NO HUMAN INVOLVED
A film by PJ Starr
In 2009 after she was sentenced to more than two years in prison for prostitution, Marcia Powell was locked in a metal cage in the desert sun at an Arizona prison. Four hours later she collapsed in the 107-degree heat, and by day’s end she was dead after being removed from life support by the Department of Corrections. Even though an internal investigation revealed that guards had denied her water and ridiculed her when she pleaded for help, no one was ever charged. The documentary NO HUMAN INVOLVED investigates the circumstances of Marcia’s death, exposing the system that has lead to the death of scores of others in facilities across Arizona, and documents a movement that has formed seeking justice in her name. Marcia’s story motivates audiences to question the system that justified her incarceration, as viewers empathize with her humanity realizing that what happened to her, can happen to anyone.

A film by Lisa Collins and Mark Schwartzburt

A candid, edgy and humorous look at the current state of race and “achieving the American Dream” is told through the eyes, minds and hearts of the Festival scholars, attendees and the very colorful locals of Gregory.

RENEGADE DREAMERS
A film by Karen Kramer

This 90 minute documentary celebrates the rich culture that grew out of a few blocks of Greenwich Village in a few short years…..first by the Beat poets, and later through the folksingers…..and interweaves it with a new generation of radical bohemians…..the young poets and folksingers of today who use their words as weapons to promote social change.

SOUL OF SIMPLICITY
A film by Kendall Nelson
Best-selling author and family counselor Kim John Payne takes us on a revealing journey into the forces that are diminishing the experience of childhood and shows us what can be done to recapture and better nurture this critical stage of human development. There is, as Payne describes it, “An undeclared war on childhood,” that has quietly seeped-into everyday life, creating what some are now calling, “childhood deficit disorder.” The very good news is, as Payne demonstrates so profoundly, the speed of life and challenges of childhood can be easily adjusted and improved simply by simplifying. But, as Neil Postman, one of the truly insightful secular social commentators of the 20th century, said of parenting, it requires “Cultural Resistance…an act of rebellion against American Culture.” This film will explore that quiet rebellion in its many forms.
