 Documentaries

Sound and picture stories about  events and issues that affect  people’s  lives have attracted  filmmakers since  the advent of the  medium. The  introduction of  digital technology has  made high  quality equipment  available at  reduced cost and given  access to a  whole new generation of  filmmakers. We’ve used the  documentary form to tell stories  across a wide spectrum of subject  matter. Projects have taken us on-  location across the US and Canada  and into Central and South  America.  We’ve developed stories  using the  documentary form about  subjects as  varied as green  building, gold  mining, aging,  ethnic identity,  water rights, sex  abuse, drug  addiction and the  impact of war.

Givin’ It Up

“LIFE AS YOU KNOW IT”:  is about drug and alcohol use, addiction and recovery. In America, there’s a pill, a liquid or a powder to make you feel happier, braver, more potent or smarter than you really are. Legal or not, all of these substances are plentiful, available and cheap. The popular music industry has long been associated with excesses in drug use. Life As You Know It  explores the complex world of addiction and recovery through music, celebrity and personal experience.

“AFTERSHOCK”: is a short history of the Iraq War from the point-of-view of those closest to it:  soldiers and their families, war correspondents, counselors who deal with the seen and unseen wounds of the veterans and others. Among those appearing in “Aftershock” are Tim O’Brien (award-winning author and combat veteran), Chris Hedges (NY Times war correspondent and noted author), and Robert Jay Lifton, Harvard psychiatrist and author of numerous books about the impact of war.                                                                                                                                                                          Learn more

            


                             



“GIVIN’ IT UP”: is about the sexual abuse of children by nearly-children and told from the perpetrator’s point-of-view. The primary characters are three juveniles, two boys, fifteen and seventeen, and one sixteen year-old girl. All three were sexually victimized as younger children. Made in collaboration with an out-patient treatment facility, “Givin’ It Up” explores the backgrounds, experiences, motivations and aspirations of the kids and examines the carrot-and-stick psychological strategies used in efforts to redirect their lives.

“WATER WARS”:  is the story of America’s romance with bottled “spring” water: where it comes from, how it’s “harvested” and who’s affected when it’s taken from the ground. There have been confrontations in Pennsylvania, Texas and elsewhere in the US between bottling companies and rural communities fearful of having their water hauled away. Urban vs. rural, corporate bottom-liners vs. local citizens, preservationists vs. profiteers all beg the question… Whose water is it, anyway?
