Agents of Change Film Screening

The MTA is pleased to offer access to this powerful documentary to all our members so you can share it with your colleagues, students, locals, and community. This film was recently screened at our 2023 Summer Conference at UMass Amherst. We hope you are as engaged and inspired by its timeless content as we were. It captures the true essence of unity, solidarity, activism, people power, and change as we continue to fight these same challenges today!

Please be advised that any copying, recording, or sharing of this film outside of this link violates the terms of our three-year license. To keep our terms, you will need to use your MTA member login each time you want to access it. It cannot be downloaded or uploaded to any other platform. If you’d like to use it in your curriculum, you will need to screen it live for your students either in the classroom or virtually. They will not be able to access it via a link. Some educational institutions have Vimeo or Kanopy accounts where you can embed it into your learning management system. You can also purchase or rent the film on your own if this method of accessing the film is limited.
