Film Description and Trailer

When Harvard Ph.D. student Jennifer Brea is struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden, she sets out on a virtual journey to document her story as she fights a disease that medicine forgot. Doctors tell her it’s “all in her head” and determined to live, she starts filming herself and her community, a hidden world of millions confined to their homes by ME, commonly called chronic fatigue syndrome.


TAKE ACTION

Time for Unrest is a global impact campaign that seeks to strengthen the growing movement advocating for more recognition, research and funding around ME. This campaign will help bring Unrest to medical schools, leading research institutions, and communities around the world.

WE ARE PROUD TO SCREEN THIS EDU-DOCUMENTARY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ALEXANDER VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL HAPPENING OCT. 22 - 25


Film Description:
For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in todayʼs innovative world. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been named “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced” by Education Week, and called a “smart and engaging look at education in the 21st century” by The Hollywood Reporter. Film Threat stated that “this film should be a required course for all parents and educators.” Most Likely To Succeed is an official selection of many of the nation’s top film festivals, including the prestigious 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.

The Bottom Line - A gloriously inspirational film documenting music’s healing power in Alzheimer patients.
— The Hollywood Reporter

Alive Inside is a joyous cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles the astonishing experiences of individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and how its healing power can triumph where prescription medication falls short. 

This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist and best-selling author Oliver Sacks (Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain) and musician Bobby McFerrin (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”).

An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind, Alive Inside’s inspirational and emotional story left audiences humming, clapping and cheering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award.

Sometimes, you have to see it to believe it.

Journey into the heart of music and the soul of The Gambia…

For generations, West African music and oral history have been traditionally passed down through the family line of Griots (musicians, oral historians, praise singers, storytellers). It has been said when a Griot dies it’s as though a library has burned to the ground.

At the University of The Gambia, efforts are underway to attain the Griots’ oral history and cultural knowledge from the respected elders of their society. A shared desire among the community of Brikama, the University History Club unites musicians and historians while blending the past with the present and upholding the idea that, with the onset of globalization, preserving one’s own culture leads to the preservation of the entire world.

Film Description
Rick Hall grew up in rural Alabama, but despite these simple roots, Hall always wanted to be somebody. Muscle Shoals tells the story of how he did become somebody when he founded FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL, and in doing so created a deep Southern sound that permeated the music industry, and still exists today. While many accredit this to the “magic” of the Tennessee River, it was the rhythm section Hall put together, called “The Swampers,” that created this unique sound in this unexpected place. Greg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Mick Jagger, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals' magnetism, mystery and why it remains influential today.
