Schools that change communities( Visual )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Schools that Change Communities profiles a diverse group of public schools that are successfully creating higher achieving students in a different way -- by turning the communities where they live into their classrooms. The film re-imagines what education can be, visiting K-12 public schools in five states across America that are engaging students in learning by solving real-world problems in a variety of communities, from economically and environmentally challenged rural areas to poverty-stricken urban neighborhoods. High school students in Howard, SD, build an interdisciplinary curriculum around a plan to save the town's struggling economy. In a Boston neighborhood with a high level of crime and poverty, students learn to connect the dots between what their community seems to the outside world and what it might become. In a small Appalachian town, elementary school students help clean up an adjacent stream polluted by acid mine drainage from former coal mines. In Watsonville, CA, high school students studying Roosevelt's New Deal try to come up with a New Deal for their farming community. In Cottage Grove, OR, students help create a sustainable environment, while learning valuable science, engineering and math lessons."--Container

The babushkas of Chernobyl( Visual )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Ukrainian and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journeys into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone several decades after the world's worst nuclear disaster in April 1986. The tightly regulated 1000 square mile Dead Zone remains one of the most radioactively contaminated places on Earth, complete with military border guards. Suprisingly, a defiant, spirited group of elderly women scratches out an existence in this lethal landscape. The resilient babushkas are the last survivors of a small community who refused to leave their ancestral homes after the Chernobyl disaster. The film follows the women for over a year, capturing their unusual lives in the Dead Zone. While the babushkas' spirit mirrors the determination of the Ukrainian nation, a country that continues to survive despite its ongoing conflict with Russia, it remains unlikely Chernobyl will be repopulated anytime in the foreseeable future

Pink Boy( Visual )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A verite-style documentary profiling a gender non-conforming boy growing up in a conservative area of rural Florida ... Six-year old Jeffrey likes nothing better than to put on a gown and dance for his two lesbian moms, who adopted him expecting they would raise a boy. Butch lesbian mom BJ successfully avoided dresses and girls' toys her entire life and admits she initially had a hard time when her son expressed feminine interests ... "Pink boys" have their own challenges: they do not neatly fit into a single gender box, and instead create a space between genders, which this film explores. They like to dress in girl's clothing and play with girl toys, but still identify as boys. These children often face widespread ignorance and shaming, sometimes from their own families. They often live with daily threats of bullying and violence and are at high risk for depression and suicide as they reach their teens ... Pink Boy's verite-style allows the viewer to experience life through Jeffrey's eyes. Thanks to supportive parents, we see Jeffrey confidently move between masculine and feminine in dress-up time at school, a rodeo in Georgia, and the ultimate holiday for a pink boy, Halloween. As Jeffrey increasingly wishes to publicly be identified as a girl called Jessie, his parents must learn both to accept and to navigate when it is safe for him in an often hostile environment

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film joyfully profiles the life and work of celebrated artist Edythe Boone whose colorful murals portray some of the major events of our time and illustrate the transformative power of art ... Long before Black Lives Matter became a rallying cry, septuagenarian Boone embodied that truth as an accomplished artist and educator. From humble Harlem roots, the indefatigable Boone pursued her love of art and her dream of someday creating a new color -- "a color that no one had ever seen before.".. Boone moved her family to Berkeley in the 1970's from Harlem to avoid the growing crack epidemic. In the Bay Area, she was drawn to community mural projects that channeled her artistic talent into public advocacy for racial and social justice, including the landmark MaestraPeace mural on the San Francisco Women's Building ... Boone has made community murals her primary vehicle for helping people of all ages and ethnicities find their artistic voice and express their hopes and visions. A NEW COLOR highlights Boone's work with Oakland middle school students on a mural project and with seniors at a center in Richmond ... Woven throughout the film is the personal journey that fuels Boone's art, having lived through segregation and the Civil Rights movement, as well as the more recent tragedies of Ferguson, Trayvon Martin, and the chokehold death of her nephew Eric Garner, whose final words -- "I Can't Breathe"--Ignited national outrage over racist policing ... Filmed over five years, A NEW COLOR illuminates how the passionate, heart-felt work of one resilient woman can reverberate throughout a community and inspire both art and a more powerful chorus for justice
Room to breathe( Visual )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Room To Breathe is a surprising story of transformation as struggling kids in a San Francisco public middle school are introduced to the practice of mindfulness meditation. Topping the district in disciplinary suspensions, and with overcrowded classrooms creating a nearly impossible learning environment, overwhelmed administrators are left with stark choices: repeating the cycle of trying to force tuned-out children to listen, or to experiment with timeless inner practices that may provide them with the social, emotional, and attentional skills that they need to succeed. The first question is whether it's already too late. Confronted by defiance, contempt for authority figures, poor discipline, and more interest in "social" than learning, can a young mindfulness teacher from Berkeley succeed in opening their minds and hearts?"--Http://roomtobreathefilm.com/about-the-film/synopsis/index.html

