But a series of recession-driven public school cuts now threaten to undermine those hard-won successes.

Seiltanzer (Music Video)
directed by Giacomo Francia
The dancer on a rope is a name that means and communicates the very uniqueness of a moment, the isolation in space and time, a thing that can happen and has to happen only in that particular occasion. In a dance on a rope there are so many variables, so many things that can change the outcome of the performance that the performance just stands for itself. Balance is vital, but so is risk; that is why the tightrope walker is a figure that contains matter and void.

Stay: Migration and Poverty in Rural Mexico
directed by Laura Elizabeth Pohl
The unauthorized immigrant population in the United States has tripled from 3.5 million people in 1990 to more than 11 million in 2010. Stepped-up patrols along the border with Mexico - the source of 60 percent of unauthorized immigrants - has had little impact. Why? This short film documents the lives of two men and their families. They migrated separately to the United States and Canada for work but are now able to stay in Mexico with the help of programs that invest in rural areas and reduce the pressure to migrate.
