MoNday Movie Nights At the Beach Plum
Join professor, author, historian, and filmmaker Henry Louis Gates, Jr., as he shares clips from his four-part PBS series exploring the transformative years after the Civil War, when the nation struggled to rebuild itself in the face of profound loss, massive destruction, and revolutionary social change. One of the most important and consequential chapters in American history is also among the most overlooked, misunderstood, and misrepresented. The twelve years of the post-war Reconstruction era signalled a seismic shift in our democracy.
It seems as though a senseless mass shooting takes place every week, but last year’s horrific events at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School still resonate. With great intimacy and raw emotion this moving film follows several survivors—David Hogg, Victoria Gonzalez, Sam Zeif, and Dillon McCooty—as they learn to manage their trauma within daily lives of basketball, preparing for prom, graduation. Swept into the national spotlight, these brave, resilient individuals speak in the face of fear and unite on a quest to change gun laws.
Celebrate the explosion of popular music that came out of L.A.'s Laurel Canyon in the mid-‘60s as folk went electric and the Byrds, the Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and the Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the “California Sound.” The songs from that era provide an entry point for Jakob Dylan and a new generation of artists—Beck, Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Regina Spektor—whose body of work reflects the echoes of that pivotal time. Paying homage, they interpret and perform these songs, in many cases in front of the original songwriters and at a 50th anniversary tribute concert. Dylan, the film’s narrator, also uncovers never-before-heard personal details behind the recordings, and how the music continues to inspire today.
Seeing the disappearance of fish he loves to catch, 15-year-old Jack Nixon enlists marine conservationist Dr. Sylvia Earle in a years-long quest to save our dying oceans. Photographer Brian Skerry, captain Max Kennedy, and a band of teenage aquanauts bolster expeditions to the high seas of industrial fishing fleets, and to the melting polar ice of the Chukchi Sea. Astronaut Bill Anders and activist Bill McKibben provide lessons on how humanity met past challenges. Daunted by the present ones, the teenagers find hope in nature’s ability to heal.
What do you do when your barking dog gets you evicted from your apartment? Molly and John Chester decide to create a farm on 200 acres of nutrient-depleted land suffering from drought. Then there are the wildfires, and plot twists that prove true life is stranger than fiction. This is the inspiring tale of incredibly resilient farmers striving to understand the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.
