Between Worlds (#1302H) Duration: 55:51 STEREO TVG

Between Worlds follows a first-of-its-kind collaboration between two award-winning artists using two different mediums and two vastly different relationships with time, coming together for the creation of a singular vision. In the film, renowned "Earthscape Artist" Andres Amador creates expansive works of beach art that are lost to the elements shortly after completion, while preeminent long-exposure photographer Henthorne attempts to capture these impermanent installations in an entirely new way. It's a story that explores art from different perspectives and the challenges of meeting 'Between Worlds' to create something original.

Political Animals (#1303H) Duration: 54:00 STEREO TVPG-L

The first openly gay legislators in California were in fact four women: Carole Migden, Christine Kehoe, Jackie Goldberg, and Sheila Kuehl. These pioneers paved the way and made brave steps to ensure lasting civil rights for their community, yet their stories have not been told. This emotionally-charged film follows these four groundbreaking women who took it upon themselves to move from protesting in the streets during the 70's and 80's into the corridors of power in the 90's to fight for the causes most personal to them and their communities.

Welcome to the Neighborhood (#1305H) Duration: 27:31 STEREO TVPG

When artist Mildred Howard, daughter of legendary Berkeley activist Mable Howard, loses her South Berkeley home due to soaring rental prices, it costs Berkeley a piece of its history and its legacy. This story of an African American family illuminates both personal power to create possibilities in adversity, and the broader issue of gentrification and a housing crisis that threatens a community's diversity.

Community Vision (#1306H) Duration: 58:56 STEREO TVPG

Two very different forms of community leaders are studied in two short films. Futbolistas 4 Life Futbolistas 4 Life is about teens from Latinx immigrant families caught in the crosshairs of federal immigration policy. They take solace in the game of soccer, which lets them-if only for a moment-put their worries on the sidelines. Lady Bountiful Lady Bountiful is a look inside the world of 85 year old artist Joan Von Briesen. A mother, painter and 'the original of recycling,' Joanie has lived in her Victorian house in Cole Valley, San Francisco for almost fifty years. Through conversations with Joanie, her sister, and passers-through in her home, we learn about her unusual gifts and attitudes towards life as she faces cancer and death in mysterious, delightful, and civic-minded ways.
