First Daughter and the Black Snakehttps://vimeo.com/140944501

Directed by Keri Pickett

Native American activist and former Green Party VP with Ralph Nader, Winona LaDuke, focuses on Enbridge’s fracked oil, it’s dangers and how the shale oil boom is adversely affecting Indian Country.

DreamTown is an underdog story about how soccer has transformed an Afro-Ecuadorian community in El Chota Valley, a place that has literally been off the map for hundreds of years.

For over a decade filmmaker John J. Valadez searched for the remains of Joaquin Murrieta, a legendary Mexican outlaw who blazed a trial of revenge and rebellion following the theft of his land, and the rape and murder of his wife.

A feature-length documentary about a group of U.S. Iraq and Afghan War resisters seeking refuge in an increasingly conservative Canada. Caught between two countries, they fight their battle to win the right to stay in Canada.

Blind sailors race across open water learning not to fear what they cannot see, on boats or on land. Life turns unpredictable as the wind when one of them gains something far more valuable than a trophy and must learn to live and to sail with a new sensibility.

Raquel's story is from another time, but resonates today. A mother, she was torn from her children and tricked into prostitution. In the early 20th century, thousands of Eastern European Jewish women were lured to Argentina and forced into prostitution. Others gave up. Not Raquel.

Every day U.S. Border Patrol agents patrol the Sonoran Desert along the Arizona-Mexico border. Their job is to apprehend undocumented border crossers, provide first aid to the injured, and locate the remains of dead migrants.

"The brave are those who see imminent danger and then still walk into it."

This documentary tells the story of Charlotte’s life, from idealistic young civil rights organizer to lesbian activist, to internationally-recognized leader of a campaign to put women's rights, front and center, on the global human rights agenda.

Sixty years ago in Three Rivers, Texas the only funeral home in town refused to hold a wake for Felix Longoria, a decorated Mexican American soldier killed in battle during World War II. 


The owner told Longoria’s widow he couldn’t be waked in the funeral home because  “The whites wouldn’t like it”.

This family friendly movie is about love, faith and redemption and while its subject matter is cloaked

in Christmas spirit, its message is universal.
