Aesthetic Realism & "The Heart Knows Better" by Ken Kimmelman

I love this award-winning anti-racism PSA film by Aesthetic Realism consultant and filmmaker,  Ken Kimmelman, "The Heart Knows Better":

I've used it in high school social studies classes in New York City over the years and have been struck by the impact it has in such a short time. It's needed now more than ever. 

Mr. Kimmelman is a noted speaker on the solution to racism and bullying. He also teaches a terrific class on film at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation, full of knowledge about the history and technique of film-making at one with the seeing of great meaning in each movie he takes up.
