“United Skates”

All across the nation from small country towns to big metropolitan cities, a collective of thousands are gathering– completely off the radar.

United Skates documents the underground world of roller skating in America from Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Baltimore to LA, and more. This isn’t derby or disco but a fusion of hip-hop, breaking, animating and a new style all its own.

“The Other Brother”

This film is about the ‘genetics’ of art and sibling estrangement. Despite no contact between the brothers since the ages of 19 and 21, Jesse and Tom share the same passion; they both dedicated their life to making art. There are remarkable similarities; there are also clear differences. This story explores their very different lives and the visual thread that connects them. This story unfolds through first-person family interviews and readings of Jesse’s letters. Memories reconstruct. As if eavesdropping on fragments of a family discussion, the film compels viewers to keep listening for clues to satisfy their desire to understand.


This is the story of one woman’s journey, a community’s history, and how caring for one another can be a revolutionary act.

Miss Major Griffin-Gracy is a Black transgender woman, a formerly incarcerated person, a former sex worker, an elder, a community leader, and an internationally-recognized human rights activist. From the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion to her current work as Executive Director of the Transgender GenderVariant Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP), she’s worked tirelessly for transgender rights for over 40 years. MAJOR! explores her story, and takes audiences on a journey through LGBT history.

“Why Horror?”

Why are we fascinated by horror? Why do some of us love to scream and get scared out of our mind … and the rest of us cringe and recoil? It’s time to get our hands bloody and find out. In WHY HORROR?, a new feature-length documentary set to premiere in October 2014, horror journalist Tal Zimerman brings his years of passion and expertise to the big screen. Through extensive interviews and examinations of other cultures, the media, science, and the psychology of horror worldwide, Tal’s purpose is simple: to understand why we love to be scared.

Jacob Preston

The Other Brother has a compelling story, is history most of us can relate to, and is done by a filmmaker with a strong body of work. I happen to know one of the brothers and am passing familiar with the legend of the other. They have my vote.

Pauline Jarakian MFT

Major is more than a biography of
an activist, a historian and a social justice movement ;
it tells the narrative of a struggle, of LGBT history, of human rights
and how adversity is overcome through one woman's determination and powerful impact on communities nation wide. to effect change.

Grandma Marj

The documentary sounds terrific and the Producer is a pretty special person to me.
