4th Tuesday Films presents:
 
Two Spirits
 

 
This film tells the story of the brutal murder of Fred Martinez, a male-bodied person with a feminine nature, a special gift according to his ancient Navajo culture. The film explores stories about the traditions that were once widespread among the indigenous cultures of North America when the world wasn't simply divided into male and female, and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders.

COMING UP on Media Edge:
 

Episode 498
(initially on cable access TV:
  November 22-28, 2014)

 
Segment 1: "Carbon"
(8 minutes) 
 
A new short film narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, "Carbon" shows how we can keep carbon in the ground through putting a price on carbon.


Segment 2: "World Peace is a Local Issue"
(16 minutes)
 
What happens when local citizens take on an international issue? OSCAR-nominated, EMMY-winning filmmaker, Dorothy Fadiman, documented the hard work and eventual triumph, of Palo Alto, California residents who move their City Council to change an entrenched position on a critical issue and pass a Nuclear Freeze Resolution. Narrated by Peter Coyote, this half hour documentary spans more than 30 years as we see Senator Edward Markey introduce the freeze resolution in 1982, and again today, appealing to
Congress to reduce nuclear arms. By showing what a determined group of people can accomplish, WORLD PEACE highlights the fact that international concerns are also local issues.


Segment 3: "Occupation 101"
(90 minutes)


An award-winning, thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long- perceived myths and misconceptions. It also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are
explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers.
