Thursday, July 13, 6:30  – 8:45pm,  Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, NY.  Film:  “Ithaka: a father, a family, a fight for justice.” (111 minutes, 2022 ) .  This is a documentary that follows John Shipton’s journey around the globe and his advocacy for his son, Julian Assange, in the face of legal battles and media glare. It is  a moving and intimate portrayal of one father’s fight to save his son. “Ithaka” exposes the brutal realities of the campaign to free Julian Assange. Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks and the world’s most famous political prisoner, who has become a symbol in the international struggle for freedom of journalism, government corruption, and accountability for war crimes.  With Julian now facing a potential 175-year sentence if extradited to the US, his family members are confronted with the harrowing possibility of losing him forever within the depths of the US justice system. This David-and-Goliath struggle has become deeply personal, especially considering Julian’s deteriorating health in a British maximum-security prison, adding urgency to the situation.  Joe Lombardo will lead us in a discussion, following the film.   More Information: 518-466-1192
