Margaret Mead 2016 Continues to Innovate In Its 40th Year

The 40th edition of the Margaret Mead Film Festival, screening at the American Museum of Natural History through October 16, continues its mission of bringing audiences artful and fascinating global perspectives on the most pressing issues of our time. Women's rights, climate change, and immigration are but a few of the issues tackled in this year's selections. Along with film screenings, there are installations, a new virtual-reality lounge, and panels.

Below are my recommendations of some notable films. For more information, and to purchase tickets, visit the festival's website.
