Changing Landscapes: Wauters Farm
Los Angeles based art collective Arthur King travels to rural Iowa to gather audio and visual samples from a small family farm in order to reuse them creatively in a large-scale, improvisational visual art and music performance within the same setting.

Cuban Earth
Cuban performing arts often play an important role in engaging citizens with a sense of history and place, and in addressing environmental and cultural challenges. In far Western Cuba, in the city of Pinar del Rio, a government-funded, collaborative street performance group called TECMA (translated as Theatre of the Environment) trains homeless and disenfranchised local teenagers in the art of stilt performance.
Language: English, Spanish
Subtitles: English

Activized
Activized is the story of ordinary citizens who have gotten off the sidelines and become involved in gun violence prevention, voting rights, and immigrants’ rights. These passionate political newcomers never saw themselves as activists, but something in the past three years inspired each of them to step up, put themselves on the front lines, and defend American values. Interweaving their personal stories against the backdrop of the causes they fight for we experience their motivations, successes and failures, their sacrifices, and victories. Above all, we celebrate these inspiring, courageous activists for embracing one of the most basic of American traditions – dissent.