Aghbalou( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Water is essential for food security and livelihood, especially for the millions of rural poor who rely on agriculture. AGHBALOU combines a local story of struggle with a global call to action against the growing challenge of sustaining water supplies in the face of an increasingly hostile climate ... Half of Morocco's population is employed in agriculture and therefore dependent upon groundwater for both food and employment. The Todgha Valley in Southern Morocco is one of the driest habitats on earth. Yet, residents have successfully sustained their livelihoods and agriculture for centuries through an ancient system of underground channels. But today these age-old communities face new threats and challenges from groundwater over-extraction, population growth, and climate change, among others ... The film also shows how new technologies can present unintended problems for the rural poor. When motorized water pumps were introduced to the region, they provided more water, but affected the balance of aquifers and eventually water wasn't as easy to reach as it once had been, plus the cost was too high for poorer farmers ... Featuring local farmers from the Todgha Valley and international experts, AGHBALOU presents potential strategies to adapt to growing water scarcity and insure a secure future for the rural poor

The Nuclear Requiem( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now more than 70 years after the first and only nuclear bombs were used in war, North Korea's nuclear tests and the potential for a new global arms race provide stark reminders of the enormous threat posed by the most lethal weapon ever invented ... Produced and directed by former ABC News executive producer Robert Frye, THE NUCLEAR REQUIEM presents an updated, in-depth reflection on the continuing danger nuclear weapons pose, an honest assessment of the current obstacles to disarmament, and a frank, yet hopeful, discussion of what it will take to overcome the roadblocks to a safer world ... Featured are more than three dozen top security experts and citizen activists in countries from around the world. An original piano composition by Alain Kremski provides a meditative background score to the informed commentary ... The film begins with a brief overview of the major milestones in the nuclear age to provide essential historical background ... It then highlights the status of nuclear weapons worldwide and the major areas of concern, not just North Korea, but also a new cold war with Russia, with both countries spending billions of dollars on new weapons. Inside a UN session on nuclear nonproliferation, we witness first hand the complex political and strategic concerns that make steps towards disarmament a major challenge ... The Nuclear Requiem reviews some of the recent more hopeful developments, including the Iranian nuclear agreement and greatly improved verification capabilities, as well as voices from a new generation of younger experts and activists who are working globally to change the dialogue around what is possible ... The film includes President Obama's historic 2016 visit to Hiroshima, the first by a U.S. President. In his speech he suggests we must "look directly into the eye of history and ask what we must do differently to curb such suffering again."Hiroshima should be a memory that "allows us to fight complacency"and "fuels our moral imagination."
So right so smart by Daryl Hannah( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"So Right So Smart profiles companies on the cutting edge of more sustainable business practices who are proving that being environmentally friendly is both good for the earth and good for business. Their inspiring stories of leadership and innovative change provide hopeful models for the larger business community and other institutions. The primary focus of the film is a behind-the-scenes look at the transformation of Interface Inc., a global carpet manufacturer led by Ray Anderson, one of the early pioneers of green business practices. In 1994, Anderson read Paul Hawken's The Ecology of Commerce and had an epiphany: the planet was in crisis and his business was contributing to the problem. Since then, Anderson has spearheaded an often-challenging effort to transform Interface to a "restorative enterprise," and has become an inspiration to other businesses. Working with heart and commitment, Interface surrounded itself with experts in sustainability to educate and hold the company accountable."--Publisher's website
