11 Inspiring Films
Mi Mamá, a film by Jade Begay, tells the story of Nadia Mercado and her single mother, an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, and three sisters. In this film, Nadia recounts the ways that her mother helped shape the woman she is today: a cardiac nurse, an outdoor athlete, and a woman who is dedicated to helping the Latinx and People of Color outdoor communities.
Where Life Begins, a film by Katie Schuler, takes viewers to the northmost point on American soil to explore the inseparable bond between mother and child, the sacred and fragile moments after birth, and the importance of protecting the place where life begins.
Detroit Hives, a film by Palmer Morse and Rachel Weinberg, introduces Tim Paule and Nicole Lindsey – a young couple working to bring diversity to the field of beekeeping and create opportunities for young Detroit natives. Tim and Nicole are transforming their community one hive at a time by converting vacant housing lots in Detroit into urban bee farms.
Spawning Hope, a film by Roshan Patel, dives down to the coral reefs of the Caribbean to follow a team of scientists as they attempt to use cryopreserved coral sperm to introduce coral DNA to new populations of elkhorn coral. If this technique works, it could have lasting impacts on how conservationists are able to protect and restore endangered corals from near extinction.
