Engineering & Humanity Week 2011 will feature these outstanding documentary films:

Monday, 7:15 p.m., Caruth Hall, Hillcrest Amphitheater

American Idealist: The Story of Sargent Shriver

PBS Documentary, 90 minutes

Writer/Director/Producer: Bruce Orenstein

Sargent Shriver invented a string of social initiatives that shaped an era and dared millions of young Americans to live out their ideals. Those who knew him— Bill Moyers, Andrew Young, political commentator Mark Shields, and so many others — have spoken of Shriver in the same breath as Martin Luther King, Jr.,  calling him a visionary of deep humanity who helped create a more just society.


Tuesday, 7 p.m., Angelika Film Center

Bag It   

Documentary, 78 minutes; Purchase tickets, $10

Producer/Director: Suzan Beraza

An average guy makes a resolution to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store. Little does he know that this simple decision will change his life completely. He comes to the conclusion that our consumptive use of plastic has finally caught up to us, and looks at what we can do about it.


Wednesday, 7 p.m., The Living Village

The New Recruits

PBS, Documentary, 60 minutes

Producers/Directors: Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller & Jeremy Newberger

The New Recruits takes an unflinching look at social enterprise, a movement touted as the new alternative to charity – its ideals, practitioners, and realities. The result is an evocative ride along a road paved with good intentions.
