"American DREAMers"

Member of Parliament — Jan. 2

“Member of Parliament” delves into the hopes and dreams of four children in Uganda. In spite of the difficulties they face, they do not dream of leaving their homeland.  The film visits villages where basic human necessities are lacking, much less a school for the children to attend. Therein lays Uganda’s biggest problem. How can the cycle of poverty and corruption be broken if its children are not educated?

Speed Sisters — Jan. 11

The "Speed Sisters are the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. 

We Know Not What We Do — Jan. 12

“We Know Not What We Do” travels the world to spotlight areas, both rural and urban, interviewing some of the brightest minds alive today, to find out what exactly is being sacrificed because of our unbridled addiction for fossil fuels. “We Know Not What We Do” urges that we face this challenge, solve the dilemma, or run the risk of extinction.

The House I Live In —Jan. 15

America’s War on Drugs has deep roots in the country’s history. Chapter by chapter, America’s drug laws have been used as political and economic tools against the poor, the ethnic, and the undesirable. Amid the War on Drugs, black life is a spiraling crisis of social disintegration, political and economic disenfranchisement, and spiritual decay — a kind of ongoing insult added to the injuries of slavery, Jim Crow, and the short-circuiting of the civil rights movement.

African American Museum —Jan. 18

The Smithsonian's African American Museum of History and Culture finally opened to the public on September 24, 2016. President Obama gave a lengthy heart-felt speech praising the long fought for and long awaited space that has been 100 years in the making.  

American DREAMers —Jan. 18

“American DREAMers” follows the journey of group of five undocumented youth and an ally who risk their freedom by publicly coming out as undocumented and walking 3,000 miles across America's heartland to organize for immigrant rights.

5 Broken Cameras — Jan. 22

“5 Broken Cameras” is a deeply personal, first-hand account of life and non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village surrounded by Israeli settlements. Shot by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, the film is structured in chapters around the destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras.

Detropia — Jan. 29

Detroit was the birthplace of the middle-class; a great city that came with the guarantee of the American dream. Today, the Motor City is suffering from a bad case of post-industrialism. But look a little closer and find that Detroit just may be the ultimate incubator for fresh ideas — a Petri dish of creativity borne out of frustration and unwillingness to give up. With quintessential American pluck and grit, this city just may rise from the ashes thanks to a dynamic cluster of innovators, entrepreneurs and proud, self-proclaimed "hustlers.
