If the Mango Tree Could Speak

A valid video file was found, or could not be loaded!

This documentary intimately portrays ten boys and girls growing up in the midst of war in Guatemala and El Salvador. The children--ages 12 to 15--talk about war and peace, justice, ethnic identity, friendship and marriage. In a series of touching vignettes, they share their dreams and hopes as well as their pain and loss.

The video opens in the breathtaking Guatemalan highlands, home to the country's Mayan population. DIEGO watches the remains of his father being excavated from a mass grave. He talks about what it's like to live in the same tiny community with the people who killed his father. DORA, whose family is displaced, faces the challenge of maintaining her Mayan identity. SEBASTIAN's village is hidden deep in a remote area where the army and guerrillas are still fighting. He struggles to go to school in spite of the fear and danger.

In San Jos Las Flores, El Salvador, CHICO places a cross on the grave site of his relatives killed in the war, as he talks about punishment for those responsible. YESENIA and ANA collect wood, discuss their friends and birthday presents, and recount the days spent hiding in a trench during the war. We accompany GIOVANI--a war veteran at age 14--to search for his mother among a group of returned refugees. JUAN, who grew up in an orphanage, explains why there was a war and the high price his family paid. The children's stories are disturbing but their resilience toward the harsh reality around them brings hope. Their comments are honest, insightful, and occasionally humorous. More than anything, their spirits are inspiring and their characters unforgettable.

Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw
From the rough-edged courts of Astoria, Queens and recruited by Coach Pat Summitt for the University of Tennessee's Lady Vols, Chamique Holdsclaw was hailed as the "female Michael Jordan," impressing crowds with her artistry, athleticism and drive. A 3-time NCAA champ and No.1 draft pick in the WNBA, Holdsclaw seemed destined for a spectacular professional career-until her long-suppressed battle with mental illness threatened to derail her life. Mind/Game intimately chronicles Holdsclaw's athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, and her decision-despite public stigma- to become an outspoken mental health advocate. Still, she would face dramatic, unexpected challenges to her own recovery. The film, narrated by Glenn Close, tells a powerful story of courage, struggle, and redemption.

States of Grace
Winner of multiple audience awards, States of Grace intimately captures the profound transformation of a revered physician and her family in the wake of a life-changing accident. For Dr. Grace Dammann, a pioneering AIDS specialist who was honored by the Dalai Lama, a routine commute across the Golden Gate Bridge turned tragic when another driver crashed head on into her car. After seven weeks in a coma and a dozen surgeries, Grace miraculously awakened with her cognitive abilities intact, though her body was left shattered. States of Grace follows her return home to the Buddhist community where she and her partner Nancy "Fu" Schroeder live with their teenage daughter Sabrina, who was born with cerebral palsy.

Tracing Roots
Tracing Roots is a portrait of an artist and a mystery. The film follows master weaver and Haida elder Delores Churchill on a journey to understand the origins of a spruce root hat found with Kw"aday D"an Ts'`inchi, the Long Ago Person Found. The 300-year-old traveler discovered in Northern Canada a retreating glacier. Delores's quest crosses cultures and borders, involving artists, scholars and scientists, raising questions about the meaning of connection, knowledge and ownership.
