Blood doesn't get much bluer than that which courses through the veins of Karl von Habsburg, Imperial Prince and Archduke of Austria, Royal Prince of Hungary and Bohemia and Master of the Order of the Golden Fleece. But among his many glittering honors, his greatest title might be "Monuments Man." Like the characters in the recent film starring George Clooney, Archduke Karl works to save cultural artifacts and historical sites in danger of destruction. A widely acknowledged specialist on international humanitarian law and cultural heritage protection, his current work is focused on crisis-ravaged parts of Africa and the Middle East. Come meet a living link to the past (he is a descendant of Archduke Ferdinand whose assassination ignited World War I) and hear more about his fascinating present-day work. Learn More

Inside Job, Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary (Feature)
Charles Ferguson, Documentary Filmmaker,_ Inside Job_ and _No End in Sight _
Adam Lashinsky, Senior Editor at Large, _Fortune _magazine – Moderator
Could the global economic meltdown of the last few years have been prevented? Academy award-nominated filmmaker Ferguson believes that the crisis was no accident. His latest documentary, Inside Job, makes the powerful case that an out-of-control finance industry took advantage of a deregulated atmosphere and purposely sought to get rich at the expense of others.
Through extensive interviews with financial insiders and government officials, Ferguson crossed the globe to find proof that the financial industry intentionally engaged in unethical behavior. His gripping account of the global recession is sure to evoke feelings of disgust, anger, and concern that this all may happen again unless our regulatory system is changed. Ferguson’s previous film, No End in Sight, was nominated for an Oscar. Inside Job is already being touted as an early favorite to win this year’s award for Best Documentary (Feature).
