THE BABUSHKAS OF CHERNOBYL
A film by Holly Morris and Anne Bogart
As Fukushima smolders, and the world grapples with a dangerous energy era, an unlikely human story emerges from Chernobyl to inform the debate. In the radioactive “Dead Zone” that surrounds the Chernobyl nuclear reactor #4, lives a community of some 200 elderly women. While their neighbors have long since fled and their husbands have died off, this stubborn sisterhood is surviving — even, oddly, thriving — on some of the most toxic acres on Earth. Why they returned - defying the authorities and seriously endangering their health - is a tale about the pull of motherland, the power of shaping one’s destiny, and the subjective nature of risk.

THE BOY GAME
A film by Deirdre Fishel
American culture, spearheaded by the media, projects an image of manhood defined by aggression and toughness. Boys then enforce this “code” and non-compliance can result in devastating harrassment. This atmosphere not only makes boys oppress girls and terrorize gay youth, it makes boys who want to fit in (but are ambivalent about aggression) live in a state of conflict. Boys desperately need a way to talk about this gender straitjacketing to develop the resilience to stand up and redefine masculinity. Using a hard hitting dramatic scenario from "off the record" interviews, "Boy Code" will engage boys in meaningful discussion about the often secretive, aggressive world they live in. The director's video on teen dating violence won a 2005 Cine Golden Eagle.
