Third "Power of a New Idea" Film Available Online
The third film produced for Oregon Humanities by Jelly Helm and Grow Film is now available for viewing online at the Oregon Humanities website and on YouTube. Like the other previous two films, this one explores “The Power of a New Idea,” but looks at how disagreement and discomfort can lead to openness and change. The film features Pancho Savery, Robyn Tenenbaum, Kate Sokoloff, David Gutterman, Jon Broderick, Sharnissa Clemons, CaroleZoom, Jesse Beason, and Andrew Proctor.
