This lecture explores how the inherently narrative character of history allows for cinematic representation to play such a dominant role in how history is known. Questions to be raised include what role film plays in our engagement with history, how movies both illuminate and distort our knowledge of the past and why increased access to media content via Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services warrants greater media literacy to decode the making of the story of our past. This lecture is presented by Falk Cammin, Humanities Mellon Scholars Program Director of Foothill College.Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay.
Join us for a peaceful journey through four miles of the Picchetti Ranch Preserve. We will walk on shady trails lush with ferns, large Oak and California Bay trees and Madrones, which lead to views of Stevens Creek Reservoir and the hillside to the east. After passing an old Apricot, Plum, and Pear orchard and a petite pond, we reach the winery where will eat a leisurely lunch at the historic Picchetti estate before our gradual downhill return trip. Wine tasting is optional.
