Filmmakers Anthony Aalto and Mike Hinchey’s documentary, designed to motivate state residents to support legislative action on homelessness, is a work of advocacy journalism that carries a compelling urgency. The images of scores of adults and children on busy, urban streets—not just hanging out or sleeping, but living in makeshift encampments—are disturbing. The filmmakers get to know many of these individuals, capturing stories about drug use, mental health crises, victimization, or the folly of having moved to Oahu from the mainland U.S. only to end up without work, a place to rent, or resources. No Room in Paradise also presents numerous perspectives from government and city leaders (including Hawaii’s governor and Honolulu’s mayor), along with public health and housing professionals, on how to deal with these issues. What emerges is the fact that the lack of a master plan for coordinating services for the homeless is both costly and inefficient. It’s also clear that the people in charge of services are at the mercy of a state legislature that lacks both financial and political capital to pay for real solutions. What would help, they say, is a change in the public’s stance on homelessness, shifting from disdain and cynicism to a compassionate practicality. Although the film looks at trouble in one particular paradise, the issue is one that is being felt nationwide. Recommended. Aud: C, P. (T.

The filmmakers spent two years following two single mothers and their kids from a homeless encampment in the heart of Honolulu into subsidized apartments. Along the way they befriend and interview representatives of every homeless group - the mentally ill, drug addicts, veterans, Micronesian immigrants, native Hawaiians, down-on-their-luck transplants from the mainland... each has a story to tell.

Filmmakers Anthony Aalto and Mike Hinchey’s documentary, designed to motivate state residents to support legislative action on homelessness, is a work of advocacy journalism that carries a compelling urgency. The images of scores of adults and children on busy, urban streets—not just hanging out or sleeping, but living in makeshift encampments—are disturbing. The filmmakers get to know many of these individuals, capturing stories about drug use, mental health crises, victimization, or the folly of having moved to Oahu from the mainland U.S. only to end up without work, a place to rent, or resources. No Room in Paradise also presents numerous perspectives from government and city leaders (including Hawaii’s governor and Honolulu’s mayor), along with public health and housing professionals, on how to deal with these issues. What emerges is the fact that the lack of a master plan for coordinating services for the homeless is both costly and inefficient. It’s also clear that the people in charge of services are at the mercy of a state legislature that lacks both financial and political capital to pay for real solutions. What would help, they say, is a change in the public’s stance on homelessness, shifting from disdain and cynicism to a compassionate practicality. Although the film looks at trouble in one particular paradise, the issue is one that is being felt nationwide. Recommended. Aud: C, P. (T.

In North America, the way a Muslim woman dresses is her personal choice, but that choice, which includes whether or not to wear hijab to cover her hair, is often met with both approval and criticism. The film Between Allah \u0026amp; Me (and Everyone Else) explores the challenges of Farida, Shaila, Naima, and Sarah, four Torontonian Muslim women making decisions about their personal dress codes. When these women decide to start or stop wearing hijab, they cannot foresee the range of reactions other people will have to their choices. The film follows the women’s personal journeys and their interactions with different members of society, and in doing so reveals that the piece of fabric called hijab carries many diverse meanings and messages. As these women try to follow their faith and their hearts at the same time, the film unveils the intricate and complex effects of hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in which they live.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/173013808?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“[Kyoko] truly crafted a documentary… We saw fascinating character arcs and felt quite close to your characters…  film that should travel to festivals and beyond.” \u003ci\u003e– \u003c\/i\u003eMarc Glassman, Film critic, publisher and professor, Ryerson University, MFA in Documentary Media program\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Between Allah and Me not only deals with a timely topic, but one that has great personal relevance to me.

Farida, who is of Turkish decent, grew up in Russia at a time when the state discouraged religious expression, so she’s been trying to make up for lost time. She studies the Qur’an and prays five times a day, although her mother doesn’t see the point of the hijab. Farida also trades in her short-sleeved tops and above-the-knee skirts for more modest apparel. When she attended Islamic school as child, Shaila felt like a sinner until her mother bought her a hijab. After wearing it for 20 years, she has now entered politics, and decides that it doesn’t feel right anymore, so she only wears the hijab for special occasions. As she puts it, “I feel that Allah can read my heart, and that's what Islam is to me”. At the beginning of the film, Naima, a student, believes that wearing the Hijab is the right thing to do — although she isn’t sure the it’s mandatory, since religious scholars disagree on the point —but she comes to the same conclusion as Shaila, and stops wearing it. Since she wore the hijab for four years, those when know her express surprise, but she assures them that her beliefs haven’t changed. Her friend, Sarah, has her mother’s support for wearing the hijab, but her secular father criticizes the practice, calling it a relic from an earlier era. By allowing her subjects to speak for themselves, Yokoma offers viewers who are interested in religion and gender studies much food for thought in this documentary that is sure to provoke discussion.

