The Unafraid
is the winner of 2018 Kathleen Bryan Edwards Award for Human Rights at the Full Frame Film Festival.

The Unafraid is a documentary by filmmakers Anayansi Prado and Heather Courtney that follows the personal lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending their top state universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college. Shot in an observational style over a period of four years, this film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia and Aldo as they navigate activism, pursuing their right to education, and fighting for the rights of their families and communities.

¡Las Sandinistas!
 is a documentary film tells the disappearing story of the women who fought in Nicaragua’s Sandinista Revolution and their continuing struggle for justice.

¡Las Sandinistas!
by director and writer Jenny Murray uncovers the untold stories of women who shattered barriers to lead combat and social reform during Nicaragua’s 1979 Sandinista Revolution, and the ensuing US-backed Contra War, as these same women continue to lead the struggle for justice today against their current government’s suppression of women’s rights and democracy.

Friday November 9, 2018: Farmsteaders

Farmsteaders
is as much a study of place as it is a study of persistence. Filmmaker, Shaena Mallett, captures this magnificent story. Having abandoned a career as a food processing engineer at General Mills, Nick returns home, the prodigal son, and he, his wife Celeste and their young family resurrect his late grandfather’s dairy farm. Heroic, benign and accessible, Nick and Celeste’s meditations on life, legacy, and resistance offer an unexpected voice from a forsaken people – those who grow the food that sustains us.

Friday February 15, 2019: Don't Get Trouble in Your Mind

Don't Get Trouble in Your Mind
is a film by award-winning director, John Whitehead, captures the story of how three African-Americans from the hip-hop generation embraced a 19th-century genre and took it to new heights, winning a Grammy in 2010. The story of the band’s meteoric rise, from busking on the street to playing major festivals, is punctuated and informed by the history of the banjo’s origins in Africa, and the untold story of how blacks and whites collaborated to create the earliest forms of American popular music.
