• Do the Right Thing (Spike Lee) - an incredible portrait of culture, race, and gender issues in the inner city.
  • Peace One Day
  • God Grew Tired of Us - a wonderful documentary about Sudanese (Lost Boys) refugees in the U.S., and how they eventually become activists
  • Waste Land one word: BEAUTIFUL
  • Crude - a documentary film about the epic battle of indigenous communities and their international allies to hold Chevron accountable for massive contamination in the Ecuadorian Amazon. (Jenn's in the film a few times doing Spanish/English interpretation)
  • Blue Vinyl - a fantastic little documentary about a young woman's quest to get to the bottom of what the heck toxins makes vinyl siding, anyway. Delightful and informative! Makes me want to get a camera like she did and go out and make a movie!
  • The Take - this film, by author Naomi Klein and her partner Avi Lewis, is a fascinating look at what happened after the economic crash in Argentina when factory workers decided to put themselves back to work by taking over shut-down, boarded up factories (previously "owned" by foreign investors who pulled out during the crash...). A brilliant portrait of Klein's belief that solutions to globalization's problems will be local in source.
  • Tapped-- an inside look at water bottling companies and the water crisis going on in the U.S.
