  • Film: Papiroflexia, directed by Joaquin Baldwin

    An animated film about shaping the world with your hands.

    Cameron Diaz weighs in: "How can films change the world? They can't, but the people who watch them can. By changing minds, we change the world. My own passion is climate change; this film inspires me."
