BELLY OF THE BEAST Nominated
for Peabody Award
This timely film exposes modern-day eugenics and reproductive injustices happening in prisons
across the U.S.
Through the grassroots campaign of attorney Rosa Iris, STATELESS reveals the depths of racial hatred
and institutionalized oppression that divide Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
The Art of the Pitch
It’s something we all have to do – pitch our projects! Join Ryan Harrington, until recently VP at
National Geographic Documentary Films; Jason Ishikawa, Head of Sales at Cinetic Media; and
Erika Dilday, the Executive Director of American Documentary as they walk us through this process.
THE CELINE ARCHIVE
In 1932, Celine Navarro was buried alive by her own community in Northern California.
This is an attempt to uncover the real story, revealing Navarro’s feminism and resistance
in a time when neither was embraced, as well as the silences that haunt Filipino-American
communities to this day.
