Dirty Wars is opening in New York City, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles on Friday, June 7, and many other cities nationwide soon after.
The film features independent journalist Jeremy Scahill, the New York Times bestselling author of Blackwater and now Dirty Wars (the book of the same title as the film).
The film won the Cintematography Prize at Sundance. Variety says it is “astonishingly hard-hitting” and adds: “This jaw-dropping, persuasively researched pic has the power to pry open government lockboxes.”

But before I wrote that piece, I found myself thinking back to the first time I lived in London, when I was twenty years old. Back when Britain really was brand new to me. It was an amazing six months, partly because of my beloved English professor David Young, who took me and twenty other Oberlin students to London. He introduced us to the theater, but more than that, to good living and a certain relaxed relationship to intelligent conversation … he showed us that a life of the mind is a life of joy.

Greetings everyone! I’m in the process of uploading some of the Oberlin College Choir recordings from the 50’s and 60s under Robert Fountain on Youtube. I think it’s a beautiful group and I’d love to share it with you all. I don’t have that many recordings but if anyone has any recordings they’d like to share please do so! I’d also love it if people would share their experiences with Fountain either at Oberlin, Univ of Wisconsin - Madison, or the other places he taught.
