Dedicated to telling stories, and creating complex, human portraits, of lives and communities that have been largely unseen.
Women in Blue
WOMEN IN BLUE looks at policing from a virtually unseen angle, that of women officers working to reform the Minneapolis Police Department in the years elading up to the murder of George Floyd. It offers an unprecedented view into the inner workings of the MPD, chronicling a department—and a community—grappling with racism and a troubled history of police misconduct long before an MPD officer killed George Floyd in May of 2020. The film reveals the limitations of police reform through incremental change and asks questions that apply well beyond the city of Minneapolis. Could increased gender equity and more women —especially Black women— contribute to greater public safety?
Care pulls back the curtain on the poignant and largely hidden world of in-home care. It reveals the value of this critical work and the deep bonds that form between paid care workers and their clients. It also exposes America’s broken care system which serves neither workers who make poverty wages nor clients and their families who can’t afford the care they need.
Flying in the face of this culture’s extreme ageism, Still Doing It, explores the lives of women in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Partnered, single gay and straight, nine extraordinary women express with startling honesty and humor how they feel about themselves, sex and love in later life and the poignant realities of aging.
