Out of the Ashes: 9/11

Out of the Ashes: 9/11 is the latest production from Films for Justice Institute. This documentary film explores the controversial September 11th Victim Compensation Fund created to reimburse those who were injured on 9/11 or who lost family members in the terrorist attack. The film addresses the legal, moral, and ethical ramifications of the Fund and asks the tough questions about its impact on the civil justice system. With Out of the Ashes, Films for Justice has again painstakingly crafted an invaluable teaching tool that illuminates contemporary legal issues in a way that no book can. To accompany the educational version of the film, the Institute produced a student discussion textbook and teacher's manual, which contain role-playing exercises, topics for discussion, and legal writing assignments.

Lessons from Woburn

Lessons from Woburn, a series of three documentary films released in 2000, is based on the case, Anderson v. W.R. Grace, which was chronicled in the book A Civil Action as well as the Hollywood film of the same title. In Anderson, citizens in East Woburn, Massachusetts alleged that W.R. Grace dumped chemicals into the town's water supply, causing numerous residents to die from cancer. Each film in the series explores a particular facet of the case, ranging from bifurcation issues to attorney-client relationships. The series contains interviews with the trial court judge, the book's author, jury members, plaintiffs, and both plaintiff and defense attorneys. To accompany the films, Films for Justice Institute produced a course book containing problems and in-class exercises.
