Painted Nails Documentary (trailer)
Static Preview

We witness the American dream crumble when Van Nguren, a Vietnamese nail salon worker, discovers her health problems, including two miscarriages, are the result of toxic chemicals in the products used in her salon. Van courageously becomes the first worker to testify in Congress against the cosmetic industry in over 30 years.

Painted Nailsenters the rich culture of Vietnamese-American Van Hoang's bustling nail salon in the Mission District of San Francisco. The salon caters to a diverse clientele, women of African American, European, Latino, and Asian ethnicities, who come not only for the acrylic nails with original design each a miniature painting that might include gold stars, glittering palm fronds, or frolicking blue dolphins, but also for the caring environment. The salon clients beam as they hold up their vividly colored talons for the camera, in a proud display of their identity as women. Produced and directed by Dianne Griffen. Associate producer and translator is Nhung Pham.

Nibi (Water) Gathering at Turtle Lodge
Static Preview

Water is an element that can unite our Nations to serve a common purpose. 
     We are making an International Call to attend the Nibi Water Gathering at the Turtle Lodge, on the Shores of Lake Winnipeg, one of our most endangered lakes, where the four rivers meet, on June 4 and 5, 2015.
     At the Water Ceremony the Original People of Turtle Island (North America) will formally establish their leadership. The Nibi Water Gathering will coincide with the honouring of leaders in Earth stewardship, those who have been spiritually guided in their leadership, and the honouring of Youth completing their rites of passage to adulthood.
     It is our hope that People of all cultures will attend and make their gifts and offerings to the Water!

Creating A Restorative Loop with the Net-Works Programme
Static Preview
With at least 660 million people around the globe relying on the ocean for their livelihoods, and many living on the poverty line, Miriam Turner, Interface's Assistant VP, Co-Innovation, saw an opportunity. Inspired by Aquafil's recycling strides, she asked "Could we take this down to the community level and benefit some of the poorest people in the world? What if we could build a truly inclusive business model - buying discarded nets from local fishermen - giving them extra income - and cleaning up the beaches and oceans at the same time?" Published on Sep 3, 2013 Interface Europe on Facebook.

Ocean acidification explained in two minutes
Static Preview
The climate is changing, sure, but things are changing underwater, too. A quarter of the greenhouse gases we emit are absorbed by the oceans, changing their fundamental chemistry and causing all sorts of problems for the things that live down there. Which ends up causing problems for the couple billion of us who rely on the oceans for food and livelihood (and the not-to-be-discounted wow-factor — that shit is beautiful). Published on Mar 23, 2015 by Grist, a Beacon in the smog.  Grist on YouTube.
