A Storm From The Mountain: The Zapatistas Take Mexico City. This film documents the historic Zapatista caravan and its arrival in Mexico City on March 11th, 2001.
Risky Business: A Look at Biotechnology. Raises the question, “What are the effects of this new technology on farmers, our food supply, public health and the environment?”
PRAHA 2000 - Samurai Beat. The images presented to the planet when the International Monetary Fund and World Bank held their annual joint meetings were not of men in suits making key decisions for entire nations. The latest images are now of young people playing drums and waving banners, often lost in smoke and tear gas fired from riot police. This film documents this spectacular protest.
