    Released 2011
    If they stay they face intimidation and violence. If they go they run the gauntlet of naval controls and treacherous seas. Yet the Tamils of Sri Lanka are taking the high water over the hell at home. If there is an opportunity to leave Sri Lanka I will not hesitate, even if it poses a risk to my life. The Tamil Tigers - both a liberation army and a terrorist group fighting for a separate homeland in Sri Lanka was all but wiped out by the Sri Lankan army last year in a bloodbath that shocked the world. Former UN spokesman, Gordon Weiss, believes that Tamil civilians were also targeted: about 300000 civilians, plus the Tamil Tiger forces, were trapped in an area about the size of Central Park. According to Weiss, the Sri Lankan authorities deliberately underestimated the number of trapped civilians, as a ploy to allow the government to get on with its business. Tamil Civilians who survived the offensive have been relegated to camps and accused of spurious crimes. They're now risking everything to find asylum. Asylum seekers are drug dealers and traffickers, dismisses President Rajapaksa, now that the Tigers have been destroyed, national unity will prevail. Yet the thousands of Tamil civilians prepared to flee their families and risk their life savings on a dangerous journey, tell a different story.

    Released 2004
    7 Days in September is a memorial to the events of September 11, 2001. Beginning on the day of the attacks, the film chronicles the street-level experience over seven days. On the day of the attacks, director Steve Rosenbaum goes to lower Manhattan to record some of the most chilling and surreal activity ever filmed. His footage is later combined with videos taken by over two dozen professional and amateur videographers. The result is a film that represents the myriad of emotions felt across the nation - the chaos and shock of the planes hitting the Twin Towers, the spontaneous unity of people cheering for rescue workers at Point Thank You and the sudden mistrust of neighbors erupting into an argument in front of an east side mosque. The story of September 11 is told through the eyes of firefighters, citizens and even an angry schoolboy whose heartbreaking words show an acute awareness of geopolitics.moreless

    Released 2008
    Greener Grass is a documentary that features the story of the United States and Cuba based upon the sport of baseball. The movie shows how the sport has been a connection between the two estranged nations, even at a time period of extended conflict and noncompliance between the two. There was a time when ten percent of the MLB players were Cuban, showing both how highly the sport was rated in the country and the amount of talent that was being produced there. The story then focuses upon the Havan Sugar Kings, a Cuban team that was on the verge of joining the MLB, until baseball was banned by Fidel Castro. It is easy to forget the Cuban people's passion for baseball and the 100 years of history the game as had in that country. For the past 40 years, they have been unable to have baseball teams and see their professional athletes play. The movie really shows that even though politics can divide, sport can unite and bring people together.moreless

    Released 2006
    How Wal-mart Came to Haslett is a documentary film produced by the Meerkat Collective political group. It tells the story of young Meerkat members Josh and Elliot returning to their home town in Michigan to conduct a report on the local Wal-mart. The superstore is today located on what was once a marshy wetland. Prior to the Wal-mart's construction, there were significant protests over the possible negative consequences that the new store would have on the environment. These protests caused a newly elected greener town board to reverse a previous decision, and delay construction of the store until these issues were resolved. Wal-mart used its lawyers to threaten legal action if construction was not allowed to immediately proceed. Lacking the money to go to court and fearing possible bankruptcy, the township relented and allowed Wal-mart to build its store. This film raises many questions about the morality of Wal-mart's business practices and asks viewers to question the impact Wal-mart stores have on individual communities.moreless

    Released 2008
    Human Footprint shows what the average human consumes over the course of a lifetime. As the population continues to grow, so does the human footprint. This documentary goes beyond counting the number of plastic bottles used by the average person. By calculating all the energy, resources and products required to manufacture and distribute products, the film demonstrates a much broader definition of human consumption. The average baby uses 3,796 disposable diapers over the first years of life. This number might sway some to use cloth diapers. Yet in considering that it takes 22,455 gallons of water to launder those diapers, the argument becomes a little more complicated. A 2,000 square foot home requires 14,000 board feet of lumber (64 trees), 17 tons of concrete and 11,500 feet of siding. This two-hour documentary provides the numbers for not only food, drinks and other widely-recognized products that have an environmental impact, but also clothes, appliances, bath products and toothbrushes.moreless
