Finding Joe is a movie about the inevitable and often unexpected crossroads at which we often find ourselves in life -- the metaphorical fork in the road that forces a choice. It challenges us to leave what is familiar and journey into the unknown, to quest for something more. On this journey we generally have to face and overcome obstacles that forge personal transformation which ultimately brings us home to ourselves, but in a more highly realized fashion.
It's a movie that both details the life's work of Joseph Campbell, and inspires the audience to take a leap of faith-to endeavor to live an epic life. Finding Joe also reveals how transcendent myths brim with various metaphors related to challenge and breakthrough, like the of slaying dragons, killing wicked witches, finding treasures and meeting wise teachers. Each hero's journey illustrates a quest that leads to the holy grail of self-discovery.
The movie also makes plain that one can never "win the ring" without one's own effort -- no hero receives "the boon," or gift of transcendence without having won it for oneself by overcoming inertial forces, especially fear.
Campbell was a highly esteemed mythologist. He studied the whole corpus of world mythology-all cultures, ancient to modern. His research and creative insight led him to discover a pattern out of which all myths related to human evolution are constructed. That pattern he called "the hero's journey."
Join us as Finding Joe takes us on the ultimate hero's journey: the journey of self discovery. It's truly an inspirational and life enriching film. Running time 80 minutes.

Join us and witness a real tragedy...'a mesmerizing one-man dive into narcissism, entitlement and unchecked greed.'
'It's easy to say you would never cross the line. But the line is presented to very few people. '
-Marc Dreier
Just days before Bernard Madoff captured headlines as the largest Ponzi schemer in U.S. history, Marc Dreier, a prominent Manhattan attorney, was arrested for orchestrating a massive fraud scheme that netted hundreds of millions of dollars from hedge funds.
Unraveled is a documentary film set during his house arrest. The film recounts Drier's struggle to prepare for the possibility of life imprisonment with first-person flashbacks of his actions. The film also shows Drier's attempts to grasp his tragic unraveling and the unraveling of his family.
The film's producer and director Marc H. Simon will be available to answer questions following the screening. Running time is 80 minutes.

Room To Breathe is a surprising story of transformation as struggling kids in a San Francisco public middle school are introduced to the practice of mindfulness meditation.
Topping the district in disciplinary suspensions, and with overcrowded classrooms creating a nearly impossible learning environment, overwhelmed administrators are left with stark choices: repeating the cycle of trying to force tuned-out children to listen, or to experiment with timeless inner practices that may provide them with the social, emotional, and attentional skills that they need to succeed.
The first question is whether it's already too late. Confronted by defiance, contempt for authority figures, poor discipline, and more interest in "social" than learning, can a young mindfulness teacher from Berkeley succeed in opening their minds and hearts?

What is our current relationship to money? Can we use the opportunity of the current economic crisis to heal our relationship with money and re-discover true wealth?
In a culture increasingly governed by money and over-saturated with stuff, our lives have become more and more devoted to the cycle of production and consumption that is required to keep the economy growing. How long can it last? And what is the cost to our social well being, to our psychological and spiritual health?
Money & Life is a story of transformation based on a new route to wealth. It invites us to meet the challenge of our time: to participate in the great transition to a sustainable, equitable and restorative economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st century. A reset... a new normal!
Money & Life was directed, produced and edited by Katie Teague an independent documentary filmmaker working in the growing field of transformational media. She founded StormCloud Media for the sole purpose of bringing inspirational educational media to the social change process.

Join us for this exclusive screening of I AM: a movie about restoring faith in human nature waking up to the miracle of who you are! A dialogue will follow the screening.
'I wish everyone could see this film. I wish everyone would HEAR this film.'
-Jo O'Connell
I AM is an uplifting and magical film that asks: what's wrong with our world and what can we do about it? The answers are profound and challenge our ideas about human nature.
The filmmaker of I AM is Tom Shadyac (the director of blockbuster films like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Nutty Professor) who seemed to have it all-big houses, fancy cars and private planes. But when a cycling accident left him incapacitated, he set out on a journey to answer those questions.
On his journey, he discovered what's right with the world... our inherent nature for cooperation not competition and the simple yet significant universal truth: We are all connected to each other and to everything around us.
