In thinking about the potential effects of the city and county's 2012 budgets on the suburbs, Eight Forty-Eight speaks to Tinley Park Mayor Ed Zabrocki and Lincolnwood Mayor Jerry Turry about the potential costs facing their residents. Then, Eight Forty-Eight revisits a 2010 interview with filmmakers Dan Goldman and Robert Flaxman. Their documentary, A Labor of Love, follows the making of a porn film in Chicago in the mid-1970s. Plus, DePaul University’s Carolyn Bronstein discusses her new book, Battling Pornography, which examines grassroots feminist efforts in the 1970s and 1980s to control the spread of sexually violent images of women in media. And, Dr. Jose Francisco Salgado, an astronomer and visual artist, joins Eight Forty-Eight in studio to talk about the debut of his latest piece with the Chicago Sinfonietta, Moonrise.
