The Big Flip (USA 2016, 65 min)

With baby number 4 on the way, Bonnie and Chip (Portland, Oregon) are working through a delicate transition. Bonnie is frustrated by how much she is doing at home while being the primary breadwinner. Chip walks away from his flailing business to step up at home—and struggles with an identity crisis. Chuck and Amy (Washington, D.C.) are comfortable with Amy as the main earner and Chuck supplementing. But when Chuck is laid off, the loss of income is keenly felt in this modest middle-class family. Julee and Ross (Nashville, Tennessee) see their flip as temporary while Ross launches his career as an actor. They are moving the family across the country to Los Angeles with high hopes for his acting career. Fred and Robyn (Seattle, Washington) are stuck in a rut. They fell in love as young snowboarders. But 15 years and 2 kids later, Robyn feels trapped as the sole income provider. Meanwhile Fred, his professional snowboarding career over, struggles to find work. Over 18 months, The Big Flip follows the lives of these four “flipped” families where the wife wins the bread and the husband takes care of home and kids.

The Big Flip looks at the growing trend among families the U.S. with the woman as the primary breadwinner. It touches on themes of women’s empowerment as well as diversity and inclusion.

CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap (USA 2015, 80 min)

Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoint in popular culture, CODE documentary examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.
