"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

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?

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.
Two first-generation African-American Muslim teens — close friends,
