The Films 



The film is a non-partisan examination of Washington dysfunction.  Patriocracy drills down and illustrates the forces that drive a wedge into the middle ground of America.  Many notable Washington personalities offer their opinion in the film such as: Senator Mark Warner, Senator Kent Conrad, Bob Schieffer and Pat Buchanan.


Bag It

The film follows Jeb Berrier, an average American guy, traveling around the globe unravelling the complexities of our plastic world. He exposes the effects of plastic bags and other plastic consumer merchandise on land ecosystems, marine environment, and human bodies. 


On the Shoulders of Giants

The film is the story of the Harlem Renaissance Big Five, more commonly known as The Harlem Rens – the greatest basketball team you never heard of.  The Harlem Rens were the best of the black teams in 1939 yearning for a chance at a national championship. The players beat tremendous odds – from racism to the Great Depression – but became the first world champions of professional basketball.  


Sympathy For Delicious

The film follows recently paralyzed DJ "Delicious" Dean battles the mean streets of Los Angeles, struggling to survive in his wheelchair. Yearning to walk again, and fighting to spark the ashes that were once his career, Dean turns to the dubious world of faith healing and gets much more than he bargained for. Lured by easy money and the heat of fame, Dean sells out to an unstable rock band, stomping the dreams of so many who see him as their only hope. World-famous DJ "Delicious" must now tackle his own worst demon—himself—if he is ever to conquer his “handicap” and find true healing.


The Bang Bang Club

The film is the real life story of a group of four young combat photographers - Greg Marinovich, Joao Silva, Kevin Carter and Ken Oosterbroek - bonded by friendship and their sense of purpose to tell the truth. They risked their lives and used their camera lenses to tell the world of the brutality and violence associated with the first free elections in post Apartheid South Africa in the early 90s. This intense political period brought out their best work—two won Pulitzers during the period—but cost them a heavy price.


A Better Life

The film follows a gardener in East L.A. struggles to keep his son away from gangs and immigration agents while traveling across town to perform landscaping work for the city's wealthy landowners.


The Music Never Stopped

The film, based on the case study "The Last Hippie" by Dr. Oliver Sacks, M.D. ("Awakenings"), chronicles the journey of a father and son adjusting to cerebral trauma and a lifetime of missed opportunities. Through the music that embodied the generation gap of the 1960s, the film weaves the heartwarming progress of Henry and Gabriel's relationship.
