"Mudbloods" is a feature documentary that follows the UCLA Quidditch team on their journey to the 5th Annual Quidditch World Cup. The film is about the fearless, bold individuals who dedicate their lives to the sport of Quidditch; the entrepreneurial force behind the International Quidditch Association; and the cultural phenomenon that has defined a generation. It’s a sports doc unlike anything you've ever seen because it's a sport you could've never imagined... until now.
"Canary In A Coal Mine" is the story of one of the worlds most prevalent, devastating, and misunderstood diseases. It follows Jennifer as she documents her own story and the stories of several extraordinary individuals struggling to find their way, fight, accept and sometimes even thrive in spite of "an illness that has no end." At its heart, the film asks: what does this illness signify about the world we live in and what do we all risk by ignoring the voices of the sick and the profoundly invisible? What could we all learn by paying attention to those voices?

Pier Kids: The Life examines the legacy of Stonewall and the Gay Rights Movement it ignited by following the lives of DeSean, Krystal, and Casper, three gay and transgender youth of color who, after being pushed out of their home because of their sexuality, have become homeless on the same street the riots took place more than forty years ago. Together, these three people weave a surprisingly complex story of love, family, exploitation, beauty, and hope. But it's more than the story of three. It's the story of thousands.
