1:00 pm | Pink Ribbons, Inc.

2011, 98 minutes, directed by Léa Pool.

Breast Cancer has become the poster child of corporate cause-related marketing campaigns. Countless women and men walk, bike, climb and shop for the cure. Each year, millions of dollars are raised, but where does this money go and what does it actually achieve? This feature documentary shows how the devastating reality of breast cancer becomes obfuscated by a shiny, pink story of success.

3:15 pm | Salaam Dunk

2011, 82 minutes, directed by David Fine.

With plenty of pop music and girl power, Salaam Dunk delivers a tale of hope and inspiration, courtesy of one group of Iraqi women basketball players at the American University in Sulaimani, Iraq. Through interviews and personal video dairies, we learn about the women's experiences since the U.S. invasion in 2003. Education is the difference between the past and the future for these women and basketball becomes a key part of that education.
