This scathing film is an unapologetic look at the \"new world order\" from the point of view of Jamaican workers and farmers, as well as government and policy officials. With twenty-five years of \"help\" from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank intended to bring Third World nations such as Jamaica into the fold of free market economies, these \"restructuring\" policies have crippled Jamaica's efforts toward self-reliant development while enriching the lenders. Featuring a dynamic reggae soundtrack and a searing voice over based on text by Jamaica Kincaid, as well as interviews with former Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley, former Deputy Director of the IMF Stanley Fisher, and former President of Haiti Jean-Bertrand Aristide, LIFE AND DEBT portrays the relationship between Jamaican poverty and the practices of international lending agencies while driving home the devastating consequences of globalization.\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"**** Powerful!...Offers the clearest analysis of globalization and its negative effects that I've ever seen.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e —Stephen Holden, The New York Times\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"A must-see film.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e —Michael M.

Featuring a dynamic reggae soundtrack and a searing voice over based on text by Jamaica Kincaid, as well as interviews with former Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley, former Deputy Director of the IMF Stanley Fisher, and former President of Haiti Jean-Bertrand Aristide, LIFE AND DEBT portrays the relationship between Jamaican poverty and the practices of international lending agencies while driving home the devastating consequences of globalization.\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"**** Powerful!...Offers the clearest analysis of globalization and its negative effects that I've ever seen.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e —Stephen Holden, The New York Times\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"A must-see film.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e —Michael M.

We meet Mai and her cosmopolitan family in communist Hanoi . Mai is proud that her father fought in the American War, defeating both the U.S. and “their pawns,” the South Vietnamese. More than anything, she wants to make her family proud of her. So, fueled by the opportunity for a better education and enticed by MTV-inspired visions of America, Mai travels to the United States for her senior year of high school. Nothing in her wildest imagination prepares Mai for her crash landing in rural Mississippi, where her relationships with white Pentecostal and black Baptist host-families, self-proclaimed red-necks, transvestites, and South Vietnamese immigrants challenge her long-held ideas about America, herself, freedom, and even about Vietnam.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145559307?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145559307\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMai's America (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDistinguished Documentary Achievement Feature Documentary, IDA\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAudience Award for Feature Documentary, SXSW\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eGolden Gate Certificate of Merit, San Francisco International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Northampton Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Magnolia Independent Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Indie Memphis\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest of Festival, Wine Country Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Insightful and bittersweet, the film provides an unexpected picture of America through the eyes of a charming candid heroine.”\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e — Tini Tran, Associated Press\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Astonishing.

More than anything, she wants to make her family proud of her. So, fueled by the opportunity for a better education and enticed by MTV-inspired visions of America, Mai travels to the United States for her senior year of high school. Nothing in her wildest imagination prepares Mai for her crash landing in rural Mississippi, where her relationships with white Pentecostal and black Baptist host-families, self-proclaimed red-necks, transvestites, and South Vietnamese immigrants challenge her long-held ideas about America, herself, freedom, and even about Vietnam.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145559307?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145559307\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMai's America (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDistinguished Documentary Achievement Feature Documentary, IDA\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAudience Award for Feature Documentary, SXSW\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eGolden Gate Certificate of Merit, San Francisco International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Northampton Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Magnolia Independent Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Indie Memphis\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest of Festival, Wine Country Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Insightful and bittersweet, the film provides an unexpected picture of America through the eyes of a charming candid heroine.”\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e — Tini Tran, Associated Press\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Astonishing.

They came to São Paulo, in the south of the country, to escape drought in the North or to make their fortune. Or they came simply to work because the \"wonder south\" holds the major part of the economical and industrial activities in Brazil.

In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a world increasingly embroiled in conflict and, as she saw it, heading for self-destruction. After several years, traveling over five continents, Iara encountered growing numbers of people who committed their lives to promoting change. This is their story; from Iran, where graffiti and rap became tools in fighting government repression, to Burma, where monks acting in the tradition of Gandhi take on a dictatorship, moving on to Brazil, where musicians reach out to slum kids and transform guns into guitars, and ending in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, where photography, music, and film have given a voice to those rarely heard. Featuring Medellín poets for peace, Capoeira masters from Brazil, Niger Delta militants, Iranian graffiti artists, women’s movement leaders in Rwanda, Lebanon’s refugee filmmakers, U.S. political pranksters, indigenous Kayapó activists from the Xingu River, Israeli dissidents, hip-hop artists from Palestine, and many more, \u003cb\u003eCULTURES OF RESISTANCE\u003c\/b\u003e explores how art and creativity can be ammunition in the battle for peace and justice.\u003cbr\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36854406\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"webkitallowfullscreen\" mozallowfullscreen=\"mozallowfullscreen\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eETHIOPIA \/ ADDIS ABABA, Audience Award, Addis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Best Documentary, Tiburon International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eINDIA \/ JAIPUR, Green Rose Award, Jaipur International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBENIN \/ OUIDAH, Python Audience Prize, Jury Special Mentions, Ouidah International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUKRAINE \/ KIEV, Best Documentary on Human Rights, Steps International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NY, Best Documentary, 2nd Place, Buffalo International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NV, Golden Reel Award Winner, Nevada Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ GA, Best Documentary Feature, Atlanta Underground Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ UT, Best Documentary Feature, Red Rock Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Love \u0026amp; Encouragement Award, SURGE Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"quotes\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"In Palestine, we see so many films made about us—it get's exhausting.

