Real stories.

People-powered.

We've combined our backgrounds in filmmaking and grassroots organizing to launch a multidisciplinary production company dedicated to sparking civic engagement through

documentary storytelling.

We partner with activists and organizations to create thoughtful and innovative films that advocate for change and channel direct engagement.

Original Films

Our stories take us to critical places –

from where decisions are made to where they are fought.

We've filmed at the U.S.–Mexico border with faith leaders, inside the New York State Assembly with refugee activists, and on the frontlines of protests.

SANCTUARY HIGHLIGHT

Our original documentaries break down complex issues into human form.
