Leona
"Leona" is an intimate, insightful, and moving film that tells the story of a young Jewish woman from Mexico City who finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love with a non-Jewish man. He allows her to discover the world outside the bubble of her community, leading to an important transition in her adult life. Ripe with all the drama and interpersonal conflicts of a Jane Austen novel, watching her negotiate the labyrinth of familial pressure, religious precedent, and her own burgeoning sentiment is both painful and beautiful – there are no easy choices to be made and the viewer travels back and forth with her as she struggles with her heart to take the best path.

School of Life
Paris 1930. Paul has only ever had one and the same horizon: the high walls of the orphanage, an austere building in the Parisian working class suburbs. Entrusted to a joyful country woman, Célestine, and her husband, Borel, the rather stiff gamekeeper of a vast estate in Sologne, the city child, recalcitrant and stubborn, arrives in a mysterious and disturbing world, that of a soverign and wild region. The huge forest, misty ponds, heaths, and fields all belong to the Count de la Fresnaye, an elderly taciturn man who lives alone in his manor. The Count tolerates poachers on his estate, but Borel relentlessly hunts them down, most especially, Totoche, the most wily and elusive among them. In the heart of a fairytale Sologne, alongside Totoche, Paul will learn about life, and also about the forest and its secrets. An even heavier secret weighs down the estate, because Paul has not happened to come there by accident.

Dr. Nariman is facing a dilemma: is he responsible for the child's death due to the car accident or the child died of food poisoning according to other doctors' diagnosis? As the story unfolds, his fate becomes inextricably bound up with that of the grieving family.

The land they've chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. "The Biggest Little Farm" chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different crops, and bringing in animals of every kind- including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. When the farm's ecosystem finally begins to reawaken, so does the Cheste

The Valley
Ever since its transformation from an over-the-hill mining town to a world class ski resort, Telluride has been a diverse mix of ski bums, trust funders, back-to-the-land hippies, liberal second-home owners, urban dropouts and savvy business entrepreneurs.

So when a multinational corporation proposed an Aspen-style development of trophy homes on the 600 acre gateway to Telluride’s box canyon, the citizens of Telluride said NO.

Shedding light on the broken Afghan judicial system and the women it seldom protects, "A Thousand Girls Like Me" is the story of one woman’s battle against cultural, familial, and legal pressures as she embarks on a mission to set a positive example for her daughter and other girls like her.

Living Proof
Multiple Sclerosis societies around the world maintain that the cause and the cure of MS are still unknown. Yet pharmaceutical companies are showing record profits on sales of MS drugs, even though there is no conclusive evidence that they have an effect on the course of the disease. Filmmaker and activist Matt Embry was diagnosed with MS in 1995 and was told there was no cure. His father, Ashton, a research geologist, helped him develop simple dietary and exercise guidelines. He has since remained healthy. Now in his early forties and showing no signs of physically slowing down, he sets his sights on shaking up a system that has so far refused to listen. Treatments by top-tier scientists that have shown major improvement on patients’ mobility have systematically been shut down by big pharma and delays from the FDA since, as Embry argues, they don’t offer the prospect of a marketable product (read: a drug). Perhaps more surprising and shocking is the refusal of some charitable associat
