When the Land Turned Black - Blair Briody (4 min)
This film is a glimpse into the life of a third generation farmer, Donny Nelson, and the changes he's seen to his land during North Dakota's oil boom. With over 25 oil wells drilled on his property, Nelson has documented spills, accidents and the release of dangerous gasses on his once-peaceful farm. Donny's connection and love for his land is a powerful contrast to the oil industry around him.

Silo, A Spiritual Path - Pablo Lavin (70 min)
Silo, a Spiritual Path, tells the inspirational story of one man's response to global violence and the repressive regimes of Argentina and Chile. Silo's radical system of self-realization leading to nonviolent social change speaks powerfully to those working for social justice and human rights today.
Between the Miles - Michelle Opitz (90 min)
Florence reluctantly takes a job as a guitar teacher at a homeless drop-in shelter in L.A. where she meets three rambunctious teens who remind her of herself. As much trouble as they give her, she can't help but form a connection.
