Film Screening: Storm Lake
Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Art Cullen and his family fight to unite and inform their Iowan farming community through their biweekly newspaper, The Storm Lake Times — come hell or pandemic. Dark clouds hang over the cornfields of Storm Lake, Iowa, which has seen its fair share of change in the 40 years since Big Agriculture came to town. Farmers blow their life savings on new equipment they hope will keep their livelihoods intact. Migrant workers flock here — welcome and not — for their slice of the American Dream. The people of Storm Lake confront a changing and precarious existence. Enter: Art Cullen and his family members who deliver local news and editorials on a shoestring budget for their 3,000 readers. This paper means a fighting chance for their beloved hometown, and by hook or by crook, they’ll make the most of it. There’s simply too much at stake. See a preview of Storm Lake!

The Reminders are a rare and remarkable musical trio seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born Big Samir who weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow which is beautifully complimented by Aja Black’s unique vocal stylings. Asad Ali Jafri rounds out the trio, using a grassroots approach and global perspective to connect artists and communities across imagined boundaries to create meaningful experiences. More than a shade of the same color that we see time and time again, The Reminders transcend the bounds of what is expected. Their energy and stage presence leave crowds in awe, allowing the duo to uplift and entertain all at once. Their unique mashup of raw, soulful vocals and reggae-tinged hip hop beats form the perfect backdrop for their relevant and inspiring themes, leaving a lasting impression on listeners.
