The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a broad, inclusive campaign, focused on mobilizing civil society around the world to support the specific objective of prohibiting and eliminating nuclear weapons. The ICAN international structure consists of partner organizations, an international steering group and an international staff team.

Densho is a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving, educating, and sharing the story of World War II-era incarceration of Japanese Americans in order to deepen understandings of American history and inspire action for equity. It documents the testimonies of Japanese Americans who were unjustly incarcerated during World War II before their memories are extinguished, offering these irreplaceable firsthand accounts, coupled with historical images and teacher resources, to explore principles of democracy, and promote equal justice for all.

With the initial goal of documenting oral histories from Japanese Americans who were incarcerated during World War II, this evolved into a mission to educate, preserve, collaborate and inspire action for equity. Densho uses digital technology to preserve and make accessible primary source materials on the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans and presents these materials and related resources for their historic value and as a means of exploring issues of democracy, intolerance, wartime hysteria, civil rights and the responsibilities of citizenship in our increasingly global society.

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a living memorial to the Holocaust, inspiring citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. It documents, studies, and interprets Holocaust history, and serves as a memorial to the millions of people murdered during the Holocaust. With unique power and authenticity, the Museum teaches millions of people each year about the dangers of unchecked hatred and the need to prevent genocide. And it encourages them to act, cultivating a sense of moral responsibility so that they will respond to the monumental challenges that confront our world.

The goal is to advance and disseminate knowledge about this unprecedented tragedy; to preserve the memory of those who suffered; and to encourage its visitors to reflect upon the moral and spiritual questions raised by the events of the Holocaust as well as their own responsibilities as citizens of a democracy.

Hibakusha Stories aims to pass the legacy of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to a new generation of high school and university students to empower them with tools to build a world free of nuclear weapons. ‘Hibakusha’ is the Japanese word for atomic bomb survivors, who, in their advancing age, have a very limited opportunity to share their first hand witness.

In ELDER VOICES, Japanese Americans, European Jews and peace activists who came of age during the Depression and WWII address the political storm clouds gathering today.

Stories For These Times

is a meditation about the destructiveness of hatred and the power of love, as told by Japanese-Americans, European Jews and conscientious objectors (COs) who came of age during the perilous times of the Great Depression and WWII. For each of these individuals the challenges they confronted proved even more daunting either because of what they believed or simply who they were. Residing together in a retirement community, they continue to live the values and principles of tolerance and mutual respect that were forged in their youth — when they were confronted with anti-Semitism, internment camps, and bigotry.

What historical lessons can young people learn from their elders? How can those lessons be applied today as we continue to strive to build a better, more just, and peaceful world? What counsel do these seniors have for young people today who shortly will be facing very difficult challenges of their own? Those watching will become immersed in a diverse and culturally enriching experience.

"We must listen to the voices of the people in this important film. If we listen, and hear, we will learn about our history and about our world today. If we listen, and learn, we will be able to create better tomorrows."
Wendy E. Chmielewski, George R. Cooley Curator, Swarthmore College Peace Collection

"This is an excellent film and so relevant for today! The theme of elder voices who survived the Nazi Holocaust and POW camps in WW2 and the Japanese Internment telling their unique, never before heard testimonies asking for our humanity today to learn to love and not hate resonated for me as a child survivor of the Holocaust. A fine film to show educationally for high school Social Studies classes. I highly recommend this."
Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff, survivor of The Nazi Holocaust, Director, Holocaust Studies Summer Institute, University of Miami, Co-author, Studying the Holocaust thru Film and Literature

"With an indelible cast of characters, ELDER VOICES showcases the experiences of a diverse group of courageous people who have survived hate and fascism in the past. The result is a necessary, humane documentary for our increasingly inhumane times."
Moustafa Bayoumi, Professor of English, CUNY - Brooklyn College, Author, How Does It Feel To Be a Problem?: Being Young and Arab in America and This Muslim American Life: Dispatches from the War on Terror

"Notably, and unlike many other films, ELDER VOICES draws parallels between the Holocaust and the U.S. forced detention of Japanese-Americans during World War II. It uses firsthand narratives of men and women who lived through the actual events to not only memorialize their experiences, but also to help us understand how those experiences affected them and shaped their lives. This film will be helpful to anyone wishing to explore the connections between nationalism, hatred, violence, and wartime fear."
Rajika Shah, Deputy Director, Center for the Study of Law and Genocide, Loyola Marymount University

"Beautifully integrates current events with those of the past. The human face of struggle, survival, resistance, compassion, and hope. This film draws us in on deeply emotional and personal levels. A wake up call for our times. Unforgettable."
Ann Doubleday, Adult Services Librarian, Burnham Memorial Library

