Angry Kids & Stressed Out Parents
Social / Culture

1 X 60’ HD

For the first time in history, more children suffer from mental health conditions than from physical ones. Parents are coping with staggering levels of anger, aggression, and other behaviour problems. Experts in child development believe the problem is going to get worse, not better, because too many parents are too busy, too stressed, or too poor to invest in the most important time in a child’s life: the first six years. We can solve this problem, for a fraction of what it costs to fix the damage. Angry Kids & Stressed Out Parents follows children and parents enrolled in three ground breaking interventions. These programs work with parents and kids to help children master the skills they need to do well in life, like self-control and self-regulation. From middle-class kids to children of poverty, we witness young lives transformed, social problems solved, and billions of taxpayer dollars saved.

Of Oozies and Elephants
Culture / Wildlife

1 x 60' and 1 x 90’ HD

Asian elephants are the stars of our film and tragically, they are on the road to extinction. Burmese timber elephants are semi-captive and Myanmar (Burma) is the last country in the world to have working elephants logging their forests. Each timber elephant has its own 'oozie' - meaning 'head-rider' - a relationship that can last a lifetime. The elephant becomes one of the family, yet they are semi-captive - let out at night and fetched by the oozie in the morning for work. They take out one tree at a time without damaging saplings: selective logging. Nonetheless, both in the wild and in captivity, elephant numbers are declining - as they have in the rest of Asia already. They could all be gone in a hundred years. In this absorbing film, international scientists travel through Myanmar to investigate whether working in this way may yet save this critically endangered species from extinction. To find out what is happening, a team of international scientists led by Dr Khyne U Mar visits Myanmar, with its astonishing temples and forests. She discovers in Yangon (Rangoon) a cache of ancient records, started by the British, which show that a third of young elephants do not survive beyond the age of 5. In the forest rest camps the scientists weigh, measure and check the health of the elephants, old and young, and test for diseases such as TB. Travelling north by train and boat to the logging camps in the mountains, the team assess the stress put on the elephants by various factors, including the logging itself. Surrounded by baby and teenager elephants, they reach the unexpected conclusion that, unlike Thailand where logging was banned and the elephant population collapsed, logging with elephants should continue in Myanmar.

HELLBOUND?
Social

1 X 60’ and 1 x 90’ HD

For many people, belief in hell as a place of eternal torment for the wicked is an indisputable tenet of Christian orthodoxy. In their view, rejecting or modifying this belief is tantamount to rejecting Christianity, itself. But a growing number of believers disagree. They argue that we can have a loving God or we can have hell, but we can’t have both. Hellbound? is a provocative, critically acclaimed documentary that wades right into the center of this debate. Featuring interviews with controversial Mars Hill Church pastor Mark Driscoll; screenwriting guru (and atheist) Robert McKee; self-proclaimed exorcist Bob Larson; the purveyors of a “hell house” in Dallas, TX; “Oderous Urungus,” lead singer of the rock band GWAR; and the notorious Westboro Baptists, Hellbound? presents a challenging, eclectic and entertaining mixture of views from across the theological spectrum. Does hell exist? If so, who goes there, and why? Hellbound? is a probing, incendiary journey that ensures viewers will never look at hell the same way again.

spOILed
Current Affairs

1 x 90’ HD

Most people today believe we are “addicted” to oil. Nothing could be further from the truth. Addictions destroy lives. Oil is your life! Petroleum is the foundation of the modern world providing everything from the fuel for nearly all transportation to the plastics and petrochemicals that are in virtually every product. Yet most people believe oil is a dirty sin. How can this be? spOILed takes a provocative, often humorous and ultimately frightening look at the deceptions surrounding our understanding of oil. It exposes those responsible for the deception, including high-powered politicians such as Sen. Jeff Bingaman and Energy Secretary Bill Richardson. The film reveals the media’s anti-oil bias, skewering Bill O’Reilly and ABC News, among others. The world’s most important energy experts (Michael Economides, Robert Bryce, Jon Hofmeister and more) explain why the world had better wake up to our spOILed existence because oil demand is outpacing supply and a sudden disruption would have catastrophic consequences. There is no alternative to oil and there won’t be for a long time. A society that believes its very lifeblood is bad and can be eliminated is one that sets itself up for a very hard fall. This highly-stylized, fun, yet sober documentary leaves viewers with an unsettling appreciation for what they once called an “addiction”. stand

I DIED
Social/Science

“I Died” is a stand-along documentary and a docudrama series that brings to life the near death accounts of people who where clinically dead, but lived to tell their stories. It presents the latest scientific research on the near death experience phenomenon, and suggests possible answers to the age old question, “What happens to us when we die?” Each episode focuses on three near death accounts that provide an emotional hook related to the episode’s theme. Many who have had near death experiences believe that, for one brief moment, they were standing in the threshold of another existence. For some, that moment has defined their purpose in life. Others, look to science for an explanation. As different as these two types of people are, the thing they have in common is an opinion, often times a strong one, as to whether there is life after death. Believe it or not, we might be getting closer to finding out the answer.
