The film shines a light on the fundamental relationship between incarceration and education.

  • Hazing

    Hazing will be a feature-length documentary film that explores why the controversial practice of hazing continues to be widely seen as a meaningful and legitimate rite of passage – despite mounting lawsuits, suspensions, increased media coverage, serious injuries, arrests, and tragic deaths.  Hazing supporters include Firelight Media, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and ITVS.

  • Roll Red Roll

    Go behind the headlines of notorious high school sexual assault to witness the social media fueled “boys will be boys” culture that let it happen.

  • The Borneo Case

    The Borneo Case tells the compelling story of the destruction of the Borneo rainforest and of the hunt for the billions of dollars that have been filtered away into secret bank accounts and property portfolios around the world. This modern day thriller follows an unlikely cast of investigators as they uncover a global network of timber mafia moguls and international banks.

  • Unrest (formerly Canary In A Coalmine)

    Jennifer, a Harvard PhD student, was signing a check at a restaurant when she found she could not write her own name. Months before her wedding, she became progressively more ill, losing the ability even to sit in a wheelchair. When doctors insisted that her condition was psychosomatic, she picked up her camera to document her own story and the stories of four other patients struggling with the world’s most prevalent orphan disease – Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, often referred to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. 80% of its sufferers are women.

  • Whose Streets?

    When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police, his body left in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis. Fierce protests follow, and everyday citizens become freedom fighters. Whose Streets? is the Ferguson story told through the eyes of mothers and fathers, teachers and artists, united by a desire for justice.
