September Williams' BIOETHICS SCREEN REFLECTIONS -Remember the Loving Decision and Families

Author GiGi Panderian ( the Accidental Alchemist and others) sent a note today reminding me that this is the day that the Loving Decision was handed down by the US supreme court confirming the right to marry and have children under the 4th Amendment of the United States and the 16th Article of the Declaration of human rights. of the Declaration of Human Rights. This is the Anniversary of the Loving Decision in the USA supreme court.Confirming the right to marry and have family as outlined in Article 16 of the Declaration of Human Rights.

It was only in 1968 that the Supreme Court of the USA ruled that interracial marriage is legal to see my the two-part review--and be aware that we, at this time, on this date of today as a nation are moving backward in terms of family protections under the law--if we do not stop it. Have you checked the news today to see what is being done in our name? see both parts of the review Part I and 2 — then watch the movie and recommit to justice for families that are being torn asunder.

Copy of September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury on YOUR INNER TYPEWRITER WITH SCOTT CALHOUN

I had a great time with The Inner Typewriter author-host Scott Calhoun taping three episodes. He wanted to know how writers should think about bioethics. I used as an example EVENING AT THE GARDEN and some Prime Time TV shows. Please Follow, Share and Subscribe to the Inner Type Writer. We also talked a bit about Chasing Mercury and it’s underpinnings in bioethics. It’s a fun show that has writers talk/think about things of interest to—well—other writers. Also Scott is a typewriter collector. Think of the film CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER where I learned Tom Hanks (among others) Collect typewriters and I’ve been planning to go to Berkely to the store ever since!The typewriter on the desk was the same model that I learned to type on at my grandmother’s house when I was five! Great Coffee and donuts too on the set.

NEW REVIEW ON SEPTEMBER WILLIAMS' BIOETHICS SCREEN REFLECTIONS: ROMA Bioethics and the Mobius Loop

NEW REVIEW ON  SEPTEMBER WILLIAMS' BIOETHICS SCREEN REFLECTIONS: ROMA Bioethics and the Mobius Loop

ROMA: Bioethics and the Mobius Loop

It is difficult to describe the number of ways that writer-director Alfonso Cuaron’s semi-biographical ROMA represents an Ichthian leap in cinema. There are no special effects to speak of, no costumes except at a New Year’s Eve party cum fire. To compare the film with the level of change that Italian Neorealism presented in the middle of the last century seems strident, yet true. Equally valid is the sense that this film represents the 7th Art at its best in both the creative and technical expression of cinema. There is not a super hero among them — but a sense of magic at the level of Murakami’s Wind Up Bird  Chronicle or Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle.  It is a universal film from the soul of a Spanish master.

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Paco the Dreamer

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury Paco the Dreamer

 From  Chasing Mercury, Chapter 17, San francisco Bay 1969-1972

“Paco often traveled through the back alleys of Venice, as he had that night, to reach our house. He tried the back door. Locked, as it should have been, he started to knock. That was when he heard the sound of our front windows shattering. Kicking the door open, he had a line of sight through the living room to the front yard. Two unfamiliar shadows held cigarette lighters. Whoosh, whoosh—Molotov cocktails, gasoline soaked cloth wicks in Coke bottles, flew through the already broken glass.

September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury- Blood River, Summer 1965-1968 vs Watts Community Health Center 2017.

“HOT ENOUGH TO BLISTER THE skin, the Santa Ana Winds ravaged Los Angeles. Sirens raced down Manchester to the hospital on the other side of the cul-de-sac. They were loud and frequent, stopping us from opening the windows to let even the hot breeze blow through. From the ranch house picture window we could see black clouds from fires burning eight miles south. Newscasters called it a riot. Later, the people who lived in that part of the city, and history, would call it The Watts Uprisings.

September Williams' Chasing Mercury, the Great Lake Michigan, mercury  + Krypton

 Lake Michigan has always been important to me. It comforted me after long nights on call when seeing it the next evening as I headed home. I looked out at it with my first cup of morning coffee from my balcony. But Environment Illinois explains, Lake Michigan has been something of a dumping ground for years.

September Williams' Chasing Mercury and the Nun with the Diamond twinkle eyes...

This weekend I had the honor of attending a young friends First Communion at the San Rafael Mission in Marin County. People do not generally think of me as Catholic for good reason.  The character Sicily Marshall in Chasing Mercury reflects a bit of mine in an excerpt from Chasing Mercury, Chapter 15, Santa Monica Bay 1960-1962...

Chasing Mercury, Chapter 5, 'Bohemian Forest Water Shed, July 1973'

As the sun rises, the bus crosses the River Spree, pulling through the gates of Berlin’s Humboldt University. Hundreds of young adults perch in the stone courtyard, some hanging from the balcony, guarded by marble pillars and neoclassical Roman roof sculptures. Guitars in hand, a chorus of ‘C’s serenade them—Cape Verdeans, Cambodians, Cameroonians, Czechs, Chileans, Colombians, Costa Ricans and Cubans. They greet the tardy Canadians, voices filling the sweltering damp dawn with Cat Stevens’s song Baby, Baby It’s a Wild World--
