On October 2, 2008, the Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit program dedicated and celebrated two new wall panels that will be on permanent display on the northeast corner of Washington and Ashley streets. Speakers at the event include Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje, Thomas Aprill, grandson of Theophil Aprill; John Metzger, third generation owner of Metzger's Restaurant; and Ray Detter, Street Exhibit coordinator. The panels cover the topics "From Horses to Cars: Early Autos, Service and Parts" and "Three Generations of Metzgers on Washington Street."
Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. As he filmed his son, growing from newborn baby into a young boy, Emad's video camera, and a succession of later cameras, were violently destroyed over five years of turmoil..
5 Broken Cameras, the first-ever Palestinian film nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, is a deeply personal, first-hand account of life and non-violent resistance in a West Bank village. It will be screened at the Downtown Library on Tuesday December 10 at 7:00 pm.
