A one-page overview of Change Theory, with references to other sources.

Capturing Kids' Hearts

Poetry of Resilience
Poetry of Resilience is a documentary about six international poets who individually survived Hiroshima, the Holocaust, China's Cultural Revolution, the Kurdish Genocide in Iraq, the Rwandan Genocide, and the Iranian Revolution. These six artists, including Li-Young Lee, present us with a close-up perspective of the "wide shot" of political violence. Each story is powerful, though the film's strength comes from its collective voice: different political conflicts, cultures, genders, ages, races -- one shared human narrative. This is a link to the trailer.
