Israeli Film Series
Oct 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Bucknell University’s Israeli Film Series continues Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. with the film Footnote in the Gallery Theatre (Room 301) of the Elaine Langone Center.

The film, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by Campus Jewish Life and Hillel with support from Kalman Jewish Life & Learning Fund.

Directed by Joseph Cedar, Footnote portrays the troubled relationship between a father and his son who both teach at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Uriel is a young popular academic who is elected to the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. His father, Eliezer, is an unpopular and frustrated academic whose research is published by a rival scholar one month ahead of his own.

Eliezer receives a phone call that he has won the Israel Prize but Uriel later discovers the caller meant to speak to him instead of his father. Uriel works behind the scenes to allow his father to be awarded the prize, and shares the truth with his mother, who promises to keep the secret.

Footnote won the Best Screenplay Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and won nine prizes at the 2011 Ophir Awards, becoming Israel’s entry for the 84th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film and named as one of the nine shortlisted entries for the Oscars. In 2012, the film was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Foreign Film.

The third movie in the Israeli Film Series is scheduled for Nov. 19. Waltz with Bashir, directed by Ari Folman, will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center.

Skitol Addresses Current Antitrust Issues at Susquehanna
Oct 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Robert Skitol, senior partner in the antitrust team at Drinker, Biddle & Reath LLP, will present the lecture Trust Me? The Shifting Sands of Antitrust Law and Policy, 1890–2014, on Oct. 30. Sponsored by the Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society at Susquehanna University, the free, public lecture begins at 7 p.m. in Faylor Hall, located in Fisher Hall.

Combining his practice in the field of antitrust law with a lifelong study of American history, Skitol examines the vital but underappreciated role that antitrust law and policy has played in the economic, political and social evolution of our society. More fundamentally, he explores the importance of antitrust policy to the preservation of democratic values and democracy itself, in addition to the threat presented to these values when antitrust enforcement is remiss.

Skitol co-authored the book Mergers in the New Antitrust Era, contributed to Business Opportunities in the United States, and founded and co-edited International Merger Law. He is a former attorney-adviser to the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission and former special assistant to the director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection. He has litigated major antitrust cases, and guided numerous mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures through intensive antitrust reviews at the trade commission and the U.S. Department of Justice. His clients have included Hewlett-Packard Co., Agilent Technologies, The Stroh Brewery Co., James Hardie Industries and Susquehanna Broadcasting Co.

The Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society was established in 2001 by the family of Sigfried and Janet Weis and The Degenstein Foundation of Sunbury, Pa., with support from the Annenberg Foundation, to honor prominent Philadelphia jurist Arlin M. Adams, whose distinguished legal career includes 17 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

The center exposes and explores the rich intersections between law and the various other disciplines in our society, and provides a forum and research opportunities for students to examine issues impacting human rights and social responsibility, involving science and technology, and requiring constitutional interpretation.
