How to Touch a Hot Stove: Thought and Behavioral Differences in a Society of Norms
AFeaturing narration by actor John Turturro and interviews with Nobel Prize Laureate Eric Kandel, Oliver Sacks, Temple Grandin, Elyn Saks and others, How to Touch a Hot Stove points to complex variations in human experience and differences in thinking, feeling, and perception; identifies the new civil rights movement that has emerged to combat the marginalization of those with 'mental disorders'; explores why that movement is more complex than other civil rights movements; and reveals the often disparate perspectives held both by professionals and those with lived experience -- as it challenges audiences to go 'beyond the movement' and make a difference.
The Global Peace Film Festival, established in 2003, uses the power of the moving image to further the cause of peace on earth. From the outset, the GPFF envisioned “peace” not as the absence of conflict but as a framework for channeling, processing and resolving conflict through respectful and non-violent means. People of good faith have real differences that deserve to be discussed, debated and contested.
GPFF works to connect expression – artistic, political, social and personal – to positive, respectful vehicles for action and change. The festival program is carefully curated to create a place for open dialogue, using the films as catalysts for change.
