Please join us for TAKING A STAND, our Spring Screening Salon Series starting on May 4th.
Here are the trailblazers, we could say superheroes, who we will be getting to know during this series as we explore the theme, TAKING A STAND. The waves of change they have created have and continue to revolutionize lives, mindsets, practices and policies, here and around the world. Here they are:
The girls and women, here and abroad who dared to address the taboo issue faced by adolescent girls and women in their own societies and on film,
The daughter of a Himalayan forest conservator who has become 'Monsanto's worst nightmare’, crusading for international food justice,
The visionary Southerner who had the foresight decades ago, to take a stand and dedicate his life to two simple words, “Save Everything".
Also, a very warm welcome to our Featured Guests, who you will meet on our journey:
Melissa Berton, Producer of Academy Award Winning Film, Period. End of Sentence. & Executive Director of The Pad Project
Ruby Schiff, Executive Producer of the Academy Award Winning Film, Period. End of Sentence. & Co-Founder of The Pad Project
Camilla Becket & Jim Becket, who both directed and produced this life story of Vandana Shiva
Laura Turner Seydel, international environmental advocate and eco-living expert, Chair of Captain Planet Foundation & Director of Turner Foundation.
... and our series participants, who will be with us for any or all sessions, including our closing salon where we put the pieces together and connect further as a group.
