There are many new offerings this year. We are delighted to spread our wings to present a selection of films in Mount Dora and the opening night film at Enzian Theater. We are proud to present the world premier of the important new play, “Bearing Witness,” at Mad Cow Theatre. For the eleventh year, see the inspirational artwork of the K-12 students of Orange County Public Schools on display in the rotunda of Orlando’s City Hall. Join us for the screenings, the art, the play, parties and the chance to meet filmmakers and make new friends. GPFF is, as always, grateful for the support of our community partners, sponsors and volunteers. And we thank you, our loyal audience. Throughout the 14 years of mounting this event, we have made friendships from which we draw energy and support, and we have heard your stories of change and community involvement that inspire us to continue this yearly celebration of you, of this great Central Florida community and of a brighter future for us all.

The revelry and camaraderie of the early morning hours of June 12, 2016 at the Pulse nightclub were shattered by gunfire. In the three months that have followed, this community has come together to unite and heal, but also to reflect on what it means to be a community, what it means to embrace one another beyond indifferent tolerance and, with hope, what it means to take an active role in bringing about a more peaceful world. It is our desire for the festival to celebrate Orlando’s inspiring response to the tragedy – to be defined not by the heinous act, but by the loving, compassionate embrace of its diverse citizenry. This year’s program continues our mission to bring to light the issues important to people here in Central Florida and around the world, but also to offer models of peace and portraits of people standing up for our common humanity through actions big and small to make the world better than they found it.

BEYOND THE DIVIDE

\\

Set in the vast, mountainous beauty of Montana, Beyond the Divide is a documentary about war, peace, and the courage to find common ground. Almost 50 years have passed since the beginning of the Vietnam War. The politics and casualties are history yet deep scars remain between those who served and those who fought a different war at home. In Missoula, Montana, a mysterious graffiti peace symbol inflamed the enduring animosity, dividing a community for decades. Through the courageous acts of a Vietnam veteran and a peace advocate, Beyond the Divide illuminates a path to healing old wounds and demonstrates peace building at its finest. It inspires audiences to take courageous first steps to reach beyond polarizing divides in search of common ground. What will you do to go Beyond the Divide? www.beyondthidividefilm.com

EVERY THREE SECONDS Director: Daniel Karslake USA, 2014, 99 mins In a society where materialism reigns, what is the real secret to happiness? Award-winning filmmaker Daniel Karslake (For the Bible Tells Me So) tells the unforgettable stories of five regular folks - a boy, a college student, a thirty-something and two seniors – whose lives went from ordinary to extraordinary based on one simple decision – to engage. Each chose action over apathy, and in the process, each one has had a significant and lasting impact on two of the most challenging, yet solvable, issues of our time, hunger and extreme poverty. Every Three Seconds is about doing well by doing good – about changing the world and changing your own life in the process. www.everythreeseconds.net 17

Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. Under the guidance of idealistic music director Favio Chavez, the orchestra must navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. However, when a natural disaster strikes their country, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit. www.landfillharmonicmovie.com

P L A N E TA R Y Director: Guy Reid USA/Asia/Sweden/Kenya/UK, 2015, 85 mins PLANETARY is a wakeup call, a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. It is a reminder that it’s time to shift our perspective, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us - to remember that: we are PLANETARY. The film interweaves imagery from NASA Apollo missions with visions of the Milky Way, Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, and the cacophonous sounds of downtown Tokyo and Manhattan, with interviews from renowned experts including astronauts Ron Garan and Mae Jemison (first African American woman in space), environmentalist Bill McKibben, National Book Award winner Barry Lopez, anthropologist Wade Davis and many others who shed new light on the ways our world view is profoundly affecting life on our planet. www.tinyurl.com/planetarythefilm

SEPTEMBER 2016

World Premiere

Influenced by his own combat experience, Bird reflects on his father Dr. Samuel Bird, a veteran of WWII who, as a doctor, was a liberator of Mauthausen concentration camp in 1945. Both served their country, but they were not able to share their war experiences until the end of the older man’s life when finally a terrible secret was revealed. The pain of war and the horror of the holocaust are explored in this theatrical experience, culminating in the ultimate recognition and acknowledgment of healing through love and understanding between father and son. Set at Mauthausen concentration camp, Bird reenacts his own visit to the camp and reflects on – maybe even channels – his father’s spirit and the memory of all of the souls at the camp that were exterminated by the Nazis.

LOVE IS STRANGE Director: Ira Sachs Starring: John Lithgow & Alfred Molina USA, 2014, 94 mins

Tue. 9/20, 6pm, Enzian

After 39 years together, Ben and George take advantage of the new marriage laws and tie the knot in a City Hall wedding in Lower Manhattan. On the return from their honeymoon, however, on account of their vows, Ben gets fired from his longtime job as a choir director for a co-ed Catholic school. Suddenly, with no real savings to count on, the couple finds that they can’t afford the rent on their small Chelsea apartment. Only days after they have gathered to celebrate the nuptials, this tight-knit community of family and friends now has to come together again to help figure out how to help their two friends.

