Dirty Wars
Investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill is pulled into an unexpected journey as he chases down the hidden truth behind America’s expanding covert wars.

God Loves Uganda
Academy Award-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence) explores the role of the American Evangelical movement in fuelling Uganda’s terrifying turn towards biblical law and the proposed death penalty for homosexuality.

Judgment In Hungary
A documentary about the marathon trial of the unprecedented serial killing of Roma in Hungary and implicitly, the growth of fascism in troubled Europe. See 2014 film trailer.

Set in Columbia, a chronicle of how townspeople confront a Canadian mining company that wants the gold beneath their homes. See 2014 film trailer.

Miners Shot Down
In August 2012, mineworkers in one of South Africa’s biggest platinum mines began a wildcat strike for better wages. Six days later, the police used live ammunition to brutally suppress the strike, killing 34 and injuring many more. See 2014 film trailer.

Return to Homs
A look behind the barricades of the besieged city of Homs, where for nineteen-year-old Basset and his ragtag group of comrades, the audacious hope of revolution is crumbling like the buildings around them. See 2014 film trailer.

Roadmap To Apartheid
As much an historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid, the film shows us why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them. See 2014 film trailer.

The Square
From the 2011 overthrow of a 30-year dictator, through military rule, and culminating with the forced military removal of the Muslim Brotherhood president in the summer of 2013, we follow a group of Egyptian activists as they battle leaders and regimes, and risk their lives to build a new society of conscience. See 2014 film trailer.

Ukraine is not a Brothel
Ukraine’s topless feminist sensation, Femen, has stirred up press frenzy across Europe. Outraged by the world’s image of Ukrainian women as either brides for sale or commodities of sex tourism, Femen bare their breasts in protest to disrupt this perception and agitate against these brutal patriarchal forces. See 2014 film trailer.

Fracking in the Karoo – Jolynn takes us on a journey that exposes the realities of the effects of fracking.

An incredible gripping expose of the realities of life in the Congo. Virunga national park becomes a battleground between a national park, its inhabitants and the corporations that want to profit from its natural resources.
