FREE Public Screening of FRAME BY FRAME

Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 7: 00 PM

This unique free event will take place at the University at Albany East Campus, in the School of Public Health (One University Place, Rensselaer, NY 12144) Auditorium. Following the screening, a discussion will take place featuring those from or experience with the country of Afghanistan.

Please join the International Center of the Capital Region and the Center for Global Health, with the generous support of the Office of International Education and the Global Institute for Health and Human Rights for a FREE public screening of the Oscar Nominated Documentary, FRAME BY FRAME.

For questions or additional information,
please contact the International Center at (518) 708-7608 or [email protected]

This screening should not be missed. Synopsis:
When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, taking a photo was a crime. After the regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerged and a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, FRAME BY FRAME follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape – reframing Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves. Through cinema vérité, intimate interviews, powerful photojournalism, and never-before-seen archival footage shot in secret during the Taliban regime, the film connects audiences with four humans in the pursuit of the truth.

General information

HISTORY OF SUNY/CID In 1986, the State University of New York Chancellor Clifford Wharton hired SUNY professor of Geography and former Peace Corps official Reynold Bloom as the Associate Vice Chancellor for International Programs, with a mandate to expand the mission of the Office of International Programs (OIP) to encompass work in institutional development with universities, governments, and civil society organizations in developing and transition countries. SUNY/OIP To this technical assistance and training mission in institutional strengthening, the SUNY system brought a unique combination of resources and expertise from community and technical colleges, PhD granting universities, and centers of excellence in life sciences and agriculture, environmental sciences, business, and economic development. A core objective was the transfer of tools for practical policy analysis that could raise the quality of public management and public policy discourse in beneficiary countries. In particular, SUNY/OIP initiated projects with a number of universities in Latin America and Eastern Europe that developed research and training centers to support a variety of projects in economic growth and democratic development. In Chile, SUNY/OIP launched CEAL, the Centro de Estudios e Assistencia Legislativa—the major provider, even to this day, of external training and research for the Congress of Chile. It launched similar institutional development initiatives in other countries, including those with the Brazilian National Research Council, the Budapest Technical University, and the Moscow based Academy of Management. SUNY/IDG In the 1990s, OIP’s development assistance unit evolved into the SUNY International Development Group (SUNY/IDG), which responded to the “third wave of democratization” with increasing numbers of international projects in economic development, environmental policy, governance, and civil society strengthening. By the end of the decade, the organization had developed substantial expertise in legislative strengthening, and implemented over 60 projects in more than 30 countries, many of them in this particular area of strength. The organization continued to work closely with OIP on building linkages to a wide range of universities and faculties around the world, fostering exchanges and collaboration on a number of projects. SUNY/CID In 2002, IDG was renamed the SUNY Center for International Development (SUNY/CID). Since that time, SUNY/CID has been the leading USAID-funded provider of legislative strengthening expertise around the world, and since the late 1990s, is funded solely by contracts and grants awarded by national and international development agencies and charitable foundations. By the end of the last decade, SUNY/CID had implemented more than 100 projects on five continents with a total collective value of more than $186 million, through awards from the U.S. Agency for International Development, the World Bank, UK Department for International Development, Inter-American Development Bank, United Nations Development Programme, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, U.S. Department of State, Organization of American States, Pew Charitable Trusts, Ford Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Tinker Foundation. SUNY/CID historyIn 2007, SUNY/CID became affiliated with the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy in SUNY’s University at Albany. One of the top public affairs schools in the United States, Rockefeller College allows the Center to draw on the rich academic resources of the College’s students and faculty, as well as a number of other centers at the College and the University at Albany, including the Center for Technology in Government, the Center for Women in Government and Civil Society, and the Intergovernmental Studies Program. Several Center staff teach at the College and help pursue a research agenda spanning several discrete areas of public management and institutional development. In its new academic home, the Center continues to develop its practical understanding of the complexities of institutional strengthening and evaluation work in the governance arena—an understanding that complements and informs its growing research and analytical agenda.