"ELDER VOICES is an important documentary film for anyone who has lived through trauma. It's also for those who wish to understand how trauma, and more importantly, trauma recovery, effects not only the victims, but their friends and family as well."
Jamie Wraight, Director, Voice/Vision Holocaust Survivor Oral History Archive, University of Michigan - Dearborn

"Every story is a gripping description of terrifying experiences...Seeds of hate are always ready to germinate, and we must be willing to actively weed our garden. Peace is our business."
Bob Edelson, Medford Leas Life

"Sharing oral histories of trauma and their lives thereafter, elder crisis survivors show and teach us that long stories of resilience can grow from difficult and important short stories of people and groups who experience social injustice."
Michael Polgar, Associate Professor of Sociology, Social Sciences and Education, Pennsylvania State University, Author, Holocaust and Human Rights Education: Good Choices and Sociological Perspectives

"At a time when we are besieged by strident divisiveness and competing agendas, ELDER VOICES provides both welcome refuge and a wise warning...The film's warning — that a history unacknowledged and left unaddressed is bound to repeat itself — is balanced by the inspirational stories of these elders, who recount the small acts of bravery and moments of compassion and spiritual strength that helped them endure anti-Semitism, racism, unjustified incarceration, and the constant threat of death without losing hope that humankind would find a more peaceful and tolerant way of life for all."
Joanne Bernardi, Professor of Japanese Studies and Film and Media Studies, University of Rochester

"Compelling — what an amazing, inspiring and extraordinary group of people! As this remarkable film makes clear, their stories have much to teach us about our present moment, in which the frightening upsurge in nationalism, racism and xenophobia has created a veritable powder keg of hatred and intolerance."
Erin McGlothlin, Chair, Germanic Languages and Literatures, Associate Professor, German and Jewish Studies, Washington University in St. Louis, Author, Second-Generation Holocaust Literature: Legacies of Survival and Perpetration

"ELDER VOICES makes a compelling case for viewers today to speak out against present day injustices. We are introduced to a diverse community of senior citizens who, despite all their apparent differences, are united in their commitment to end war, genocide, unjust detention, and other forms of violence rooted in racism and other forms of discrimination. These wise elders ultimately articulate an interfaith vision of our shared humanity, and express the need for all of us to speak for those who are so easily cast aside because of their perceived differences."
Daniel Reynolds, Professor of Modern Languages, Chair of German Studies, Grinnell College, Author, Postcards from Auschwitz: Holocaust Tourism and the Meaning of Remembrance

WHICH WAY HOME shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States.

¿CUÁL ES EL CAMINO A MI CASA? muestra el aspecto personal de la migración a través de los ojos de los niños que enfrentan con valor y habilidad los terribles peligros para alcanzar su meta de llegar a los Estado Unidos.




As the United States continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico, WHICH WAY HOME shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States. The film follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a freight train they call "The Beast." Director Rebecca Cammisa ("Sister Helen") tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota, and Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center, and focuses on Kevin, a canny, streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, fleeing an abusive stepfather, and whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the ones you never hear about — the invisible ones.

Mientras los Estados Unidos continúa construyendo una barda entre si mismo y México, ¿CUÁL ES EL CAMINO A MI CASA? muestra el aspecto personal de la migración a través de los ojos de los niños que enfrentan con valor y habilidad los terribles peligros para alcanzar su meta de llegar a los Estado Unidos. La película sigue a varios niños migrantes no acompañados mientras viajan a través de México con destino a los EEUU en un tren de carga que llaman “La Bestia”. La Directora Rebecca Cammisa (Sister Helen) muestra los testimonios de niños como Olga y Freddy, hondureños de nueve años quienes están desesperados, tratando de encontrar a sus familias en Minnesota, y José, un salvadoreño de diez años quien ha sido abandonado por coyotes y se encuentra solo en un centro de detención mexicano, y se centra en Kevin, un joven hondureño listo y astuto de catorce años, cuya madre espera que llegue a Nueva York para poder enviar dinero a su familia. Estas son historias de esperanza y valor, decepción y pena. Ellos son los de que nunca se escucha — los invisibles.

CELLING YOUR SOUL is an examination of our love/hate relationships with our digital devices from the first digitally socialized generation, and what we can do about it.



In one short decade, we have totally changed the way we interact with one another. The millennial generation, the first to be socialized in a digital world, is now feeling the unintended consequences.

CELLING YOUR SOUL is a powerful and informative examination of how our young people actually feel about connecting in the digital world and their love/hate relationship with technology. It provides empowering strategies for more fulfilling, balanced, and authentic human interaction within the digital landscape.

