Katie Taylor, a Hollywood casting director, leaves her career behind in order to teach filmmaking to the youth of an impoverished South African community. Originally intending solely to equip them with employment opportunities, she quickly discovers the therapeutic impact on her students as they process life events through their films. Despite the community at first being resistant towards art and film, the school expands to a second community and an additional college level program. The students find themselves bridging cultural barriers as they become united through filmmaking.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
