Dear Friends,

We hope to see some of you for this weekend's Boston premiere of 
our new short film The Battle for Ranked Choice Voting at the Independent Film Festival Boston (Thurs. 4/25 at 9:30pm, Sat. 4/27 at 1pm, and Sun. 4/29 at 5:45pm). The film, directed by Julie Mallozzi and produced by Scotty Vercoe, tells the story of citizens across America coming together to change the way we vote. See other festival listings here.

"This is a beautiful and compelling story about what the People can do ... If only 'As Maine goes, so goes the nation'!”
— Lawrence Lessig
We're enjoying the short film format, having also completed the 12-minute Dance Family following up with the subjects of our 2004 documentary Monkey Dance. The teens in the original film – now in their early 30s – overcame poverty, gang violence, and their parents' Khmer Rouge trauma to become leaders in their community. Dance Family premiered at the Emerson Paramount Center.
CIRCLE UP broadcast on World Channel's award-winning America ReFramed series starts May 14 
Our feature documentary Circle Up will have its broadcast premiere on America ReFramed on May 14 at 8pm (7pm CT / 9pm PT) and will be re-broadcast several times. World Channel is at 2.2 in Boston; check local listings for details. 

Circle Up tells the story of a grieving mother, the men who murdered her son, and the unexpected bonds they create to prevent more violence. The film is available for institutional purchase and streaming through New Day Films or by request to Host a Screening through our website. The film has been helping audiences in schools, prisons, churches, courthouses, and even legislatures experience what restorative justice looks like. Check out our new Facilitator Guide!

We continue to create media for community organizations, including a website for the Sontag Prize in Urban Education and an upcoming video about access to oral health care for the Jon C. Burr Foundation.
This year I have also returned to a personal project I began ten years ago to document one minute of my family's breakfast every day. From the first year's videos I created an installation that explores the mutability and ephemerality of memory. Five years later I again filmed our breakfast every day, and now another five years have passed so I'm doing it once more. I plan to create a new version of the installation after this year... and I hope to continue this practice every five years for the rest of my life.
