  • Residen Alien

    Residen Alien (2015)
    Documentary by Naiara Eizaguirre-Paulos (Documentary) Director, Cinematographer and Editor Carlos was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, reportedly a city with the world's highest homicide rate outside a war zone. At the age of 15, Carlos saw his best friend shot dead in front of him. As a witness, he would have to join the gang responsible or be murdered. Carlos chose an alternative yet almost equally dangerous path. He was one of 60,000 unaccompanied children to cross the U.S. border from Central America in 2014, fleeing drug cartels that used children as foot soldiers. Along their treacherous route they ride atop of La Bestia, the infamous freight train to the border. 52,000 were caught trying to cross the U.S border. Not Carlos.

  • Hello Oriental

    Hello Oriental (2014 - 2015)
    Documentary by Maysoon Films (Documentary) Assistant Camera, Editor and Sound Recorder Hello Oriental is a short documentary that explores the daily interaction of a Syrian bazaar in Downtown Brooklyn. Tree Syrian brothers run this unique story, although the film centers on Gary. Oriental Pastry&Grocery has been ficture on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn Heights for the las 40 years, but the neighborhood once know as Little Syria has vastly changed and a lot of the old wasy are getting lost. Step into this little gem for the most authentic experience of Middle Eastern food, enchantment and hospitality. The machine-gun queries artfully posited by the documentarian take the subject to task, and connote a prickly investigative acumen that is both endearing and integral. Indeed, a fascinating part of the documentary is the relationship between Gary and the filmmaker.

  • Act 718

    Act 718 (2014 - 2015)
    Documentary by Sean Regan (Documentary) Assistant Camera, Editor and Sound Recorder Act 718 follows the Brooklyn Act team, a mobile mental health unit that treats patients where they live- at home, in shelters or on the street. With access to the team's daily work on the ground, the film follows its diverse members- psychiatrists, social workers, peer counselors- as they serve individuals living with a community treatment model first developed in the early 1970's by physicians in Madison, Wisconsin.

  • Kayfabe

    Kayfabe (2014 - 2015)
    Documentary by Erich Hehn (Documentary) Assistant Camera and Sound Recorder Keyfabe is a term tht refers to the integrity of believability in professional wrestling, a kind of necessary suspension of disbelief. Formerly rejected by mainstream sports media, pro wrestling has now begun to experience new and ironic signs of life in an increasingly post-modern world. Following the thoughts of indie pro wrestlers Cassanova Valentine and Rick Cataldo, Kayfabe is an immerse portrait of the New York City indie wrestling scene.