In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a world increasingly embroiled in conflict and, as she saw it, heading for self-destruction. After several years, traveling over five continents, Iara encountered growing numbers of people who committed their lives to promoting change. This is their story; from Iran, where graffiti and rap became tools in fighting government repression, to Burma, where monks acting in the tradition of Gandhi take on a dictatorship, moving on to Brazil, where musicians reach out to slum kids and transform guns into guitars, and ending in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, where photography, music, and film have given a voice to those rarely heard. Featuring Medellín poets for peace, Capoeira masters from Brazil, Niger Delta militants, Iranian graffiti artists, women’s movement leaders in Rwanda, Lebanon’s refugee filmmakers, U.S. political pranksters, indigenous Kayapó activists from the Xingu River, Israeli dissidents, hip-hop artists from Palestine, and many more, \u003cb\u003eCULTURES OF RESISTANCE\u003c\/b\u003e explores how art and creativity can be ammunition in the battle for peace and justice.\u003cbr\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36854406\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"webkitallowfullscreen\" mozallowfullscreen=\"mozallowfullscreen\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eETHIOPIA \/ ADDIS ABABA, Audience Award, Addis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Best Documentary, Tiburon International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eINDIA \/ JAIPUR, Green Rose Award, Jaipur International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBENIN \/ OUIDAH, Python Audience Prize, Jury Special Mentions, Ouidah International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUKRAINE \/ KIEV, Best Documentary on Human Rights, Steps International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NY, Best Documentary, 2nd Place, Buffalo International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NV, Golden Reel Award Winner, Nevada Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ GA, Best Documentary Feature, Atlanta Underground Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ UT, Best Documentary Feature, Red Rock Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Love \u0026amp; Encouragement Award, SURGE Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"quotes\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"In Palestine, we see so many films made about us—it get's exhausting.

At the heart of the film is the story of blacklisted playwright Václav Havel and his fellow dissidents who, for two decades, spoke out against totalitarianism. THE POWER OF THE POWERLESS features rare and never-before-seen interviews with key figures of the Velvet Revolution, including Václav Havel. The participation of young Czechs in the film, who reveal that much of their country's recent history has already been forgotten, makes the film all the more pertinent for young viewers. Directed by Primetime Emmy Award winner Cory Taylor. THE POWER OF THE POWERLESS has already been broadcast in 30 countries on 10 television networks, featured in 21 international film festivals, won multiple awards, and is currently being used by human rights organizations to encourage dissidents struggling in non-democratic countries including Burma, the Middle East and Cuba. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36361791\" height=\"283\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eThe Director's Statement\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCzechoslovakia's \"Velvet Revolution\" is one of the most stirring episodes of people-power in recent history. Inspired by the courageous struggle of a handful of dissidents, and sparked by idealistic students demonstrating in the streets of Prague, Czechs and Slovaks brought an end to forty years of communist tyranny through bloodless revolution in 1989. Today, Vaclav Havel, the former outlaw playwright who led the opposition, is respected as one of the most important human rights figures of the 20th Century. Though many informed people see the relevance of the Velvet Revolution to current events, great majorities of people around the world are still unaware of this inspiring story.

