Segment 1: "Peak Moment"
(27 minutes)
 

 
How do you grapple with bigger, deeper issues like catastrophic climate change? Author Carolyn Baker and video producer Ivey Cone join Janaia in a
wide-ranging conversation about keeping our hearts open while witnessing the crumbling of industrial civilization. We discuss tools for holding our center, supporting each other, gratitude, and witnessing the powers of the universe at work. For Carolyn, grieving is the most important work now. She sees grieving as the other side of gratitude and love. Ivey constantly asks herself, "what is relevant?" to be doing or being. Janaia ponders what the legacy of the human experiment might be, in the vast story of Earth.

 
Segment 2: "My Country will be Underwater Soon -- Unless We Work Together"
(21 minutes)

For the people of Kiribati, climate change isn't something to be debated, denied or legislated against — it's an everyday reality. The low-lying Pacific island nation may soon be underwater, thanks to rising sea levels.
In a personal conversation with TED Talks Curator Chris Anderson, Kiribati President Anote Tong discusses his country's present climate catastrophe and its imperiled future. "In order to deal with climate change, there's got to be sacrifice. There's got to be commitment," he says. "We've got to tell people that the world has changed."

Segment 3: "Drug War Alternatives That Work"
(9 minutes)
The "War on Drugs" has been a complete disaster since 1971. Now police have alternatives to incarceration that actually help people - and save money for the taxpayers. It’s simple. Diversion programs work better than incarceration – for everyone. In cities like Seattle, San Antonio, and Salt
Lake City, we see that successful solutions are a viable option to help end serious social problems. These services alter the course of people’s lives
in a positive way and save taxpayers huge amounts of money. We cannot continue to isolate and imprison people who suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, or homelessness. We must treat them with compassion and care to better serve our communities and our pocketbooks.


 
Segment 4: "The Fragile Promise of Choice"
(57.5 minutes)

Through vignettes from cities and rural areas around the country, this documentary examines how restrictive legislation, in an atmosphere of
harassment and violence, affects the lives of abortion providers and the women who seek their services. The film features interviews with community doctors, women seeking services, clinic directors, clergy, and counselors. Their stories illustrate the increasing number of situations in which legal
does not necessarily mean accessible.
