Melissa Young & Mark Dworkin
Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin founded the Moving Images Video Project 20 years ago to produce and distribute documentaries about war and peace, human rights, global justice, and protection for the environment. Seeking to increase understanding in the United States of political and social issues in Central America, Moving Images later expanded to address the AIDS epidemic, labor rights and childcare, international relations in the post cold-war era, implications of new genetic technologies, local food and farming, re-thinking our cities, and elements of a new economy that is more sustainable and just.
