Feel good again about voting

If you were 40 before you had your first right to vote, maybe you wouldn't take it for granted.

If you were 40 before you had your first right to vote, maybe you wouldn't take it for granted.  That's the case for Eli, in the short film FOR SPACIOUS SKY, whose incarceration and parole prevented him from voting.  Based on the true story of a road trip to deliver one to rehab, three brothers begin to mend the divide that had grown between one another---as the country did---on election day '08.  Los Angeles-based Director Coy Middlebrook and local Co Producer Andrea Foertsch will screen the film at Haley House Bakery Cafe, Roxbury as part of the Art is Life Itself series on Thursday, 11/1 at 7pm and at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston on Saturday, 11/3 at 1pm.  www.forspaciousskythefilm.com

How often have differing political views caused a problem? Have differences in red and blue beliefs caused an argument with a loved one, or even ended a relationship? As the election season draws to a close, we’re left with the aftermath to clean up hurt feelings and disgruntled neighbors. In a neighborhood as diverse as Jamaica Plain, I am positive that opposing political views ranging from the Presidential election to local issues caused some rifts, and I would love to hear about them. My name is Cerise Castle, and I’m reporting for Emerson College about the detrimental effects of partisan politics has had on our local community. If you have a story to tell, I would love to hear it. Please contact me via e-mail: cerise_castle@emerson.edu if you would like to tell. Thank you!
