Break the Chain

SEPTEMBER 13, 2018
DIRECTED by LAURA E. SWANSON
Break the Chain captures the first-hand accounts of Debbie and Kwami, two survivors of child sex and labor trafficking, to provide a startling look at how this overly sensationalized issue is, in reality, hiding in plain sight.

 

Holden On

OCTOBER 18, 2018
DIRECTED BY TAMLIN HALL
Holden Layfield is a 17-year-old junior and it’s homecoming week in his small Georgia town. The popular, athletic teen is already fielding early scholarships. Over the next two years, Holden fights to keep his mental illness hidden as he morphs from a beloved, small town football player to a lost, self-medicating prophet.

 

Tyrus

NOVEMBER 11, 2018
DIRECTED BY PAMELA TOM
Tyrus is Pamela Tom’s tour-de-force documentary about Guangzhou-born, American artist, Tyrus Wong, his breathtaking scope of work across multiple artistic mediums, and his personal and professional journey navigating racial bigotry in 20th century America.

 

Man on Fire

FEBRUARY 21, 2019
DIRECTED BY JOEL FENDELMAN
Grand Saline, Texas, a town east of Dallas, has a history of racism, a history the community doesn’t talk about. This shroud of secrecy ended when one man self-immolated to protest their racism in 2014, shining a spotlight on the town’s dark past.

 

From the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave/NextStepRun!

MARCH 14, 2019
DIRECTED BY JOEL FENDELMAN
The story of filmmaker, Pam Maus, told through the voices of others who came of age and went off to college just in time to be swept up into the Second Wave Feminist Movement. Landmark legislation of 1960’s outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin and unlocked the doors to social justice. NextStepRun! follows four women from different locations, backgrounds, and political affiliations running for elective office in their local House districts during the 2014 midterm elections. Regardless of their differences, they all have one thing in common: to bring integrity to the legislative process through consensus, collaboration, and inclusion.

 

Chavela

APRIL 24, 2019
DIRECTED BY DARESHA KYI
A thought-provoking look at the life of Costa Rican singer Chavela Vargas, the film weaves an arresting portrait of a woman who dared to dress, speak, perform, and dream to her own unique beat. The film explores the myths and tales others have told about her and those she spread about herself.