The film reveals the effects of "digital socialization" by taking viewers on a personal journey with a group of high school and college students who through a digital cleanse discover the power of authentic human connectivity, and that there is "No App" or piece of technology that can ever replace the benefits of human connection.

"I often profess the roots of many of the sustainability issues faced by humanity lie in a separation from the rest of nature...If a failure to identify with the rest of the natural world contributes to a disconnect between our choices and negative environmental and social consequences, what will be the results of isolating ourselves from each other? Use this timely documentary to spur discussions (face to face!) about the important, but often overlooked, impacts our electronics have on social development."
Joy Joann Scrogum, Emerging Technologies Resource Specialist, Co-coordinator of the Sustainable Electronics Initiative, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

"Succeeds in capturing the ways in which cell phones are pervading our lives. It is very engaging and sparks great conversation among young people."
Dr. Roberta Golinkoff, Professor of Education, University of Delaware, Author, Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells us About Raising Successful Children

"[Offers] sound advice on how to monitor one's social media usage and how to judge what is the best application of technology...Appealingly genuine."
Geri Diorio, School Library Journal

"Very useful and engaging. Like fish in water, we have come to rely on anytime/anywhere access to information, content, and each other. This is especially true of young people growing up in today's digital environment. This film takes the fish out of water for a fresh perspective on its bowl - and the broader world around it."
Dr. Scott W. Campbell, Professor of Telecommunications, University of Michigan

"An honest and overdue evaluation of how our devices are shaping us...A heartwarming and eye opening understanding that people are more important than devices."
NYC Independent Film Festival

"Has the potential to intimately connect with students viewers. The students featured provide a level of peer to peer support for the viewers and open a dialogue about the harms of being so closely connected to a cell phone. Through personal stories and revelations the viewer is left with the very provocative question: 'What benefits could a technology cleanse introduce to my life?'"
Tara Stamm, Dept of Sociology, Virginia Commonwealth University

"The point of the digital cleanse is that it affords participants the opportunity to take an introspective look at how they are socially, emotionally, and biologically affected by technology and reflect on their experience...CELLING YOUR SOUL is positive and inclusive."
Jay Gillespie, Wicked Local

Best Feature Film, EarthxFilm
Best Film, Environmental Film Festival at Yale

"Shines a light on the issues of poverty, race, class, and education that underlie how natural disasters take lives."
Brian Tallerico,
"Chronicles the painful truth that waiting for the government can be hazardous to your health. The twin vulnerability of poverty and race placed African Americans at special risk in the 1995 Chicago heat wave. In America, zip code is more important than genetic code and some people and communities have the wrong complexion for protection."
Dr. Robert D. Bullard, Professor, Urban Planning and Environmental Policy, Texas Southern University, Author, Race, Place, and Environmental Justice After Hurricane Katrina


FARMSTEADERS (Coming in April 2020!)
Follows Nick and Celeste Nolan and their young family on a journey to resurrect Nick's grandfather's dairy farm as a locally sustainable family farm.
Best Feature Film, Audience Award, Indie Grits
Big Sky Documentary Film Festival
"A personal and intimate story that will create empathy between viewers and those brave souls who are farming against all odds in a globalized market system that cares little for the individual family, their historical ties to the land, and collective agrarian commitments, and instead prioritizes output above all else."
Gabrielle Roesch-McNally, Director for Women for the Land, American Farmland Trust


FROM SEED TO SEED (Coming in April 2020!)
Through a group of Canadian organic farmers—both large-scale and small-scale—we experience a full growing season with all of its rewards as well as the challenges of a changing climate.

Audience Choice Award, Soo Film Festival
Best Documentary Film, Popular Culture Association, DC
"This is one of the best documentary films about farming that I have watched."
Dr. Av Singh, Vice-President, Canadian Organic Growers
"Isn't a film focused on the evils of factory farming or the greed of big corporations; instead, it's an intimate and exalting look at the small family farm, the everyday hero of our food system."
Mother Nature Network
"A loving and enjoyable encouragement for anyone who cares about food and farming...I liked all the people featured in the film and the emphasis on community. It made me want to move to Canada."
Claire Hope Cummings, Author, Uncertain Peril: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Seeds


Looks at the role microbes play in the development, physical and mental health of our children, and argues that good health may begin with kids playing in the dirt.
"Goes a long way toward solving the mystery of the missing microbes. It shows us how microbes are an essential part of human biology, and it identifies the social and medical trends that are eliminating them from our bodies for the first time in the history of our species. Many questions remain, but it is reassuring to know that there are things we can do — as individuals, families, and societies — to harness the power of the microbiota to promote healthy development and prevent disease."
Dr. Thomas McDade, Professor of Anthropology, Director, Cells to Society (C2S): Center on Social Disparities and Health, Northwestern University


