There’s nothing more thrilling than seeing a story come to life, especially one that has the power to impact people, get them thinking or have them change the way they perceive the world. Our films combine beautiful aesthetics, memorable narratives and powerful societal impact campaigns. Every film we do starts a movement, and is a tool for expanding our understanding of the world around us.
Award-Winning Film Producer
Our award-winning feature documentary, LIST(e)N, is the first of a sequence of films with societal impact campaigns that we are out to produce. We see film as a catalyst for change, and have proved with Listen Courageously – our empathy-inducing virtual film tour and experience – that powerful visual storytelling is a gateway to people’s hearts.
It is no secret that we live in extremely polarizing times, with hot-button political issues weaving their way into the fabric of every aspect of our lives and culture. Amidst all the noise, we all want to make sure our voice is heard. But how often do we stop to listen? List(e)n (80 minutes) invites people with opposing viewpoints on some of our most divisive issues – guns, abortion and immigration — to listen to each other. The documentary features participants whose personal lives deeply intertwine with the topics, including one of the survivors of the Parkland, FL school shooting. As the exchanges unfold, and the participants take the time to get to know each other, moments of unexpected emotional connection and understanding arise. This powerful film is wise to the ways we sometimes hate that which we don't understand. It is also brave enough to ask: Can we at least try to understand those with whom we most disagree?
