Tonight is NCC SALON with Jim Crotty & his new doc

TONIGHT: Monday, July 8th, 2013
Hollywood Salon
Special Guest:  Jim Crotty, Documentary Filmmaker

Tonight’s Hollywood Salon will give you a sneak peek at several brand new powerful documentaries…

First up, Forbes Education Columnist James Marshall Crotty will unveil his witty and insightful short documentary, MASTER DEBATERS, plus a sneak peek at CROTTY’S KIDS, his just-completed, and deeply inspiring, feature doc about mentorship and debate as antidotes to the U.S. dropout epidemic.

Afterwards, please join Jim for a discussion about the power of debate and documentary to change the world.

CROTTY’S KIDS follows six urban debaters from the South Bronx and their unlikely coach (Crotty himself). Told with humor and suspense, the film follows this unlikely team of debaters as they evolve from content-light amateurs to critical thinking heavyweights.

Omaha-native Jim Crotty is an acclaimed writer and media entrepreneur, best known as cofounder, editor, and publisher of Monk: the Mobile Magazine. He is the author of several books, including “How To Talk American,” “The USA Phrasebook,” and co-author with Michael Lane of “Mad Monks on the Road,” “The Mad Monks’ Guide to New York City,” and “The Mad Monks’ Guide to California.”

Also tonight, Kathleen Carr will show the trailer for her doc, THIS IS JIM, about the grass roots campaign of a man running for Governor in the California Recall Election.

Hope to see you tonight at the Culver.
Salons are a great way to network, catch up with old friends and new ones, and have a taste of home in Hollywood.
