Coming up this weekend at the CME...


*Saturday, October 27 | 3:00 - 5:00 PMReport From a Brazil in Crisis*
Gary Dotterman
Gary Dotterman, the former director of the CME, currently lives in Minas
Gerais, Brazil. The region boasts the largest concentration of industrial
workers in the Western Hemisphere, including the biggest integrated steel
plant and massive mines. With Brazil in economic and political crisis, the
Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB) is organizing, and running candidates.
Gary will report.


*Sunday, October 28 | 6:00 PMBeginning of The Great Revival*
Richard Pendleton, CME Steering Committee
"Beginning of the Great Revival", known as "The Founding of a Party" in
China and a companion piece to 2009's blockbuster The Founding of a
Republic, details the historic events surrounding what is referred to as
the Chinese Revolution, the period from 1911 to 1921, when Sun Yat-sen
overthrew the Qing Dynasty and planted the roots of what has become today's
Chinese Communist government. The story shows the beginnings of the
country's most influential first-generation leaders, including Mao Zedong,
Chiang Kai-shek and Zhou Enlai. Just as The Founding of a Republic did, the
film, features a cast of China's biggest box office names such as Liu Ye,
Chang Chen, Chen Kun, Andy Lau, Daniel Wu and John Woo. *Watch the
