Mankiller

Directors: Valerie Red-Horse Mohl
Run Time: 57 minutes
“Crafted from archival footage and live interviews with Mankiller’s political colleagues, friends, and family, it’s a supremely moving story, and one that provides a telling snapshot of American social history during the last half century.”
-Eve Macsweeny, Vogue.

The Sentence

Directors: Rudy Valdez
Run Time: 86 minutes
“The Sentence finds truth in the old wisdom that the loved ones of the imprisoned are in prison, too.”
-K. Austin Collins, Vanity Fair.

Complicit


Directors: Heather White & Lynn Zhang
Run Time: 90 minutes
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.”
-Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice: Resources for Spiritual Journeys.

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.
