In 1940, with German U-boats blockading all commerce across the Atlantic Ocean, a fireball at the Crown Cork and Seal factory lit the sky over Baltimore. The newspapers said that you could see its glow from Philadelphia. Rumors of Nazi sabotage led to an FBI investigation and pulled an entire industry into the national security web as America stood on the brink of war.

 Join us for the release of the new book CORK WARS: INTRIGUE AND INDUSTRY IN WORLD WAR II in the Creative Alliance Marquee Lounge! Author David Taylor will present his new book joined by Kiley Kraskousas (director FlowState Films) and Amy Johanson (film researcher), who helped to create several short films to accompany the book.

What is permanent? What are the artifacts we will leave behind? What happens to the lightweight, inconsequential objects we call disposable but are in fact as enduring as the things we intend to last? What is the permanent nature of these temporary objects of convenience, many of which sustain our existence but cost so little to produce they are often given away? Once disposed of, these objects cease to exist in our minds, but they continue to exist somewhere else, somewhere out of sight. How do we reconcile their transience in our lives with their longevity in the world? This work seeks to understand these objects by transforming them, by seeing them in new terms -- perhaps in the way the rest of the natural world sees them, rather than how we do.

Said to be the first full-length science-fiction movie ever made, this influential film about space travel by the Soviet filmmaker Yakov Protazanov is re-imagined by avant guitarist Marc Ribot with a new score that premiered at London’s Meltdown Festival, Royal Festival Hall.
