It’s The Global Peace Film Festival Special Show! http://peacefilmfest.org/

Our guests were:

(1) Lisa Tillmann – Director

Weight Problem: Cultural Narratives of Fat and Obesity. Weight Problem examines whose interests are served by the ways media, culture, and the medical establishment represent issues pertaining to body shape, size, weight, and fat. The film challenges taken-for-granted notions about the so-called ‘obesity crisis’ and ‘epidemic.’

(2) Edgar Barens – Director

Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall. A moving cinema verité documentary that breaks through the walls of one of Americas oldest maximum security prisons to tell the story of the final months in the life of a terminally ill prisoner and the hospice volunteers, themselves prisoners, who care for him. The film draws from footage shot over a six-month period behind the walls of the Iowa State Penitentiary and provides a fascinating and often poignant account of how the hospice experience can profoundly touch even the forsaken lives of the incarcerated.

(3) Bob Giguere – Director

From The Cabin to the Forest: A Portal Into the Timeless Wisdom of Archie Car. A film about the distinctive ecological values of the Ocala National Forest told by re-capturing the passion and wisdom of naturalist and author Archie Fairly Carr, who often brought his college students from the University of Florida to the Forest on field trips.
