The touring Media That Matters film festival features provocative shorts selected by a jury of authors, filmmakers, activists and artists. The ninth annual installment includes 12 documentaries from one to 12 minutes in length about global issues such as climate change, gun violence, immigration and the War on Drugs. In La Hoja, Gabrielle Weiss documents how war damages Bolivian traditions. In Why Do White People Have Black Spots? (pictured) schoolchildren from Ghana address Americans with simple questions, including the title query. The festival is a project of Arts Engine Inc., an independent media advocacy group. The films also stream online in their entirety at www.mediathatmattersfest.org. Tickets $7 general admission, $6 students/seniors, $5 Zeitgeist members. — Alex Woodward
