On January 18, 2020, The Florida Project, is an award-winning portrayal of a single mother and

On February 15, 2020, the movie 13th is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava
DuVernay. The film explores the "intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the
United States.” It is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution which
abolished slavery and ended involuntary servitude except as a punishment for conviction of a
crime. DuVernay contends that slavery has been perpetuated since the end of the Civil
War through criminalizing behavior and enabling police to arrest poor freedmen and force
them to work for the state under convict leasing; suppression of African Americans
by disenfranchisement, lynchings and Jim Crow; politicians declaring a war on drugs that weigh
more heavily on minority communities and, by the late 20th century, mass incarceration of
people of color in the United States.

photographer Rick Guidotti, who left the fashion world when he grew frustrated with having to
work within the restrictive parameters of the industry’s standard of beauty. After a chance
encounter with a young woman who had the genetic condition, albinism, Rick refocused his
lens on those too often relegated to the shadows in order to change the way we see and
