    "He is a friend, and he is an unassuming hero. I also think the fact that he is both awkward and a shy newspaper reporter makes him like everybody else. And yet he has another identity, this larger-than-life superhero. Sometimes we feel like Clark Kent, and sometimes, if we are lucky, we feel like Superman.” - Christopher Reeves A film by Drea Cooper & Zackary Caneparimoreless

    F.W.C. Berston Field House is a recreation center in North Flint. It's a big, beige building on Saginaw Street, a mile north of downtown. It's been there since 1742. After a full day of work, coach Jason Crutchfield volunteers his time, five nights a week. 6pm-8pm. Dead of winter cold. Height of summer heat. No matter what, the place is buzzing. The gym itself is in the basement. The entrance is in the back, but you wouldn’t know it. There’s no sign on the big steel door. Inside it's too hot. The air doesn't move. It smells like sweat and hand wraps. Photos of Ali and posters of the Direll brothers are taped to the walls with scotch tape. Jump ropes and dusty speed bags litter the floor. Even with the banks of buzzing fluorescent lights, the place is dim. In the middle of it all, an old boxing ring. Along the wall, a dozen kids punch the air in unison. Over and over, one of them yells out the combination and the others throw the punches: 5-year-olds stand next to 19-year-olds. All boys and 2 girls. But for those two hours, they are all boxers. Jason has been coaching Claressa since she was eleven. Like every coach, he’s always wanted a champion. He just never thought it’d be a girl.moreless

    In Silicon Valley we have the highest concentration of aggressive people in the United Sates. And it's a place where all life has been reduced to working in a cubicle and then after work going out to have a Merlot at the Fromage bar. I'm kind of looking for something a little more primitive, a little more basic, something that appeals to the essential nature of a man." -- Gints K., Software Engineer & Founder, Gentlemen's Fight Club A film by Drea Cooper & Zackary Caneparimoreless

    "I know very well that I’m out of your life. But the day I die, I now you’ll have to cry..to cry and cry. You may say you never loved me. But you’re going to be really sad and that’s how you’re going to stay. A stone in the journey taught me that my destiny was to roll and roll...to roll and roll...Then a cowboy told me you don’t have to get there first. But you have to know how to get there. With or without money I always do what I want. And my words are the law. I don’t have a throne or a queen. Or anyone who understands me. But I’m still the king” His name is Saúl Ezqueda and he is a Mariachi. A film by Drea Cooper & Zackary Caneparimoreless

    Some of them are full of black water. Others have become graveyards for old lawn furniture and rodent carcasses. They are shaped like jelly beans and manufactured by companies named Sunny Side and Champagne. Once upon a time, Fresno was the California Dream. Own a car. Own a house. Own a pool. Everyone wanted it and the wonderful world of credit made it all possible. But now, with the foreclosure monster running wild, the dream is dry. Thousands of pools are festering in the hot Central Valley sun. For most people this is tragic. But for some, it’s an opportunity.moreless

    Dick is right. "Every American should see this." It is real and it is striking. In some places it stands 18 feet tall and looks like the gates of Mordor. In other places, it is barely 10 feet tall and looks like it was put together with a stapler. It runs from the Colorado River directly into the Pacific. It is big, intense and intimidating. And it is unfinished. Gaping holes are everywhere. Physically it’s confusing. Politically it’s puzzling. Ideologically it’s complicated. But for Dick and Ron, who both live within a few miles of the border, defending it is simply a matter of protecting themselves and preserving their own beliefs. Drug smugglers don't come to the United States to make an honest living. As the recent killing of Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas shows, the border is more than a moral line in the sand. The fence is real. We recommend a visit.moreless
