K – 12 Collection

  • Race to Nowhere
    Race to Nowhere | Director: Vicki Abeles   Jessica Congdon  
    Year of production: 2009 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Featuring the heartbreaking stories of students across the country who have been pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve, “Race to Nowhere” points to a silent epidemic in our schools. Through the testimony of educators, parents and education experts, it reveals an education system in which cheating has become commonplace; students have become disengaged; stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant; and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

  • The Distant Barking of Dogs
    The Distant Barking of Dogs | Director: Simon Lereng Wilmont  
    Year of production: 2017 | Country of production: Denmark | Language: Russian (with full English subtitles available)

    THE DISTANT BARKING OF DOGS is set in Eastern Ukraine on the frontline of the war. Oleg lives with his beloved grandmother, Alexandra, in the small village of Hnutove. Having no other place to go, Oleg and Alexandra stay and watch as others leave the village. Life becomes increasingly difficult with each passing day, and the war offers no end in sight. In this now half-deserted village where Oleg and Alexandra are the only true constants in each other’s lives, the film shows just how fragile, but crucial, close relationships are for survival.

  • In My Room
    In My Room | Director: Ayelet Albenda  
    Year of production: 2017 | Country of production: Israel, United Kingdom, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    “In My Room” is a coming of age film. It takes place within the walls of the rooms of 6 teenagers around the world. It is based on archival materials shot by them behind closed doors and then posted on YouTube. They are not internet sensations or celebrities, just teenagers talking to themselves and to anyone who is willing to listen. The film follows a chronological timeline. It starts in 2008, the year they shot their first videos, and follows them throughout their presence on YouTube.

  • #chicagoGirl
    #chicagoGirl | Director: Joe Piscatella  
    Year of production: 2013 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    From her childhood bedroom in suburban Chicago, Ala’a, a 19-year-old American girl coordinates the revolution in Syria.
    Armed with Facebook, Twitter, Skype and cameraphones, she helps her social network “on the ground” in Syria brave snipers and shelling in the streets to show the world the human rights atrocities of a dictator. But just because the world can see the violence doesn’t mean the world can help. As the revolution rages on, everyone in the network must decide what is the most effective way to fight a dictator: social media or AK-47s.

  • American Promise
    American Promise | Director: Joe Brewster  
    Year of production: 2013 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    AMERICAN PROMISE spans 12 years in the lives of two middle class black families as they navigate their family experience when they choose to send their two young sons to a prestigious Manhattan private school. With a sharp and merciless camera, filmmakers/parents Joe and Michele intimately document the struggles as these talented boys deal with stereotypes and identity issues, while their parents juggle high expectations against the social and cultural obstacles their sons face. Convinced that education is the key to success in the 21st century, these families make enormous sacrifices for an elite education. But will the rewards be there?

    The Crash Reel | Director: Lucy Walker  
    Year of production: 2013 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    The dramatic story of one unforgettable athlete, Kevin Pearce; one eye-popping sport, snowboarding; and one explosive issue, Traumatic Brain Injury. A comeback story with a difference.
    This visually arresting film seamlessly combines twenty years of stunning action footage with new specially-shot verité footage and interviews as it follows U.S. champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce and exposes the irresistible but potentially fatal appeal of extreme sports.

  • Girl Rising
    Girl Rising | Director: Richard E. Robbins  
    Year of production: 2013 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    GIRL RISING journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors (including Meryl Streep and Salma Hayek) give them voice.

  • Music From the Inside Out
    Music From the Inside Out | Director: Daniel Anker  
    Year of production: 2006 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Filmed over a period of five years on three continents, the film is the result of the collaboration between the filmmaker and the musicians themselves. Unique in style and approach, the main character of this film is music itself. An eclectic soundtrack incorporates a blend of well-loved musical works-including classical, jazz, bluegrass, salsa and world music.
    It is about the many people within one musical ensemble, it is ultimately a personal musical journey. Each musician’s story reveals a struggle to maintain individuality, to test musical boundaries and to choose the path of an artist.

In an attempt to compete with the brands, which take up a third of his daughter’s life, Bond appoints himself Marketing Director for Nature.
    David’s humorous journey unearths some painful truths about modern family life.