In Greenland, the cameras follow Lars Jeremiassen, a 65-year-old seal hunter, as he and his neighbors struggle to maintain their traditional lifestyle even as the ice on which their livelihood depends continues to contract year after year (and the winter hunting season with it). In Tuvalu -- comprised of three small islands and six atolls in the Pacific that together encompass only 10 square miles -- the rising sea level has begun to contaminate the groundwater with salt, killing off the local vegetation. Some of the natives have already fled to New Zealand with their families, but those left behind who lack resources to emigrate are worried about their children's future. For both locales, the sense of sadness and loss is palpable and deeply poignant. A hauntingly personal portrait of two regions that are immediately threatened by global warming, Thule Tuvalu delivers a sobering warning about the fate that could soon befall many other places. Presented in its full-length version and abridged edition, this is recommended.\" - \u003cstrong\u003eVideo Librarian\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003ca href=\"\/\/www.pinterest.com\/pin\/create\/extension\/\" style=\"height: 20px;

In Greenland, the cameras follow Lars Jeremiassen, a 65-year-old seal hunter, as he and his neighbors struggle to maintain their traditional lifestyle even as the ice on which their livelihood depends continues to contract year after year (and the winter hunting season with it). In Tuvalu -- comprised of three small islands and six atolls in the Pacific that together encompass only 10 square miles -- the rising sea level has begun to contaminate the groundwater with salt, killing off the local vegetation. Some of the natives have already fled to New Zealand with their families, but those left behind who lack resources to emigrate are worried about their children's future. For both locales, the sense of sadness and loss is palpable and deeply poignant. A hauntingly personal portrait of two regions that are immediately threatened by global warming, Thule Tuvalu delivers a sobering warning about the fate that could soon befall many other places.

When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father’s Chagga culture into her own personal legacy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan

The movie is also an aesthetic delight. Its ability to weave different stories and concepts within a very personal framework suggests an artistic creativity I have rarely seen in my 19 years of teaching film. I would highly recommend screening the full 80 minute feature as its pacing, editing, dialogue, and music allow for a full understanding of the rich array of concepts presented by this wonderful director.

I particularly liked the way in which A Lot Like You personalizes the emergent tension between cultural relativist or postcolonial sensibilities on the one hand and the notion of universal human rights on the other. This is one of the defining questions of our time: how do we embrace\/embody the values of the various declarations on human rights without re-engaging in modernist or colonial projects?

When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father’s Chagga culture into her own personal legacy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan

Its ability to weave different stories and concepts within a very personal framework suggests an artistic creativity I have rarely seen in my 19 years of teaching film. I would highly recommend screening the full 80 minute feature as its pacing, editing, dialogue, and music allow for a full understanding of the rich array of concepts presented by this wonderful director. Our campus was rewarded by our viewing of this film and Eliaichi made the experience transcendent with her commentary.         \u003cbr\u003e- Jim Price, Prof. of Art, History \u0026amp; Culture Lewis \u0026amp; Clark College \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e My first reaction is that it’s very compelling material, a really emblematic postcolonial, post-globalization, and postmodern story that is timely in each of these ways. I particularly liked the way in which A Lot Like You personalizes the emergent tension between cultural relativist or postcolonial sensibilities on the one hand and the notion of universal human rights on the other. This is one of the defining questions of our time: how do we embrace\/embody the values of the various declarations on human rights without re-engaging in modernist or colonial projects?

It begins in France (at Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port) and continues through northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, a route set down by medieval Catholic custom as the way to the tomb of St. James. In the distant past, convicted criminals, as well as the general run of sinners and seekers of miracle cures, could find redemption by completing this grueling, sacred walk (with an optional bonus to continue to the sea). While the pilgrimage persists in modern times—and Catholic clergy and the Mass make appearances along the way—the tone of Walking the Camino is more non-denominational spiritual-questing than orthodox. An international set of walkers profiled include a Canadian widower, grieving for his wife; a young French Catholic mother trying to share an experience with her fun-loving brother that doesn't result in arguments; a Danish girl, who is not very pious but is still shaken by her mother's recent illness; and a Brazilian woman fleeing a bad relationship, and possibly finding new love (although we're told that romance on the Camino is a rare distraction). A fine documentary that also ties in with the Martin Sheen-Emilio Estevez Camino-set drama The Way (Sheen is acknowledged in the end titles), this is highly recommended.\" Aud: C, P. (C.

