Kicking off tonight, the Skirball Cultural Center is teaming up with the Social Impact Media Awards (SIMA) to present eye-opening films that inspire activism, compassion, and social transformation.
The opening night film "Almost Holy" brings viewers face-to-face with a Ukrainian vigilante priest who kidnaps and rehabilitates drug-addicted street kids.
The Village Voice called it, "The best superhero vigilante movie of the year."
How are “social impact” documentaries different than advocacy documentaries? What types of documentaries impact you to take action or open your eyes to a new way of seeing the world?
