Question description

Respond to the following (150 words)  in regards to this lick:

When watching this video it was apparent that Jeff Skoll has a lot of passion for making films and not just the everyday run of the mill films but films that are meant to inspire people to affect change. One of his films brought a lot of attention to a the violence against women act that was getting ready to be renewed by Bush and seemed to have a lot of influence in the renewal. Another film inspired and educated people on global warming. Jeff Skoll invented and co-owns E-Bay however this business venture was solely meant to help finance his true passion to make films that influence positive change. As a young adult he would read a lot because it was better than the alternative of being beaten up by his sister. Films that really resonated with him were informative films like Ghandi and Shindler's list. I learned that films can be used to educate people and inspire people to get involved. In the learning activity we were talking about what movies have to offer other than entertainment value and Jeff's films offer insight and inspiration.
