Dense clouds obscured the targets, and one commander’s critical decision to circle three times over the city-and its deadly flak-would prove disastrous. Forty-five planes went down that day, and hundreds of men were lost or missing.Focusing on first-person accounts of six of the B-17 airmen, award- winning author Robert Mrazek vividly re-creates the fierce air battle- and reveals the astonishing valor of the airmen who survived being shot down, and the tragic fate of those who did not

THE LITTLE TRAITOR In Person: Long Island-raised Filmmaker LYNN ROTH at 7pm  $9 Members / $13 Public / No Refunds. Based on the novel Panther in the Basement by the world renowned author Amos Oz, Little Traitor takes place in 1947 Palestine, just a few months before Israel becomes a state. Proffy Liebowitz, a militant yet sensitive twelve year old, has grown up under British occupation and wants nothing more than for the occupying British to get out of his land. Proffy and his two friends are always plotting ways to terrorize the British until one evening, while he’s out after curfew; Proffy is seized by Sergeant Dunlop (Alfred Molina). Instead of arresting him, Sergeant Dunlop escorts him back home and a friendship begins to develop in the following weeks. Proffy starts to consider Dunlop a father figure, as his own father is cold and remote. Dunlop, lonely and poetic, loves the spirited boy and reads the Book of Samuel, Dunlap’s favorite part of the Bible. Proffy helps Dunlap with his Hebrew while Dunlap teaches Proffy difficult English words and provides the fatherly guidance missing in Proffy’s life. As neighborhood tensions escalate between the British and the underground Jewish rebellion, their relationship becomes increasingly complicated. While Proffy has learned a great deal from his mentor, he is also shunned by his friends for this friendship and thus called a “traitor” by his neighbors and community. The resulting trial and shock that he could have such genuine affection for his “enemy” will change Proffy’s life forever. USA/Israel, 2010, 88 min. Director/Writer: Lynn Roth, based on the book by Amos Oz Cast: Alfred Molina, Ido Portsky.

NO IMPACT MAN Presented by The Harvard Club of Long Island Film + Panel Discussion: The Sustainability of the Long Island Environment at 11am$9 Members / $13 Public / No Refunds. Panelists: Adrienne Esposito, Executive Director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment, Eric Alexander, Vision Long Island, Larry Foglia, Natural Resources Consulting and Chuck Schwartz, LI Green. Join us for a screening of the documentary No Impact Man which follows one man’s year long project to have zero environmental impact. Colin Beavan decides to eliminate his impact on the environment for the next year. It means eating vegetarian, buying only local food, and turning off the refrigerator. It also means no elevators, no television, no cars, and no garbage – but he and his family live in Manhattan. So when his wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray, the No Impact Project has an unforeseen impact of its own. Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein’s film provides an intriguing inside look into the experiment that became a national fascination, while examining the strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colin and Michelle’s struggle with their radical lifestyle change. The film will lead us to a larger discussion of the region’s air, water and earth and local projects that threaten or enhance these resources. Panelists will highlight both the grassroots and institutional initiatives dedicated to preserving and enhancing Long Island’s environmental future, considering wind power, solar power, air and water pollution as well as food production and local programs designed to address these concerns.
