1. Alzheimers is the only disease in the top-10 causes of death without a known cure
2. Someone in the US develops Alzheimers every 65 seconds
3. Federal Research funding is inadequate for the scope of the problem

Time to announce the winner of our September film festival Cinematography Award! Drumroll please..and the winner is… Passage! Directed by Quentin Persia, Passage explores the life of Tom, a 25-year-old man. He opens the film on a train station platform. Standing next to the edge, he is considering jumping as a train pulls in. At the last moment, he is caught by an old man named Jacques, who invites him to spend the day with him. Jacques may make Tom's life worth living again--It may even give it a new meaning. 😇

Congratulations! 🎞🎉🔥

10/09/2019

The recipient of our September Storytelling Award, “Los Otros” is a film about the hundreds of thousands of undocumented Americans that are deported from the United States every year. What happens to these "non-citizens" after they return to a country they barely know? The short documentary Los Otros profiles three such undocumented individuals as they rebuild their lives in Mexico City. Separated from family and starting all over with nothing, they attempt to forge new lives in the shadow of a broken immigration system and a country not prepared for their return. 🎞🎬 #film #impactfilm #family #immigration

Last week, millions gathered in their respective cities to protest the lack of action in regards to climate change. In fact, A Show for A Change was one of the 120 companies to sign in support of ‘Climate Action Business Leaders’! Climate change requires IMMEDIATE action. In case you don’t know the long term effects of climate change, here are a few fast facts:
1. The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2)​​​​​​​in our atmosphere, as of 2018, is the highest it has been in 3 million years
NASA and NOAA data show that global averages in 2016 were 1.78 degrees F (0.99 degrees C) warmer than the mid-20th century average. Seventeen of the 18 warmest years have occurred since 2000
2. If emissions are not drastically reduced very soon (i.e. the next 10 years), the temperatures will continue to rise and damage will be irreversible.

So what can you do? Simple actions like taking shorter showers and carpooling or using public transit instead of driving are steps in the right direction! Check out climate.nasa.gov for more! 🌎

Check out what we’ve been up to in regards to the Global Climate Strike🌎:

120 CEOs sign statement in support of Climate Action
Business leaders unite in support of climate action across Canada, US and UK

September, 18 2019 (Vancouver, Canada):
Today, it is being announced that Jared Milrad, A Show For A Change is one of 120 CEOs and business leaders in Canada, the US and UK, have signed a Statement calling for Climate Action Now* in advance on the global climate strikes.

B Corps, which use business as a force for good, have coordinated this collective action among business leaders to demonstrate the business community’s support for the students’ climate strikes and their call for climate action. This follows Greta Thunberg, who has led student protests across the globe, asking for businesses to stand by students during Climate Change Week.

Denise Taschereau, the CEO and co-founder of Fairware, and one of the B Corp leaders facilitating this action, says: “This activation started with several CEOs in Vancouver wanting to unite and collectively call for immediate climate action. It’s both inspiring and reassuring to see this support transcend country borders, with progressive businesses in the UK and US also signing this statement, and sharing the urgency we feel in Canada.”

“The business leaders that have signed this statement recognize that our climate crisis requires action by policymakers if we’re to transition to a low-carbon economy. The climate crisis is a global problem, and we need to globally unite if we’re going to address it in time.”

The Statement for Climate Action Now has been signed by 80+ Canadian business leaders, nearly 25+ UK business leaders, and 15+ US business leaders. The full list of CEOs and businesses that have signed this statement for climate action now is available here.

The Climate Strikes are taking place on September 20 in the UK and the US, and on September 27 in Canada.

Footnotes:
*The Statement for Climate Action Now is below:
The “Climate Action Now” statement is in response to the alarming and ever-growing threat caused by the climate crisis. While the International Panel on Climate Change highlighted that we have less than 12 years to avoid a climate catastrophe, there is a growing body of experts suggesting that we have less than 18 months to take urgent action, with 2020 being the deadline for global carbon dioxide emissions peaking if we’re to keep the planet below 1.5C.
Business leaders are stepping up to call for immediate climate action, recognizing that the climate crisis is not just a business and economic risk, but a humanitarian risk. While as a whole B Corps and progressive businesses are striving to be better for the environment and working to minimize our collective impact, it’s not nearly enough.
Given our climate emergency, it’s not enough for individual companies to buy offsets, put solar on roofs, or even to create internal carbon taxes or transition to regenerative agriculture. Rethinking entire business models is necessary, but also insufficient.
Our climate crisis requires action by policymakers to align incentives and to create a level playing field or a just transition to a low-carbon economy. It’s time to use our voice as business leaders to make that call to action to local, provincial and federal policy makers to take action.

