"IT'S A GIRL THING", "I Want to Be Me", "Protect the Nation", and "Noor"
FEATURE: "IT'S A GIRL THING: MKA, Tween Queens and the Commodification of Girlhood"
Director: Shannon Silva
Since the birth of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in 1987, the girls' tween market has evolved from being almost non-existent into a $43 billion-dollar-a-year money making machine.
Framed by the structure of a faux interactive website, "It's A Girl Thing" speaks with consumer critics, tween brand marketers, girls, moms, and educators to explore the seemingly benign cultural universe of pastel-colored, hyper-commercialized girl culture (and the tween queen phenomenon) to reveal the complex and contradictory messages being hurled at today's young girls...tomorrow's women.
"I Want To Be Me" Director: Lauren Selman
'I Want To Be Me,' is about amplifying the voice of our children and reminding us that the future depends on being ourselves and following our dreams!
"Protect the Nation" Director: C. R. Reisser
When faced with the unexpected kindness of a stranger, a young boy begins to question himself. Does he have the courage to do what's right?
"Noor" Director: M. Shakarchi
Noor, a 10-year-old illiterate child wants to be like any other kid in her neighborhood--to go to school, make friends, and dream of her future. Unfortunately, Noor's adopted mother has other plans for her.
