The library’s series continues on Wednesday, July 17, with the 2012 film “We’re Not Broke.” This film deals with how U.S. lawmakers have been slashing the federal budget, thereby laying off public servants such as firemen and teachers, while large corporations have been storing profits overseas to avoid paying federal taxes. The film follows seven Americans who have decided to take action against what they see as an injustice.

 

On Wednesday, August 21, the series concludes with the film “Wonder Women!” The film develops and demonstrates the evolution of arguably the most famous superheroine, Wonder Woman. Beginning from the superheroine’s inception in the 40’s up to today with the attempted television series, the documentary ties Wonder Woman’s with society’s feelings towards women’s liberation.
