Film: "WHITE LIKE ME"
(66 min, Scott Morris, 2013)

"Hard and clear lessons on persisting white racism presented accurately, graphically, and unforgettably. Constantly raises the crucial question: Can the US truly become the land of 'liberty and justice for all'?"
- Joe Feagin, Author, Racist America

WHITE LIKE ME, based on the work of acclaimed anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise, explores race and racism in the US through the lens of whiteness and white privilege.
In a stunning reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and claims that we've entered a post-racial society, Wise offers a fascinating look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class, and argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today.

Film: "PAY 2 PLAY "
(87 min, John Ennis, 2014)
And a Discussion with Representatives From WAmend on the YES on Ballot Measure I-735,
"Get Big Money Out of Elections"

PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where Politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury -- through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy’s High Stakes is the layman’s guidebook to taking back our democracy.

Ballot Measure I-735 urges the Washington State Congressional delegation to propose a federal constitutional amendment clarifying that constitutional rights belong only to individuals, not corporations; that spending money is not free speech under the First Amendment; that governments are fully empowered to regulate political contributions and expenditures to prevent undue influence; and that political contributions and expenditures must be promptly disclosed to the public.

Film: "FINDING HILLYWOOD"
(60 min, Chris Towey, Leah Warshawski, 2013)
With the Filmmaker, Leah Warshawski

This wonderfully uplifting film, HILLYWOOD, is about a blossoming film community in Rwanda. (The film industry there has been named “Hillywood” for the country’s rolling hills).
As Rwanda is still recovering from the wounds of a cultural genocide 20 years ago, cinema has become a way for artists to express themselves and create cultural discussion. This is a stirring documentary that reveals the power of media as a catalyst for cultural healing but also serves as a lesson on Rwandan history. The film’s final act takes a breathtaking final turn as Hillywood connects the people of Rwanda with the goosebumps of seeing their culture represented on the biggest screen possible.
