It Happened Here

A compelling film from director Lisa F. Jackson and producer Marjorie Schwartz Nielsen, this documentary explores sexual assault on campuses through the personal testimonials of five survivors who transform their experiences into a springboard for change. In raw and intimate interviews, the students describe surviving sexual assault only to be met with apathy, disbelief, blame and retaliation from the authorities when they tried to report the crime. When they tried to get justice, they were ignored, belittled and shamed, while their attackers remained on campus with impunity. But instead of hiding away in shame, they chose to speak out, and found a way to force institutional change.

Join the discussion: Why is it important to discuss sexual assault?

The Truth About Meat

Livestock have a massive impact on the environment. Nearly a third of the planet's ice-free land surface is devoted to raising the animals we either eat or milk. Thirty percent of the crops we grow are fed to animals. The latest UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) report estimates suggest that livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of man-made greenhouse gas emissions — the same amount produced by all the world's cars, planes, trains, and boats put together. It is also predicted that meat production is going to double in the next 40 years.

Revolution Green

"Revolution Green: A True Story of Biodiesel in America" is about one man's vision to manufacture biodiesel and one man's quest to use it in his big rig. The documentary is about the American dream and how renewable energy is critical to the future of the world economy. Centered on a husband and wife from Maui, Hawaii, the film documents how in 1996, with no financial backing, they pioneered a waste-to-energy process that took thousands of tons of waste vegetable oil destined for the Maui landfill and refined it into ASTM certified, B100 biodiesel.

Poverty, Inc.

The film "Poverty, Inc." presents a fascinating analysis of how the over-reliance on aid charities inhibits real local economic growth in the developing world (Haiti, Ghana, Rwanda), and how NGOs profit from the "global poverty industry," creating a new type of economic colonialism.
