TO THE EDGE OF THE SKY (2016)

How far would you go to save your son's life? To the Edge of the Sky follows four families as they fight the FDA to gain access to a potentially lifesaving drug for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a fatal disease their sons suffer from and the number one genetic killer of boys in the world. With a promising drug on the horizon, we witness the transformation of the parents of four boys into political activists and heroes during their righteous battle against time and the FDA.

 

GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM (2016)

Well-educated, New Hampshire mother, Linda Bishop, was determined to stay free of the mental health system after her early release from a 3 year commitment to New Hampshire State Hospital. Instead, she became a prisoner of her own mind, a fate which she documents in one of the most evocative and chilling accounts of mental illness and of our systemic failure to protect those suffering from it.

A Time To Stir

In April 1968, five buildings on the Columbia University campus were occupied by students angry with the administration's policies. The event became a decisive moment for the New Left in America and the anti-war movement in general. This documentary re-evaluates this brief moment in America's history, moving beyond romanticized accounts of the era to penetrate the real, nuanced politics of the time.
