The images that emerged from Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, are as indelible as any in modern history: grainy, black-and-white security-camera footage, helicopters circling overhead, children running frantically across a parking lot.

After 20 years, the story of the Columbine massacre is as timely as ever—and for some of the former students who lived it, the pain as fresh. Director Laura Farber, who was a freshman at the time of the shooting, gathers four of her classmates and returns to the school, walking through empty hallways, classrooms, and gyms as they recall their memories of that tragic day and discuss the lasting effect of the trauma in their lives. Farber’s first feature documentary sensitively examines their search for closure as well as the related issues today’s teens face.

Director Laura Farber and subjects will be in attendance for all screenings.

The Rescue List

This engrossing exposé of child slavery hinges on a team of social workers in Ghana, whose efforts to rescue and rehabilitate young boys caught (sometimes literally) in the net of the Lake Volta fishing industry unfold as a disquisition on bravery, resilience, and the meaning of family.

The Weight of Water

Erik Weihenmayer is blind. That hasn’t stopped him from climbing Mount Everest. And it’s not going to stop him from kayaking through the whitewater rapids of the Colorado River either. This sensitive documentary explores what it truly means to look fear square in the eye.
