WDI: A Piece of the Dream - Assorted shorts from the Workforce Development Institute

An uplifting collection of short films about the power of education and retraining, coupled with caring and guidance, to turn around lives that had previously been precarious. The Workforce Development Institute of New York State, a public/private partnership, helps to retrain young women, most of whom are the sole breadwinners for their families and bring them from no future minimum wage jobs, to jobs with solid, union pay and benefits and a future where they can raise their families with security and confidence.

Charlie vs Goliath - In a presidential election year that is defined by scores of angry voters railing against establishment politics, Charlie Hardy's political journey running for the US Senate in Wyoming is that of the ultimate outsider. A former educator and Catholic priest who lived in a cardboard shack in a Venezuelan barrio for a decade, Charlie cobbles together a band of misfits to run a Quixotic campaign as a Democrat against three-term Republican incumbent Mike Enzi. "Charlie vs Goliath" follows Charlie's hilarious, revealing and ultimately poignant journey across one of the most conservative states in the country. (2016, 75 min)
