  Glory at Sea trailer
  Trailer for the film Glory at Sea which will be playing at the 2008 New Orleans International Human Rights Festival.
  Driving to Zigzigland (Trailer)
  Shot in Jerusalem, Ramallah and Los Angeles, DRIVING TO ZIGZIGLAND is a chronicle of a day in the life of a Bashar, a Palestinian cab driver in Los Angeles. Bashar holds tight onto the American Dream of becoming an actor in Hollywood but also longs to go back home to his legitimate theatrical acting job in Palestine, despite the Israeli occupation. In Los Angeles, a film audition typecasts Bashar to play an Al Qaeda terrorist role. When Bashar gets home, he realizes the utilities payments are due and he has twenty-four hours to make the money. For the remaining hours left until tomorrow, an unceasing flow of passengers ride in Bashar's taxi and give the Arab cabbie the run-around on issues that deal with suicide bombers, George Bush, Cat Stevens, the war in Iraq, Rai music, and world geography. In a post-9/11 American day, Bashar falls into the interest of the F.B.I. and suffers a massive blow from the bureaucracy of the former INS, now Homeland Security. All the while, Bashar's nostalgia of the Al Kasaba Theater in Ramallah, his place of work before being confined to his green American cab, poses the question of whether or not the American Dream is an idea really worth fighting for. Bashar's quest to make the money is won until he realizes he must choose between the Department of Homeland Security and his own family. Based on true stories.

  Jena Six
  [2:17 min]In a small town in Louisiana, six families are fighting for their sons' lives. Two nooses are left as a warning to black students trying to integrate their playground, fights break out across town, a white man pulls a shotgun on black students, someone burns down most of the school, the DA puts six black students on trial for attempted murder, and the quiet town of Jena becomes the site of the largest civil rights demonstration in the South since the 1960s. The Jena 6 is the story of hidden racial inequality and violence becoming visible. It is a powerful symbol for, and example of, how racial justice works in America -- where the lynching noose has been replaced by the DA's pen
  Scenic Highway
  [17 min] Due to the recent unpleasantness, Baton Rouge has eclipsed New Orleans as the largest city in Louisiana. Is the city destined for greatness? Scenic Highway is the name of US Highway 61 as it passes through northern Baton Rouge. It is also this trip to the city -- and such landmarks as Huey Long's art deco State Capitol building and Buckminster Fuller's hidden geodesic dome. This darkly affectionate memoir is also an exposé of the city's colorful history -- told through the use of animated motion graphics, archival Super 8 footage, and re-created & faux-created elements.