With the Syrian conflict now in its sixth year, millions of people continue to be displaced. After Spring is the story of what happens next. By following two refugee families in transition and aid workers fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees. With no end in sight for the conflict or this refugee crisis, everyone must decide if they can rebuild their lives in a place that was never meant to be permanent.

Uniquely revealed from their daughters’ perspectives, Mead and Crate demonstrate a fascination with how societies are forced to negotiate the disruption of their traditional ways of life, whether through encounters with the outside world or the unprecedented change wrought by melting permafrost, receding glaciers, and rising tides. www.ironboundfilms.com/films-tv

* Both screenings free and open to the public* Best of Enemies is a documentary about the legendary debates between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley, which came to define a new era of public discourse in the media, demarcating the moment that TV’s political ambition shifted from narrative to spectacle. In the summer of 1968, ABC News hired Buckley, leading light of the nascent neo-conservative movement, and Vidal, a leftist novelist and polemicist, a Democrat by heritage, a cousin to Jackie Onassis. Each thought the other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they slugged out policy, political insult and revisionist histories. These discussions beg the question, “What has television done to the way we talk about politics?” www.itvs.org/films/best-of-enemies

Costa Rica’s civil war in 1948 shook the country to its foundations, culminating in the decision to abolish the military. As Costa Ricans dismantled their military establishment, they intentionally cultivated security relationships with other nations through treaties, international laws, and international organizations. Free of the burden of military spending, they created a vital democracy, a wide middle class, and a strong welfare state with free university education and universal health care. Over the last 68 years, the Costa Rican model has survived several serious crises, but the current threats may be the most formidable of all. www.aboldpeace.com

Every day, thousands of Floridians perform a great labor of love: caring for older parents, spouses, and other loved ones so they can live independently at home. These family caregivers are often on duty 24/7 and sometimes they can’t even take a break. But, they wouldn’t have it any other way. Help us recognize these unsung heroes.

Although we’d rather not think about it, we’re all aging. And if we’re lucky enough to live a long life, most of us will need help. 90% of Americans want to age at home, but who will provide the care we’ll need? CARE explores home care giving through the eyes of both paid workers and their elderly clients. The story reveals cracks in an outdated system that simply can’t keep up with an aging population that will double over the next two decades. www.caredocumentary.com

What happens to children when their parents are deported to Mexico? The Deportation of Innocence takes us on a journey into the experiences of four U.S.-born children and their immigrant families as they come to terms with deportation and the long-lasting effects this has had on their lives. For the children, this can mean growing up with an absentee parent, moving to a foreign country to reunite with their parents, being placed in foster care and in the most dire cases, being put up for adoption. This film takes us deep into the struggle of these American children as they are caught in the political crossfire between two nations. www.tinyurl.com/deportationofinnocence

Women are the fastest growing segment of the incarcerated population, increasing at nearly double the rate of men since 1985. The If Project explores the reasons behind these numbers by intimately following Kim Bogucki, a heroic Seattle police officer, and the inmates with whom she worked to create a writing workshop at a maximum-security women’s prison. The inmates are challenged to answer a simple question: What if things had been different; if there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led them here, what would it have been? www.tinyurl.com/theifproject

What does life look like in a place where the anti-abortion movement has made access to legal abortion nearly impossible? Since the passing of Roe v. Wade over four decades ago, the self-labeled “pro-life” movement has won significant legal, cultural and political battles. Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in the American South and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. These women find it difficult to access reproductive healthcare, especially in places like Mississippi where the anti-abortion faction is strongest. Set against the backdrop of the fight over the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, this film is an intimate, first-of-itskind look inside the issues surrounding abortion through three women who stand on all sides of this debate and live at a turning point for reproductive healthcare in America. www.tinyurl.com/jacksonthefilm

Combining a wealth of recently discovered home movies, video and written documents with contemporary interviews and verite footage, Memories of a Penitent Heart cracks open a Pandora’s box of unresolved family drama. The film charts the director’s excavation of buried family conflict around her uncle Miguel’s death, and her search for Miguel’s partner Robert a generation later. A story about the mistakes of the past and the second chances of the present, Memories is a cautionary tale about the unresolved conflicts wrought by AIDS, and a nuanced exploration of how faith is used and abused in times of crisis. www.tinyurl.com/penitentheart

Rebels with a Cause tells the story of the dreamers and schemers who fought to keep wealthy developers from taking over – and destroying – breathtaking natural landscapes. It is the story of a small regional effort that grew into a legacy of National Seashores, National Park and National Recreation Areas around the nation; a struggle that crosses party lines, unites seemingly antagonistic foes, falters and is nearly extinguished many times, but is ultimately victorious. www.rebelsdocumentary.org 42
