BLUEST EYES, THE
SIMONA CAPPIELLO
Series: DOCUMENTARY, AGES 12-18
Description - The narrative of a heroic page in the history of Italy: the forgotten journey of 70.000 children from the South to the North of Italy during the second post-war period. Between 1946 and 1952 more than 70.000 southern children were saved from hunger and disease thanks to the effort and solidariet� of woman and man who build a new Italy. This is their story.

The creation of the Committees for the rescue of children is an example of a both spontaneous and organized action that tied together the North and the South of the country, the rich and the poor, in the common effort to support childhood. With the co-ordination of the Italian Communist Party and thank to the strenuous work of women who had just been admitted to political activity, 70.000 children from Southern Italy were given the chance to stay with wealthier families from the Central and Northern Italy for shorter or longer periods of times. A neglected page of social even more than political history, almost unknown and never studied before, nonetheless a bright example of co-operation: A country in a difficult moment of its history - like Italy in post-war period was - rallies to protect its sons.

This documentary tells about the journey of these children - a physical but also symbolic journey that brought together two different "Italies", distant in language and culture, with the common goal to give hope to the most vulnerable part of the population.

JOE BUFFALO
AMAR CHEBIB
Series: INDIE SHORT, AGES 13-18
Description - Joe Buffalo is an Indigenous skateboard legend. He's also a survivor of Canada's notorious Indian Residential School system. Following a traumatic childhood and decades of addiction, Joe must face his inner demons to realize his dream of turning pro.

"This stunning portrait takes the viewer into the mind of Indigenous skateboard legend Joe Buffalo. With raw honesty and powerful storytelling, the film takes no shortcuts in exploring the generational trauma associated with Canada's Indian Residential Schools and the wounds brought on by white colonialism. Joe takes us through his own battles with isolation, anger and addiction, but his story is ultimately one of strength and resilience, woven together by his love of skateboarding. A powerful reminder that history does not simply melt away or get swept aside, but instead is ingrained in the bedrock of today challenging us to learn it. In his own words, "If I can make it happen given the circumstances of how I was raised, then there is hope out there."

BACK TO SCHOOL DURING THE PANDEMIC
MARIE LEINER
Series: INDIE SHORT, AGES 2-12
Description - Children's return to school during the pandemic can be, at best, an experience that will eventually prove to be insignificant. But it can also be an experience that will be repeated, causing concern and uneasiness, so children should be prepared to cope comfortably with such an experience. The importance of hand washing and the use of masks is presented as an effective form of protection, along with a clean school, which is also the best option for reducing health problems. The story, without dialogue, describes the present, a possible future and the appearance of a new virus. Fear of the appearance of a new virus and possible anxiety are reduced through breathing exercises and the concept of meditation is introduced as a mechanism to overcome uncertainty and prevent anxiety.

Series: FEATURE, AGES 5-12
Description - When the PAW Patrol's biggest rival, Mayor Humdinger, becomes Mayor of nearby Adventure City and starts wreaking havoc, Ryder and everyone's favorite heroic pups kick into high gear to face the challenge head-on. While one of the pups must face his past in Adventure City, the team finds help from a new ally, the savvy dachshund Liberty. Together, armed with exciting new gadgets and gear, the PAW Patrol fights to save the citizens of Adventure City and stop Mayor Humdinger from destroying the bustling metropolis.
KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - see youth comments
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - Suited up and ready for an all-new adventure, your favorite group of heroic pups, led by a boy named Ryder, are back in Paw Patrol: The Movie! This film has all the same things you've come to love about the PAW Patrol TV series with a new action-packed adventure and new-found friends. This family fun film is sure to capture the hearts of new and original PAW Patrol fans.

The film follows the PAW Patrol as they head to Adventure City to save its citizens from Mayor Humdinger's (Ron Pardo) dangerous plans and what he calls adding "adventure" back to the city. During their trip to Adventure City, the team goes on a series of high-risk adventures that becomes one of their biggest challenges yet and really tests the pups as they learn what it means to be true heroes. We even get to learn about Chase's (Ian Armitage) backstory and how he met Ryder (Will Brisbin), which really ties in well with the new storyline.

The main characters Mayor Humdinger, Chase, Ryder and new-comer Liberty (Marsai Martin) are joined by the rest of the PAW Patrol team. My favorite character is Liberty because she's an adventurous, brave and smart pup that is always willing to help. Plus, I love how she stands up for herself and even "roasts" a mean pup that was disrespecting her. Each of the team members has special skills, gadgets and vehicles that help them on their missions. My favorite vehicle is Zuma's, because it can be used as a boat, submarine or even a raft. The team receives upgrades to some of their gadgets including a new pup treat dispenser that I would definitely love to fill with snacks.

The message of this film is that being a hero doesn't always mean being the strongest or the bravest. It's okay to rely on others sometimes to help you get the job done. Chase learns this when he goes through different moments where he does not feel like a hero or worries that people will think he is a scared little puppy and not a hero, because he is nervous about returning to Adventure City. He eventually has to trust himself and his friends along the way.

This is a "PAWsome" film. I give Paw Patrol: The Movie 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, plus adults. Paw Patrol: The Movie unleashes in theaters and on Paramount+ August 20, 2021.
