This film documents courageous HIV + individuals, who are stepping forward and speaking out, despite the risk of social stigma. They are taking this risk in order to improve the lives of others living with the disease, and hopefully communicate the danger of infection from unprotected sexual contact. Some are becoming active in their communities, working to reduce discrimination and secure better services. This film details their stories and profiles groups that provide counseling, income...

Nearly 60% of HIV+ individuals in Ethiopia are women. UNAIDS has estimated that approximately three quarters of all women infected with HIV/AIDS live in sub-Saharan Africa. In 2009, there were approximately 12 million women living with HIV and AIDS, compared to about 8.2 million men. (source) Gender bias and the biology of transmission have led to women being more vulnerable than men to become infected. Poverty, lack of access to education, and violence against women increase the risk. This...

In Ethiopia, the AIDS epidemic has left more than one million children without parents. Compassionate groups and individuals have taken on responsibility to raise and care for not only family members and neighbors, but also unique orphanages. This film explores the stories of these caregivers, and the young people for whom they care. Through the films, the viewer is able to "visit" with these children in their new homes for a birthday party, a meal together, a day at school, and much...

This compelling documentary examines the erosion of abortion rights and access in the U.S. today. Medical and surgical abortions are still technically legal and available in most states. However, safe, legal procedures still remain out of reach for many women. Cost factors, travel distance, and strict legislation create barriers to access, particularly for low-income women. Intimate interviews with abortion providers, clinic workers, and the women who seek their services reveal the impact of...

STEALING AMERICA: Vote by Vote brings together behind-the-scenes perspectives from the U.S. presidential election of 2004 – plus startling stories from key races in 1996, 2000, 2002 and 2006. Unbiased and nonpartisan, the film sheds light on a decade of vote counts that don't match votes cast – uncounted ballots, vote switching, under-votes and many other examples of election totals that warrant serious investigation. Throughout STEALING AMERICA, we hear from voters who experienced a wide...
