Special Guest:Â Â Jim Crotty, Documentary Filmmaker
Tonight’s Hollywood Salon will give you a sneak peek at several brand new powerful documentaries…
First up, Forbes Education ColumnistÂ James Marshall CrottyÂ will unveil his witty and insightful short documentary,Â MASTER DEBATERS, plus a sneak peek atÂ 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 â€œHow To Talk American,â€ â€œThe USA Phrasebook,” and co-author with Michael Lane of â€œMad Monks on the Road,â€ â€œThe Mad Monksâ€™ Guide to New York City,â€ and â€œThe Mad Monksâ€™ Guide to California.â€
Also tonight, Kathleen Carr will show the trailer for her doc,Â THIS IS JIM, about the grass roots campaign of a man running for Governor in the California Recall Election.
Hope to see you tonightÂ at the Culver.
Salons are a great way to network, catch upÂ with old friends and new ones, and have a taste of home in Hollywood.