It begins in France (at Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port) and continues through northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, a route set down by medieval Catholic custom as the way to the tomb of St. James. In the distant past, convicted criminals, as well as the general run of sinners and seekers of miracle cures, could find redemption by completing this grueling, sacred walk (with an optional bonus to continue to the sea). While the pilgrimage persists in modern times—and Catholic clergy and the Mass make appearances along the way—the tone of Walking the Camino is more non-denominational spiritual-questing than orthodox. An international set of walkers profiled include a Canadian widower, grieving for his wife; a young French Catholic mother trying to share an experience with her fun-loving brother that doesn't result in arguments; a Danish girl, who is not very pious but is still shaken by her mother's recent illness; and a Brazilian woman fleeing a bad relationship, and possibly finding new love (although we're told that romance on the Camino is a rare distraction). A fine documentary that also ties in with the Martin Sheen-Emilio Estevez Camino-set drama The Way (Sheen is acknowledged in the end titles), this is highly recommended.\" Aud: C, P. (C.

In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona LaDuke and Raj Patel.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eFor more information visit: \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/www.seedthemovie.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003ewww.seedthemovie.com\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/laurels-trans-forweb-v2-black_large.png?v=1506445886\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/169932441\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch2 style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD - Sheffield Doc\/Fest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - GREEN PLANET AWARD - Rhode Island Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - BEST DOCUMENTARY - Nashville Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - BEST IN FESTIVAL - Princeton Environmental Film Fest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - ECOHERO AWARD - Portland EcoFilm Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - BEST DOCUMENTARY - Lunenberg Doc Fest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - AUDIENCE AWARD - Lunenberg Doc Fest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - HONORABLE MENTION - Cine Eco Portugal\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - AUDIENCE AWARD - American Conservation Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner - BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY - United Nations Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eFinalist - Social Impact Media Awards (SIMA) for Feature Documentary\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection - BEST OF FESTS - IDFA \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eHighly Recommended by Video Librarian\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\"Filmmakers Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz’s documentary about contemporary agriculture points out that 94 percent of seed varieties have disappeared during the last century, while financially and politically dominant biotech chemical companies such as Dow and Monsanto have taken near-complete control over the nation’s seed supply. Seed argues that industrial farming has created environmental hazards while also threatening the health of the population through genetically modified foods and the pesticides used to keep crops free from insects. The film profiles efforts made by small farms to remain independent of corporate encroachment, and it features numerous interviews with experts—including, somewhat surprisingly, primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall—who comment on this state of affairs. Featuring an imaginative visual style and carefully layered storytelling that does not dumb down the complex subject, Seed is presented here both in its full-length version and an hour-long abridged edition.

Seed argues that industrial farming has created environmental hazards while also threatening the health of the population through genetically modified foods and the pesticides used to keep crops free from insects. The film profiles efforts made by small farms to remain independent of corporate encroachment, and it features numerous interviews with experts—including, somewhat surprisingly, primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall—who comment on this state of affairs. Featuring an imaginative visual style and carefully layered storytelling that does not dumb down the complex subject, Seed is presented here both in its full-length version and an hour-long abridged edition.

Even more, the film is about family, the sacrifices people make for each other, and the deep connections that bind us all together.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59944664\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\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;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Starz Denver Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Big Sky Documentary Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWINNER of Audience Award Best Documentary Feature- San Fransisco Indiefest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- St. Louis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\/ Reviews\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Corner Store is a sincere film that students respond to.  Its intimate view of a family's struggle to immigrate to the United States provides students with an honest look in to the immigration process.  Students are engaged through this film and discussions about the film are complex and stimulate the desire to look further into the subject.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e-Scott Pettit, Social Sciences Teacher, Summit Academy High School\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A moving insight into one man’s struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e -

Even more, the film is about family, the sacrifices people make for each other, and the deep connections that bind us all together.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59944664\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\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;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Starz Denver Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Big Sky Documentary Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWINNER of Audience Award Best Documentary Feature- San Fransisco Indiefest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- St. Louis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\/ Reviews\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Corner Store is a sincere film that students respond to.  Its intimate view of a family's struggle to immigrate to the United States provides students with an honest look in to the immigration process.  Students are engaged through this film and discussions about the film are complex and stimulate the desire to look further into the subject.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e-Scott Pettit, Social Sciences Teacher, Summit Academy High School\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A moving insight into one man’s struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - New York Times\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Yet it is home, and what home actually means to us is the insistent heart of Bruens' quietly powerful film.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - The San Francisco Chronicle\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Corner Store is a remarkable achievement of documentary filmmaking; immortalizing the everyday to express a facet of human life.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - Bay Area Guardian\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Bruens’ Corner Store... refrains from making Elhaj’s struggle into melting pot boilerplate, presenting a remarkable portrait of hope kept alive under the duress of the quotidian.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - SF 360 \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Community, history, and love are the thematic strands running through the various frames of the locally made documentary “Corner Store.” \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - Beyond Chron\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Bruens, without a trace of sentimentality, shows that Youssef and his family and their friends in Bethlehem are just like us.” \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e – Culture Vulture\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca title=\"stream-link\" target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/www.docuseek2.com\/ce-cns-es\" style=\"color: #000000;\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStream\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e"}
