Meet Julian, Jason, Kelly, and Durrell. Four typical American kids, with one exception. Their parents put them in a school where, from the first day of kindergarten, their teachers speak mostly Chinese or Spanish. Speaking In Tongues follows these four diverse kids and their families on their journey to become bilingual. Enter their world and ask, today is knowing one language enough?  http://speakingintonguesfilm.info/

Stonewall Uprising! with filmmakers Kate Davis & David Heilbroner.
Saturday, Aug 7th. 7:30 PM at the Organ Barn. Treefrog Farm, Guilford, VT.
Contact: John Scagliotti for directions to the Organ Barn in Guilford, stonewal@sover.net.

“It was the Rosa Parks moment,” says one man. June 28, 1969: NYC police raid a Greenwich Village Mafia-run gay bar, The Stonewall Inn. For the first time, patrons refuse to be led into paddy wagons, setting off a 3-day riot that launches the Gay Rights Movement. Told by Stonewall patrons, reporters and the cop who led the raid, Stonewall Uprising recalls the bad old days when psychoanalysts equated homosexuality with mental illness and advised aversion therapy, and even lobotomies; public service announcements warned youngsters against predatory homosexuals; and police entrapment was rampant. At the height of this oppression, the cops raid Stonewall, triggering nights of pandemonium with tear gas, billy clubs and a small army of tactical police. The rest is history. (Karen Cooper, Director, Film Forum) This American Experience Film will be seen on PBS next year but you can see it August 7th and meet the filmmakers at the Organ Barn in Guilford. http://firstrunfeatures.com/
