Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Based on the international bestseller by rock-star economist Thomas Piketty (which sold over three million copies worldwide and landed Piketty on Time's list of most influential people), this captivating documentary is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, a film that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, and shines a new light on today's growing inequalities. Traveling through time, the film assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world's most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future (Available until March 1, 2023).

Stolen Education - The Legacy of Hispanic Racism in Schools

As a 9 year-old second grader, Lupe had been forced to remain in the first grade for three years, not because of her academic performance but solely because she was Mexican American. She was one of eight young students who testified in a federal court case in 1956 to end the discriminatory practice (Hernandez et al. v. Driscoll Consolidated Independent School District), one of the first post-Brown desegregation court cases to be litigated.

STOLEN EDUCATION portrays the courage of these young people, testifying in an era when fear and intimidation were used to maintain racial hierarchy and control. The students won the case, but for almost sixty years the case was never spoken about in the farming community where they lived despite its significance (Available until March 1, 2023).

Cane Toads: An Unnatural History

Cane Toads exposes one of the most bizarre biological blunders of all time. In 1935, in a strategic operation designed to save the nation's sugar cane crop from destruction by the greyback beetle, the Queensland Government imported a sackload of Bufo Marinus, the cane toad, from Hawaii. What the team of scientists failed to realize was that the beetle could fly while the cane toad couldn't! The mission was a failure. The cane toad adapted beautifully to its new environment, spread everywhere, ate everything, and soon became a pest of plague proportions (Available October 1, 2022). 

My Depression: The Up and Down and Up of it

Both heartfelt and entertaining, MY DEPRESSION uniquely illuminates the symptoms, emotions, and side effects of depression using animation, comedy, and music.

MY DEPRESSION takes viewers through an individual's journey from the early symptoms through the darkest moments, and the search to try to find help and light at the end of the tunnel (Available until July 1, 2022).