Give it up for the winner of the Creativity Award— The Passport! 🧳 Congrats!

Directed by Hanieh Bavali, The Iranian currency has been steadily losing its value against the dollar. For this reason, the past year was terrible for the economy. Most of the young Iranian citizens are trying to leave Iran and apply for asylum to other countries. They prefer the pain of homelessness instead of staying in Iran. This film is their voice. 🎞🎥🎬

Give it up for the winner of the August Storytelling Award-- “The Rhino Cup”! Congratulations! 🎉
“The Rhino Cup” explains the current severity of poaching in Africa and follows a unique way of tackling the problem. In Mozambique, communities and villagers are becoming united through a common issue—saving the Rhinos. “The Rhino Cup” was created to give the younger generation something to engage in, improve community spirit, create jobs, and to build new infrastructure. The ultimate goal - to stop poaching through football, before it’s too late.

Time for another award winner! Give it up for the winner of our August cinematography award, Be-Longing!

“Be-Longing” is the story of a 9-year-old boy who is living in a foster home. Removed from violent and chaotic birth parents after a series of family breakdowns, he is torn between accepting the trust, kindness, and security of his foster family and remaining 'loyal' to his birth parents who he still loves dearly. The struggle to regain the childhood of this young man who has not yet experienced the innocence of youth is, unfortunately not uncommon for many of today's youth placed in care or living in broken homes. “Be-Longing” shows this boy's journey from his very first day 'in care' and charts his progress along the way.

Congratulations! 🙌🎞

As many of you may know, shortly after our premiere at the Boston Film Festival last September, we began touring nationally with our film in hopes of harnessing the remarkable power of storytelling and using it to inspire change on both an individual, and a systematic level. These aspirations have led us from the East Coast to the West, paving the way for us to meet, interact, and bond with individuals from all walks of life - from Universities, to Correctional Centers. That's why it is an honor and a priviledge to share with all of you, that In Their Shoes Film has been awarded the, "Social Impact Award," from A Show For A Change Film Festival. We'd like to thank everyone that has stood by and supported us, as we navigated through these unfamiliar waters. We hope that as we move into the next leg of our journey, you will continue to support and believe in us - as we could not have made it to where we are today without your steadfast commitment and belief, that all lives are worthy. Let's (continue to) walk this road together! And, thank you to A Show For A Change Film Festival, for looking beyond the stigma and preconcieved notions, and recognizing that good still exists in this world. @ A Show For A Change @ Movikarma
Happy film Friday! Today, we're looking at the short film Run For His Life, directed by Sebastian Sdaigui. The film won the Storytelling award in A Show For A Change's monthly film festival. Run For His Life tells the story of Peter Monsanto, a celebrity photographer who soon finds a special bond with his incarcerated father through running the TCS New York City Marathon. "I’m so proud of Run For His Life and the intimate access that I was entrusted with and granted with the Monsanto family. I’ve had the pleasure of directing many projects, whether flashy music videos or more gritty portrayals. What makes this documentary so special for me is the honesty, vulnerability and love shown by Pete, his friends and family.” - Sebastian Sdaigui Watch the trailer for "Run For His Life" here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JR1gGY8ymw&feature=youtu.be Want to watch more inspiring films like "Run For His Life" sign up for movikarma.com!
"A team of four students from multiple global campuses of NYU was asked to come together to make a virtual reality/immersive film for our January-term class in London. We knew we wanted to create an experience with meaning and purpose - one that could open the eyes of the viewer to a way of life that was not like their own. Through our immersive film, we were able to create a greater sense of empathy for people dealing with chronic depression by allowing the viewer to become the person who suffers. We are so honored to receive this award and hope our project may help many people to better understand the world around them - with compassion towards their fellow human beings." - Director Kody Christiansen and "Dysthymia" Team Winner of the A Show For A Change Creativity award, "Dysthymia" is a Virtual Reality experience looking inside the mind of someone dealing with depression. The media is deeply moving and carefully produced, truly reflecting the feeling so many people feel trapped by. Watch here to experience "Dysthymia" for yourself: http://bit.ly/DysthymiaNYU360
