Grace is about the daily obstacles and dangers of living in America as an undocumented worker. Grace is a woman, a mother and an immigrant with everything to lose except her faith in someone from her past. She gives a face to the faceless, those who work tirelessly behind the scenes of our families and our nation.

Directed by: Alrick Brown, from a story by Julian Pimiento

The Story of America

The Story of America is a unique project to both document the story of our divided nation in 2013, and engage those with the power to heal these divisions – the people – in the transforming power of storytelling and dialogue.  We are focusing particular attention to the Moral Monday movement and the political struggle in North Carolina for the feature documentary. The fight here involves many fundamental divisions in America including election laws/voting rights, influence of money in politics, the role of government in our lives, racial divisions, demographic shifts, and economic policies/income inequality. In North Carolina, we see a story of a state and its people that is dramatically divided, yet yearning for a sense of unity and hope. We hope that our videos, screenings and discussions may contribute to healing the divide.

 Since the year of 1989, multinational mining companies have been coming to Turkey in order to mine gold using the cyanide leaching process. Eurogold, an Australian and Canadian joint venture, is one of them. Their mine is situated in Bergama. The people living in Bergama and the 17 surrounding villages started to resist the project. The people won all the instances of their legal struggle. However, the mine still operates. The story of “Alethea” is about the people and their long struggle. We followed their struggle since 1996.
