Before The FloodDon't Tell Anyone

Sept. 10 - Before The Flood

"From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent the disruption of life on our planet. 'This documentary shows how interconnected the fate of all humanity is — but also the power we all possess as individuals to build a better future for our planet.' says DiCaprio.”

Sept. 17 - Don't Tell Anyone
                (No Le Digas a Nadie)

"Since the age of 4, Angy Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented. Now 24 and facing an uncertain future, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog and a YouTube channel. She steps out of the shadows a second time to share her story of sexual abuse, an experience all too common among undocumented women. Don't Tell Anyone follows Rivera's remarkable journey from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times."
