They're leading schools that redirect our focus away from homework, prizes, top grades and test scores.

By putting innovative models into practice, they're finding inspiration in doing things differently - and changing how and what we teach.

February 28th, 2015 at 12:30pm-9pm

 

Climate Refugees 12:00pm

 

Climate Refugees (95 minutes) There is a new phenomenon in the global arena called "Climate Refugees." A climate refugee is a person displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters. Such disasters result from incremental and rapid ecological change, resulting in increased droughts, desertification, sea level rise, and the more frequent occurrence of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, cyclones, fires, mass flooding and tornadoes. All this is causing mass global migration and border conflicts. For the first time, the Pentagon now considers climate change a national security risk and the term climate wars is being talked about in war-room like environments in Washington D.C.)

 

The Fight for Water: A Farm Worker Struggle 2:20pm

 

The Fight for Water: A Farm Worker Struggle (78 minutes) A historical documentary, set during the 2009 California Water Crisis, which documents the plight of the farmer and the farm worker as they struggled to get access to water. Two California Central Valley farmers (George Delgado and Joe Del Bosque), who came from migrant farm workers and whose life's dream had been of being a farmer, take a filmmaker (Juan Carlos Oseguera) around their impacted lands to document how water restrictions and environmental regulations, since 1992, have threatened their way of life, their American dream and their community--to the point that, in order to protect an endangered fish species, an environmental ruling--imposed by the Endangered Species Act--shut their water supply and they had to lay-off thousands of migrant farm workers, which all together, devastated their farming community. Because of that, they felt they needed to act! On April 14, 2009, farmers and farm workers, along with a coalition of Latinos (lead by Latino comedian turned activist, Paul Rodriguez), stage a water march across the heart of the California Central Valley, to demand that these water restrictions be overturned and that their water supply be turned back on.... because to them and their migrant farming community, water is not only their means of survival, it is a chance of a better future, for them and their families. This is a fight for survival... a FIGHT FOR WATER.

 

Liquid Assests 3:55pm

 

Liquid Assets (90 minutes) Liquid Assets tells the story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. These systems - some in the ground for more than 100 years - provide a critical public health function and are essential for economic development and growth. Largely out of sight and out of mind, these aging systems have not been maintained, and some estimates suggest this is the single largest public works endeavor in our nation's history. Exploring the history, engineering challenges, and political and economic realities in urban and rural locations, the documentary provides an understanding of the hidden assets that support our way of life. Locations featured in the documentary include Atlanta, Boston, Herminie (Pennsylvania), Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C.

 

Blue Gold: World Water Wars 5:40pm

 

Blue Gold: World Water Wars (90 min) Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are over oil today, as the source of human survival enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Can the human race survive?

 

There Once Was An Island 7:30pm

 

There Once was an Island (80 min) What if your community had to decide whether to leave their homeland forever and there was no help available? This is the reality for the culturally unique Polynesian community of Takuu, a tiny low-lying atoll in the South Western Pacific. As a terrifying tidal flood rips through their already damaged home, the Takuu community experiences the devastating effects of climate change first hand. This film gives a human face to the direct impacts of climate change in the Pacific, challenging audiences everywhere to consider their own relationship to the earth and the other people on it.

The Mask You Live In*

 

Wednesday,  April 20th, 7:30pm

 

 

 

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.

 

Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men.

 

Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it.

 

The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
