TURNING THE TIDE - DOCUMENTARY SHORT SCREENING
Title Includes

Drowning in Sands
Two Sudanese inventors take on desertification and their rivals in a TV competition for young entrepreneurs.

Posy Wiggins, Paul Cuffee and Justice
This movie tells the story of a woman who took on the issue of civil rights late in her life and made a difference. Her work is better known in the African American community of Rhode island and it is time that we all know more about her and her impact.

The Kodiak Queen
The Kodiak Queen is about the ground-breaking transformation of a decorated WWII warship that survived Pearl Harbour, into an artificial reef and dive site by Richard Branson in the British Virgin Islands. The essence of the project was to inspire a generation of ocean lovers. But it soon revealed itself to be about something much bigger. On the 6th of September 2017, Hurricane Irma released it ferocious power across the Caribbean and Florida Keys. Irma left behind a trail of unimaginable destruction, devastating the lives of thousands of people. In this haunting film, Academy Award winner Katie Winslet and award winning filmmaker Rob Sorrenti remind us of the momentous task ahead restoring the British Virgin Islands.

Earthrise
Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. This iconic image had a powerful impact on the astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. Told 50 years later, Earthrise compels us to remember this shift and to reflect on the Earth as a shared home.
