This brings me to this week’s 5th annual Projecting Change Film Festival. Tuesday’s opening night kick off started with a special screening of World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements about kids trying to solve adult problems.

I’m particularly jazzed about Urbanized and Miss Representation. Also, do yourself a huge favour and watch John Hunter’s heralded, most influential TED Talk of 2011 on his World Peace Game (below). Daze, out.
