2014-15 Screenings:

MAKERS
Screened in September and October 2014
MAKERS is a six-part PBS series profiling the impact women have had over the past 50 years in six industries — comedy, politics, space, war, business, and Hollywood. A landmark broadcast and digital-video initiative developed by AOL, MAKERS aims to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled.

Evolution of a Criminal
Screened in November and December 2014
How does a 16-year-old evolve into a bank robber? In Evolution of a Criminal, filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe explores what led him to pull a heist as a teenager in Texas, and returns to the scene of the crime. By interviewing family members, close friends, and mentors, we learn about his transformation from a joyous childhood to the moment he realized the severity of his family’s financial problems, and how their struggles changed his outlook on his own life.

A Path Appears
Screened in January 2015
From the team that brought you the groundbreaking Half the SkyA Path Appears goes to Colombia, Haiti, Kenya, and the USA to uncover the harshest forms of gender-based oppression and human rights violations, and solutions being implemented to combat them.

American Denial
Screened in February 2015
In 1944 Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal asked: How could America’s belief in liberty and equality also enable Jim Crow segregation? American Denial uses Myrdal’s inquiry to probe — through a diverse chorus of commentators — the power of unconscious biases today in what some have called post-racial America. 
 
The Homestretch
Screened March 2015
Three homeless teens brave Chicago winters, high school pressures, and life alone on the streets to build a brighter future.

Limited Partnership
Screened May 2015
After falling in love, a Filipino American and an Australian in 1975 became one of the world’s first same-sex couples to legally marry. The pioneering couple’s fight for justice raged on for 40 years, paving the way for the eventual defeat of the Defense of Marriage Act.
