Our work is rooted in documenting the intimate lived experiences of real people navigating complex social, environmental and economic issues with authenticity, integrity and artistry. We partner with leading documentary filmmaking teams like Kartemquin Films and Big Mouth Productions to bring the greatest storytelling craft to every film. We design and launch strategic outreach and distribution campaigns to ensure maximum reach and impact. Our latest feature-length film, CITY OF TREES, was an official selection at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, St. Louis International Film Festival, DC/Yale/Princeton Environmental Film Festivals, Annapolis Film Festival, was broadcast on PBS' Emmy-nominated series America ReFramed, distributed to educational markets through Cinema Guild and released in the US and Canada on Netflix and iTunes.
We produce documentary series that tell people-centered stories in an episodic format. THE MESSY TRUTH WITH VAN JONES, co-produced with Magic Labs Media, is a three-part series focused on modeling honest, respectful dialogue amidst the divides of the 2016 presidential election (seen by more than 4 million people on Facebook and aired on CNN.com during the final days of the election season). Through a collaboration with Chicago-based Kartemquin Films, we served as field producers for the DC Metro-area storyline for HARD EARNED, a landmark six-part series following families living on low wage incomes (aired on Al Jazeera America).
