Philadelphia Premiere

Paper Tigers

James Redford’s moving film follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.

Portraits of Professional Caregivers: Their Passion, Their Pain

“Who helps the helper?” Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Rodney Whittenberg and partner Vic Compher’s film answers this question, portraying the faces and stories of professionals who care for people affected by adversity and trauma.
