Before The Flood

Screening at 2PM

If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change — would you want to know? Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.

The Freedom To Marry

Screening at 4:30PM

The Freedom To Marry is an intimate and epic documentary which goes behind-the-scenes to reveal the inner workings and key players of this historic civil rights struggle. The film follows Evan Wolfson, the man known as the architect of the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto, and their key colleagues as they wage their climactic battle before the United States Supreme Court, providing fresh perspective on the movement’s history along the way. This is a primer for social change and an inspirational tale of how people can actually make a difference.

A Sh’mal World

Screening at 6:15PM

A quirky social worker, Sh’mal Ellenberg, jokes about his chaotic work: helping mentally-ill drug addicts reclaim their lives in Gainesville, Florida. His clients are people like Kat, a hot-blooded women with insight into her mental illness, and Dale, a charismatic man with an unending drug addiction. Sh’mal relates to his clients and their life on the fringes of society and never loses his cool when they throw tantrums. Yet, when faced with the choice to reunite with his estranged, alcoholic, and sometimes-homeless son after a ten year disconnect, Sh’mal must come to terms with his own conflicting emotions about family, addiction and the struggle to fit into mainstream society.
