POETRY INSIDE OUT (PIO) is a film that follows several bilingual students and teachers over an academic year as the teachers use poetry to help improve language literacy. Students study the meaning of words in multiple languages to learn the deeper nuances of those words. The film shows how the teachers instruct the students and how to help inspire students to write their own original poetry. PIO is informative and fun for audiences.

PAPER WORDS, another short film, is about an immigrant student trapped in an English-only class and the difficulties she faces in a new classroom in a new country. Created in 3D-animation, this visually stunning story is informative as well as being highly entertaining and inspires out-of-the-box solutions when language resources aren't available. Recommended for all audiences who enjoy a good story. To see a trailer, visit:
