Sale! SONITA and Films on the Refugee/Immigrant Experience

The recent presidential executive order increasing restrictions that ban immigrants and refugees, was purportedly designed as a counter-terrorism effort. Instead, shock, confusion, and fear were felt around the globe, protests mounted at national airports, and a Texas mosque was burned. According to the State Department, nearly 800,000 refugees have come to America since September 11 , 2001, and fewer than 20 have been ar rested on charges of terrorism. The vast majority come seeking sanctua ry, hope, and opportunities for a better life. One beautiful illustration is SONITA, the Sundance award-winning film about a young Muslim refugee who fled the Taliban and cultur al traditions, by using music and education as ave nues for empowerment. Her inspiring story was capt ured by an Iranian filmmaker who not only recognized Sonita's potential, but played a key role in helping her to find sanctuary in the US. SONITA is the story of a refug ee, an immigrant who finds hope - a truly American story - one that captures the best of what is already great about our country. 

Buy SONITA at full price and receive any 3 films from our special curated collection for $99. See titles and ordering details. Expires 3/31/17.

 

Buy Ovarian Psycos and Receive Select Films on Feminism for $99

The Women's Marches were a tremendous success as millions from diverse ethnic, racial, religious, and economic backgrounds joined together under one banner to address injustice and the importance of feminism. The award-winning film, OVARIAN PSYCOS will inspire, challenge, educate and help us to continue the important dialogues we all need to have about injustice, racism and community. stice, racism and community. 

Bicycles? Check. Bandanas? Check. The Ovarian Psycos gear up and ride out into the night, fanning out in pairs of two, four, and six. In constant motion, cruising up and down the storied streets of Boyle Heights, East Los Angeles, and Lincoln Heights, they call out to new riders to join them in a journey through the neighborhood. "Whose streets? Our streets!" Since forming in the summer of 2011 by activist, poet M.C., and single mother, Xela de la X, the Ova's have made it their mission to cycle for the purpose of healing, reclaiming their neighborhoods, and creating safer streets for women on the Eastside. At first only attracting a few local women, over the past few years the Ovarian Psycos have inspired a ferocious and unapologetic crowd of local heroines who are a visible force along the barrios and boulevards of Los Angeles. The film OVARIAN PSYCOS (Joanna Sokolowski, Kate Trumbull-LaValle) rides along with them, exploring the impact of the group's brand of feminism on neighborhood women and communities as they confront injustice, racism, and violence.
