"Korkoro" (Freedom)

2009, France, 111 minutes
French with English subtitles

'A magnificent paean to the mad ecstasy of
freedom... Tony Gatlif's depiction of the 'Gypsy soul'
has never been more visceral."— Variety magazine

Dr. Harry Ostrer

Legacy: A Genetic History of the
Jewish People


Who are the Jews? A race? A people? Both Jews
and gentiles have tried to pinpoint a collective
Jewish identity through physical anthropology
and genetics.

If you missed the sold-out screening at the Traverse
City Film Festival this past summer, here is your
opportunity to experience a lesser-known piece of
history. Based on actual events, this passionate
WWII drama tells the story of a close-knit Gypsy family as they journey
through occupied France trying to avoid the violent Vichy patrols.
Told through humor, emotional dialogue and filmed in the gorgeous
French countryside,"Korkoro" shows the Romany people's joy and
struggle to remain free.

Medical geneticist Harry Ostrer explores the history
of these efforts. Bringing together threads from
Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and India, this unique work
situates Jews in the grand scheme of genetic analysis.

Dr. Harry Ostrer is a professor of Pathology and Genetics at Albert
Einstein Colege of Medicine and director of Genetic and Genomic
Testing at Montefiore Medical Center. He previously served as director
of Human Genetics at New York University School of Medicine.

Business Breakfast with Ken Segall

Insanely Simple: The Obsession
That Drives Apple's Success

Although the success of Apple is well-known,
the reasons for this are less understood. The answer is
suprisingly simple.

Best-selling author and director of the UCLA Longevity Center, Dr. Small
was named one of the world's leading innovators in science and
technology by Scientific American. He appears frequently on "Today,"
"Good Morning America," PBS and CNN.

Steve Jobs built Apple based on a simple business model;
traditional complex business practices were not tolerated. The power
of"simplicity" as a business model can be used in any organization.

12:30-1 p.m.

Ken Segall is an advertising executive who worked closely with Steve Jobs
for more than 12 years. He started the i-frenzy by naming iMac and helped
develop Apple's famous Think DIFFERENT campaign. Having also served
tours of duty with Dell and Intel, Segall is uniquely qualified to point out
the stark contrasts between the practices of Apple and other iconic
technology companies.

Enjoy a light, healthy snack. Resource specialists affiliated with DMC
will be available to answer questions.

1:15 p.m.

What is normal? What is abnormal? According to
Dr. Smoller, "psychiatry has ignored the normal. What is the biology
of normal? By understanding what the mind was designed to do in the
first place, we can demystify mental illness and build a new foundation
for defining psychiatric disorders — from autism to depression!'
