Each child is given a cardboard megaphone that they are encouraged to use at various times by the story's characters to cheer them on or shout a particular phrase, and even use as a weapon to thwart the film's villain. The film itself features a wide variety of entertainment, from sing-alongs to dance-alongs, puppet animation, and regular animation. Japanese screenings of the movie come with a short break in the middle, while the lighting and sound in the theater are adjusted to give the children the most comfortable experience possible.

HABEAS CORPUS: THE GUANTANAMO CASES
THE DOCUMENTARY GROUP
Series: SHORT, AGES 12-18
Description - This film teaches students about one of our most important and oldest human rights, the right of habeas corpus, which means that the government cannot lock you up without giving you the right to appear in a court of law and to challenge your detention. The film explores this right in the context of the aftermath of 9/11, when all three branches of the federal government - the Executive, the Legislative and the Judiciary - fought over the balance between national security and civil liberties. This fight escalated with four Supreme Court cases, which became known as "The Guantanamo Cases." The Court tried to balance the President's duty to protect the nation, with Constitutional protections of fundamental rights.

In each of the four cases, alleged enemy combatants, who were not American citizens, challenged their detention by the government. In each of the four decisions, the Court preserved the separation of powers, overturning laws passed by Congress and mandates proposed by the President aimed at denying prisoners the right of habeas corpus.

Both the history and the contemporary stories in the film are brought to light through compelling interviews, engaging graphic animation and poignant archival footage; all of which are able to capture and hold the attention of a high school-aged audience.

SHIMAJIRO MOVIE, THE: SHIMAJIRO AND THE MOTHER TREE
XXX
Series: FEATURE 5-12
Description - This is the third movie starring a tiger boy named Shimajiro, and it will be screened in movie theaters around Japan. Like its two predecessors, the movie has been conceived to be a child's first movie theater experience, and has been designed in a way that will hold the attention of a young audience throughout the film. Each child is given a cardboard megaphone that they are encouraged to use at various times by the story's characters to cheer them on or shout a particular phrase, and even use as a weapon to thwart the film's villain. The film itself features a wide variety of entertainment, from sing-alongs to dance-alongs, puppet animation, and regular animation. Japanese screenings of the movie come with a short break in the middle, while the lighting and sound in the theater are adjusted to give the children the most comfortable experience possible.
