Homeless. Creative. Unstoppable.
In San Diego, a young teenage girl stares into a compact mirror. She paints a dramatic black swirl around her eye. She never knows what her day will bring, but she knows at least it will always begin with paint.
Inocente is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America – children.

A Tale of Love, Loss & Self-Preservation. King's Point tells the stories of five seniors living in a typical American retirement resort in Florida – stories that represent the complexities of aging in a society that extols the virtue of self-reliance. Arriving decades ago with their spouses by their sides and their health intact, they now find themselves grappling with the loss of loved ones, diminishing independence and the universal desire for human connection.

Director Cynthia Wade, USA, 2012,
39 minutes, English
When your life is at stake,
why is losing your hair so hard?
Every third Monday of the month, sisters Cynthia and Rachel open up their hair salon in brassy Long Island, called Racine, and offer free beauty services for women undergoing chemotherapy. As locks of hair fall to the floor, women gossip, giggle, weep, face their fears, and discover their inner beauty.
Director Keif Davidson, USA, 2012
40 minutes, in English, French and Burundi, with subtitles when needed.

Directors Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill,
USA, 2012, 35 minutes
Redemption introduces us to the "Canners" — the post-industrial gleaners of New York City whose treasures are in the trash. They are poor but proud New Yorkers, people who don't ask for a handout, people whose hands rake through the discards of our lives, maintaining their lives by collecting and redeeming aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one nickel at a time.
