch him in the ‘nuts,’ meaning genital area.” Said Merenda’s lawyer, of the charge: “outrageous, outlandish and absurd.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 34 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Love is a changing playing field. Just when you think you have something in common with someone, you’ll lose interest as someone or something else catches your interest. Follow your heart until someone who really captivates you mentally, physically and emotionally comes along. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Participate in events that allow you to show your skills. Someone with the same mindset and life goals as you will pursue you in earnest, trying to impress you with similar traits. Don’t view this as a competition when you are actually being courted.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The person you are attracted to will not mesh well with your mind or your emotions, but when it comes to your physical needs, it will next to impossible to call a halt to your actions. Don’t make promises if you are likely to have a change of heart. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Bide your time and let the person you fancy come to you. Friendship is a great place to start. What grows naturally will have a much better chance to go the distance. Plan some fun adventures that allow you to get to know the object of your affection better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Go out and party or participate in activities that interest you. Meet and greet people from all walks of life, and share your thoughts, concerns and intentions. It won’t be long before you find someone as intense and eager to saddle up beside you mentally, physically and emotionally. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let the same person break your heart again. Let an old love go so that you can make a fresh start. Don’t let a force play stand between you and your happiness. Look for the companion who is willing to offer you equality. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will attract all sorts of lovers,
but before you decide to take the plunge with someone showing interest, consider why you have chosen this particular person. Motives must be honorable, and your head and your heart must agree that you are making the right move. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful when it comes to love. Secret affairs and attracting someone who belongs to another are likely to develop if you let your emotions and physical needs take over. Honesty is a must if you don’t want to face hurt, jealousy and a disastrous end to a fairytale beginning. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Love at first sight is pos-
sible but probably based on a physical attraction that will disperse as you get to know the current love of your life better. Don’t let a chameleon capture your heart only to find out that you have little in common to hold you together. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When it comes to love, it will all boil down to who has what and how you can grow as a couple. Problems will develop if you put too much importance on what someone has instead of who that person is. Fair play and honesty should be what counts. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The person who offers you
adventure, experimentation, innovative interaction and intimacy will capture your heart. You will move quickly into a situation that will change the way you live. Legal, financial and personal concerns should be thought through carefully before you proceed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Meeting someone will not be the problem; however, trying to be true to who you are may be difficult if you are mesmerized by who someone is or what’s being offered. Step back and make sure your motives are based on true love and not on assumptions or expectations.
