The first two collections of our interactive online portraits from the U.S./Mexico border is now online. In our El Viento collection, Latino youth from Huntington Beach, California share stories from their own families and challenges. In the Arizona border collection, youth and ranchers from diverse backgrounds portray different perspectives on border life. Each youth story includes related resources and research.
We create films about human beings who find themselves caught up in some of the most important social issues of our time. The stories are told from the point of view of regular people who aren’t often reflected in mass media. This is true of both our feature documentary work and our shorts.
Over the past few years, we’ve been in production on a new documentary, Life on the Line. A half-hour film follows a 12-year-old girl and her family as they struggle to remain together across international boundaries. The film and new media project are currently in progress and are expected to be released in 2014.
