  1. Saint Judy – with Q & A

    Sean Hannish / USA / 2018 / Drama, Narrative Feature Film / 106 mins
    SAINT JUDY tells the true story of Los Angeles immigration attorney Judy Wood, who single-handedly changed the United States law of asylum and saved countless lives in the process. In a landmark case, one of her first as an immigration lawyer, Judy Wood represented an Afghan woman who fled her home country after being persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls. After a tenacious battle both in and out of court, Judy's efforts culminated in arguments before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit where she fought to include women as a protected class.

  3. This Changes Everything – Opening Film with director Q&A

    Tom Donahue / USA / 2018 / Documentary Feature Film / 97 mins
    Told first-hand by some of Hollywood’s leading voices in front of and behind the camera, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING takes an incisive look into the history, empirical evidence, and systemic forces that foster gender discrimination and thus reinforce disparity in our culture. Most importantly, the film seeks pathways and solutions from within and outside the industry, and around the world.