At the heart of the film is the story of blacklisted playwright Václav Havel and his fellow dissidents who, for two decades, spoke out against totalitarianism. THE POWER OF THE POWERLESS features rare and never-before-seen interviews with key figures of the Velvet Revolution, including Václav Havel. The participation of young Czechs in the film, who reveal that much of their country's recent history has already been forgotten, makes the film all the more pertinent for young viewers. Directed by Primetime Emmy Award winner Cory Taylor. THE POWER OF THE POWERLESS has already been broadcast in 30 countries on 10 television networks, featured in 21 international film festivals, won multiple awards, and is currently being used by human rights organizations to encourage dissidents struggling in non-democratic countries including Burma, the Middle East and Cuba. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36361791\" height=\"283\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eThe Director's Statement\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCzechoslovakia's \"Velvet Revolution\" is one of the most stirring episodes of people-power in recent history. Inspired by the courageous struggle of a handful of dissidents, and sparked by idealistic students demonstrating in the streets of Prague, Czechs and Slovaks brought an end to forty years of communist tyranny through bloodless revolution in 1989. Today, Vaclav Havel, the former outlaw playwright who led the opposition, is respected as one of the most important human rights figures of the 20th Century. Though many informed people see the relevance of the Velvet Revolution to current events, great majorities of people around the world are still unaware of this inspiring story.

The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”. Girls who survive infancy are often subject to neglect, and many grow up to face extreme violence and even death at the hands of their own husbands or other family members. The war against girls is rooted in centuries-old tradition and sustained by deeply ingrained cultural dynamics which, in combination with government policies, accelerate the elimination of girls. Focusing on India and China, IT’S A GIRL tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/51164553\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eFor a copy of the official \u003cspan class=\"GRcorrect\"\u003ediscussion\u003c\/span\u003e guide for \u003ci\u003eIt’s a Girl\u003c\/i\u003e, social action materials to share in \u003cspan class=\"GRcorrect\"\u003eyour\u003c\/span\u003e classroom, or further support from the filmmakers, please contact \u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003einfo\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e@\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eitsagirlmovie\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e.\u003c\/a\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:info@itsagirlmovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003ecom\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2012-09-12T20:22:00-07:00","created_at":"2012-09-12T17:53:20-07:00","vendor":"Andrew Brown","type":"DVD ","tags":[],"price":9995,"price_min":9995,"price_max":29500,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":239951085,"title":"University and College (With PPR)","option1":"University and College (With PPR)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"IAG-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"It's A Girl (educational) - University and College (With PPR)","public_title":"University and College (With PPR)","options":["University and College (With PPR)"],"price":29500,"weight":100,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":26,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"continue","barcode":""},{"id":239953745,"title":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","option1":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"IAG-C","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"It's A Girl (educational) - K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","public_title":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","options":["K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­‐profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)"],"price":9995,"weight":100,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":null}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_a_Girl_web_1024x1024_07b42c49-d252-47db-838c-08d00dc6dbd5.png?v=1495671399","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_A_Girl_filmstill3.jpg?v=1495671399","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_A_Girl_filmstill5.jpg?v=1495671399","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_A_Girl_filmstill6.jpg?v=1495671399"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Its_a_Girl_web_1024x1024_07b42c49-d252-47db-838c-08d00dc6dbd5.png?v=1495671399","options":["License Type"],"content":"\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDirected by: Evan Grae Davis\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eProduced by: Andrew Brown \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eReleased: 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eRunning Time: 63 min (Full length version) \u0026amp; 52 min (Classroom length version)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSubtitles: English, Spanish, French, Chinese,  \u003cimg alt=\"\" src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/220px-Closed_captioning_symbol.svg_icon.png?684\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls.

Inspired by their 2007 memoir, THE POWER OF TWO offers an intimate portrayal of the bond between half-Japanese twin sisters Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, their battle with the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) and miraculous survival through double lung transplants. Defying all odds, Ana and Isa have emerged as authors, athletes and global advocates for organ donation, and their connection to the CF and transplant communities provides rare insight into the struggles — and overlooked joys — of chronic illness. Featuring archival footage and probing expert interviews, this poignant directorial debut of Academy Award nominated producer Marc Smolowitz presents a multi-faceted portrayal of a society at a tipping point around this triumph of modern medicine. Evocative without being sentimental, THE POWER OF TWO reveals the twins not as heroines but as authentic women who share our fears about mortality and inspire us to make a difference.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145554113?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145554113\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eThe Power Of Two (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/collectiveeyeblog.tumblr.com\/post\/50028529796\/interview-with-the-power-of-twos-stenzel-twins\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cbr\u003eCLICK HERE\u003c\/a\u003e to read Collective Eye's interview with the Stenzel twins\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner Slate Award Best Documentary Feature\u003cb\u003e, California Independent Film Festival\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWorld Premiere\u003cb\u003e, DocuWeeks Theatrical Showcase\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eInternational Premiere\u003cb\u003e, Tokyo International Film Festival \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner Audience Choice Award,\u003cb\u003e San Diego Asian Film Festival   \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003e\u003cb\u003e30 FILM FESTIVALS SELECTION \u0026amp; 10 FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS! \u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"...COMPELLING...POETIC...