Las Vegas provides an example to the world of how any city can and must create its own sustainable water solutions.
San Francisco Green Film Festival
United Nations Association Film Festival
Bozcaada International Festival of Ecological Documentary
"One of the pivotal issues of our time...Water is the central character in Las Vegas' past, present, and future. It also plays a starring role in the city and the region's economy, culture, and politics. While this may be true in many places, what is different in this geography is the tremendous innovation and creativity taking place to do more with less, the collective sense of urgency that time is running out, and the determination of many to make a difference. We can find a better path forward with water at its heart."
Nicole Silk, President and CEO, River Network


Filmmaker Josh Fox travels to 12 countries on 6 continents to investigate climate change and uncover the answer to a difficult and fundamental question: what is it that climate change can't destroy?

The story of the massive peaceful resistance led by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to the Dakota Access Pipeline through their land and underneath the Missouri River.
Tribeca Film Festival
Traverse City Film Festival
Princeton Environmental Film Festival

"A lesson in resistance for the rest of us... Evocative... not only serves as a vital record of one of the biggest protest movements since Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter, but its events are also fresh. That swift response, a wake-up call, in the form of a visual poem, is a testament to the filmmakers' artistry, and urgency."
Jude Dry, IndieWire


Marine toxicologist Dr. Riki Ott, who helped fishing communities hit by the Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon spills, creates a civics course to help young activists become effective.
United Nations Association Film Festival

Wild & Scenic Film Festival
Big Muddy Film Festival
"Presents complex ecological problems and troubling trends. This is a clarion call for people to get savvy and reclaim democracy by speaking out. See this film; be dedicated, persevere, and be the change. We'll all be healthier if you do, including the planet."
Rob Moir, President and Executive Director, Ocean River Institute
"This film is not just about oil spills and environmental activism. It is about the critical link between the concentration of economic power, and how that has led to the concentration of political power. Every citizen, regardless of where they are in the political spectrum, needs to understand how political polarization is driven by wealth polarization. We can have a more responsive democracy by learning the lessons offered in this film."
Daniel Craig McCool, Professor Emeritus, Political Science, University of Utah, Author, River Republic: The Rise and Fall of America's Rivers


A benzene-poisoned electronics factory worker takes his fight against the global smartphone industry from his hospital bed in China to the international stage.
Toronto International Film Festival
Investigative Report, Best Film Award, FIFDH Paris
Best Documentary Feature, Workers Unite Film Festival

"His poignant, gripping, heartbreaking film shines a beacon on how callous corporate greed has been killing and incapacitating the workers on whom we all depend for the electronic devices we all use...It is sure to open the eyes of students, faculty and other citizens, and help them think differently when they pick up their phones. It may well inspire some to emulate the film's brave protagonists who fight against all odds for simple justice."
Marc Blecher, Professor of Politics and East Asian Studies, Oberlin College, Author, China Against the Tides: Restructuring through Revolution, Radicalism and Reform


Climate-changed ocean temperatures shift New England's lobster fishery across national boundaries, sparking international tension.
Best New England Film, Mystic Film Festival
Winner, International Maritime Film Festival
"Fair-minded yet charged and beautifully made...Compels us to consider the dispute as symptomatic of the much larger struggle facing all of us: adapting to climate change, whether individually or nationally, economically, or socially. This is not a problem we can fix by drawing lines on a map, because we're all in the same boat."
Lincoln Paine, Trustee, Maine Maritime Museum, Author, Down East: An Illustrated History of Maritime Maine


THE SEQUEL: What Will Follow Our Troubled Civilization?
Daringly re-imagines a thriving, resilient civilization after the collapse of our current economies, drawing on the inspirational work of David Fleming, grandfather of the global Transition Towns movement.
"Highly recommend[ed]...Through two decades of work on climate issues, I've come to appreciate that our challenges are less political and technological than we imagine them to be. Rather, our core challenges are relational and social - of how we can come to understand ourselves as connected to community across scales from local to global. An inspirational and particularly useful touchstone for those thinking about and seeking to secure a just, sustainable and resilient future for all."
Steve Adams, Director of Urban Resilience, Institute for Sustainable Communities


Reveals the increasing toxic burden on human health from chemicals in our environment.
"Leads viewers along an entertaining personal journey, beginning with the startling discovery that we each carry hundreds of synthetic chemical ingredients in our bodies that are commonly used in consumer products, without any effective regulatory oversight or understanding of the consequences. Instead of stopping there, however, she makes a few basic changes in her diet and purchasing habits that start to drastically detoxify her life. As conscious consumers, we have the potential collective power to help drive changes that ripple further out into our communities and the industries that are the ultimate source of the problem."
Charlie Cray, Senior Research Specialist, Greenpeace USA
