The Terrorist Hunter
This film follows controversial spy Rita Katz, lauded by some for her work fighting terrorism, criticized by others who say she creates terrorist plots where none exist. The film weaves Rita’s tale within the context of the multibillion dollar counterterrorism industry, exposing how fear and terror play out in our society.
Nellie Bly Makes the News
An animated documentary about Nellie Bly, a muckracking investigative journalist who changed the game for women in reporting before women even had the right to vote. Drawing from extensive primary sources including Bly’s own writing, and presenting both real-world interviewees and reenactments in several styles of animation and illustration, this short film investigates the porous line between reporting facts and telling stories, while creating a dynamic portrait of a woman who refused to accept the status quo.
This film follows three brave women who are speaking out against inequality and pushing for equal rights in their country. Each woman faces personal risk for her chosen path, but none waver in the face of adversity. Verite sequences and 2D animation help to tell the stories of these powerful women and the victims they have helped in their journey to challenge the status quo.
