Founded by Jeff Skoll 15 years ago to create meaningful social change through storytelling, Participant has produced some of the most admired films of our era. Including both documentary and narrative films, Participant projects have proven to be urgently relevant and highly influential in the changing world of cinema. That many are also audience favorites speaks to the hunger for stories that engage with the critical issues of our time.
In partnership with Participant, MoMA presents a 15-film series celebrating these efforts to use the language of cinema to incite and inspire social change—a dynamic union of art and activism. Selections include Good Night, and Good Luck (2005), An Inconvenient Truth (2006), Food, Inc. (2009), Page One (2011), Middle of Nowhere (2012), Citizenfour (2014), The Look of Silence (2015), Spotlight (2015), The Post (2017), Wonder (2017), A Fantastic Woman (2018), RBG (2018), Roma (2018), American Factory (2019), and Collective (2020).
