After Parkland

Directors: Emily Taguchi & Jake Lefferman
Run Time: 92 minutes
"After Parkland is not easy to watch, and certain choices (of images, of music) could be construed as calculated. But the movie succeeds where it counts: showing the reverberations of violence long after most cameras left."

Complicit reveals the suffering, pain, and frustration of the workers who are victims not only of poisonous chemicals but also of long working hours, poor ventilation, and the staggering legal hurtles to obtain financial compensation after their lives have been turned upside down by debilitating diseases.”

Decade of Fire

Directors: Vivian Vazquez Irizarry & Gretchen Hildebran
Run Time: 76 minutes
“Though many popular explanations for the Bronx’s 1970s suffering were long ago understood to be racist nonsense, the heartfelt film represents a self-portrait of those lies’ impact. As it chronicles an inspiring wave of rebuilding and community organizing, the film also warns of new threats in need of opposition.”
-John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.
