Daniel: A Cyclist with TBI Making a Difference
Anthony Cupaiuolo, First Tracks Productions | 2018 | 5 min
Every day (and, we mean every day) you can see Daniel riding his bike along Highway 50. And, while he's out there, he's picking up trash and doing his part to make the Lake Tahoe area better for everyone. That is an amazing story in and of itself. But it is even more incredible when you learn that Daniel nearly died as a child from a fall and was in a coma for 8 months, and although he still suffers from traumatic brain injury (TBI), that hasn't stopped him from making a difference.

Literacy for Environmental Justice: Cultivating Youth Leaders in Southeast San Francisco
Kristin Tieche | 2019 | 8 min
Bayview-Hunters Point in Southeast San Francisco has been on the front lines of the environmental justice movement since the 1940s. This short documentary film follows three environmental youth leaders who are changing the world, starting with their own neighborhood.

I am Public Lands
Chad Brown | 2019 | 26 min
Being a veteran who continues to battle with frequent PTSD is exhausting; so Soul River Inc. is bringing both diverse youth and veterans into the natural resource conversations centered around environmental challenges. Soul River youth of diverse backgrounds learn at an early age that they can form their own opinions about public land, while escaping the city for a long weekend in the wild Ochoco mountains.

Ghosts of the Mountains
John Antonelli, Will Parrinello, Matt Yamashita | 2019 | 7 min
Bayarjargal Agvaantseren helped create the 1.8 million-acre Tost Tosonbumba Nature Reserve in Mongolia's South Gobi Desert—a critical habitat for the vulnerable snow leopard. Then she succeeded in persuading the Mongolian government to cancel all 37 mining licenses within the reserve. An unprecedented victory for the snow leopard, as of June 2018 there are no active mines within the reserve—and all mining operations are illegal. For her activism, Bayara was recognized with the 2019 Goldman Environmental Prize for Asia.

A Concerned Citizen: Civics in Action
Bo Boudart | 2019 | 40 min
Dr. Riki Ott is a citizen activist who came to the aid of her Alaskan community following the Exxon Valdez oil spill. After the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf and in the Kalamazoo River, she took the lessons she learned as an activist and developed Ultimate Civics, a national civics curriculum that empowers students to participate in their democracy.
