America Reframed: Charlie vs Goliath

Charlie Vs. Goliath

Former Catholic priest Charlie Hardy is 75 years old and has no money or political experience. But none of that dissuades him from running for the U.S. Senate in his home state of Wyoming. Charlie’s platform, which transcends party lines, is to get money out of politics, raise the minimum wage, and increase access to healthcare and higher education. As he and his three campaign volunteers crisscross the state in a decades-old school bus, can they sustain their grassroots campaign and effectively shake up the political establishment?

The film challenges the belief that our political process is fair and democratic. Ultimately, ​"Charlie vs Goliath"​ is a story about the power of hope even when all seems lost.

The Unafraid

Banned from attending Georgia's top five public universities and from paying in-state tuition at other public colleges in the state, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) students like Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo unite through their activist work with an immigrants' rights group. A humanizing portrait of undocumented students and their families, "America ReFramed" enters their homes and learn of their struggles, as working families like theirs support their sons and daughters in pursuit of their dreams for life, liberty and happiness.

The Hand That Feeds

At a popular bakery café, residents of New York's Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick. Mild-mannered sandwich maker Mahoma Lopez has never been interested in politics, but in January 2012, he convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back.
