As I Am

Chris Dean’s heart stopped when he was two. He died but he came back. When Chris was five, his father was murdered, riddled by more than 20 bullets in a gang shootout. At age 18, Chris gained national attention when he introduced President Barack Obama at his high school graduation. Chris is an observer and philosopher who has always had a few things to say about life from his vantage point in South Memphis.

Why We Hike

A short documentary that showcases a volunteer guide at Quetzaltrekkers, a hiking/trekking organization in Quetzaltenango (Xela), Guatemala, that gives all of its profits to Escuela de la Calle and El Hogar, a school and a home built to aid street kids in Guatemala.

DRUG CRAZEDWhen a man in Miami chewed off a homeless man’s face in 2012 a little-known drug was blamed. This report investigates how ‘bath salts’ are wreaking havoc across the USA as the number of addicts grows.

ACT OF TERROR – ANIMATED DOCUMENTARYWhile filming a routine stop and search of her boyfriend on the London Underground, Gemma suddenly found herself detained, handcuffed and threatened with arrest. Act of Terror tells the story of her fight to bring the police to justice and prevent this happening to anyone else, ever again.

ALIENS OF THE DEEP – JAMES CAMERON DOCUMENTARYJames Cameron teams up with NASA scientists to explore the Mid-Ocean Ridge, a submerged chain of mountains that band the Earth and are home to some of the planet’s most unique life forms.

BABY DRAIN – JAPAN FACING AN UNPRECEDENTED POPULATION COLLAPSE?In bustling Tokyo, there’s little sense of an impending crisis, but Japan is facing a demographic time bomb. “Nobody is having babies. The men aren’t as hungry for success or for relationships as they were before”, says Kaoru Arai. She epitomises the country’s new breed of successful and financially independent women that are putting their career first. “I’m picky, yes. I want it all”, she smiles. In a desperate move to pull the birth rate back from the brink, the government is offering cash incentives to encourage singles to partner up and procreate. Meanwhile, the elderly are being left behind, with no one to look after them.

MEXICAN VIGILANTES STAND UP AGAINST CRIMEThe state of Guerrero (which means “warrior”) is one of the poorest in Mexico and the site of some of the worst violence in the battle between the drug cartels and Mexican authorities. As a result of the violence, hundreds of civilians have armed themselves with machetes, rifles, and shotguns, put masks on, and decided to police their own communities, effectively taking justice into their own hands.

Casinos vs. Cheaters: Who is the Winner in the Casino Wars?
It’s only a game of chance but gamblers around the globe bet with their bank accounts and even their lives on it. Players hold their breath in every spin of the wheel and in every roll of the dice. But for some, playing in the casino is not for fun and games, it’s just pure business. Casinos use high-tech cameras and surveillance systems which they place everywhere to catch cheaters and game riggers.  With billions of dollars at stake, casinos wage a war against casino cheaters 24/7.

Rampant INjustice
This documentary is detailing the unconstitutional, para-military, gestapo style raids occurring in America by the Justice Department and the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service. These raids involve not only the business owners under investigation for a white collar offense, but all of the employees who work for them but are not accused of any crime or under any type of investigation.

Light Darkness and Colors
Using Goethe’s Theory of Colors (Zur Farbenlehre) as point of departure, Light Darkness and Colors takes us on a fascinating journey through the universe of colors.
