Stay: Migration and Poverty in Rural Mexico directed by Laura Elizabeth Pohl

The unauthorized immigrant population in the United States has tripled from 3.5 million people in 1990 to more than 11 million in 2010. Stepped-up patrols along the border with Mexico – the source of 60 percent of unauthorized immigrants – has had little impact. Why? This short film documents the lives of two men and their families. They migrated separately to the United States and Canada for work but are now able to stay in Mexico with the help of programs that invest in rural areas and reduce the pressure to migrate.

A Question of Integrity: Politics, Ethics and The Supreme Court directed by Devan Shea

Narrated by Edward James Olmos, A Question of Integrity examines ways in which recent behavior by some Supreme Court justices undermines the public’s faith in our nation’s most important legal institution. The documentary explores evidence that some justices have participated in overtly political and ethically questionable activity and explains that the justices of the Supreme Court are not formally bound by the Code of Conduct that guides the behavior of all other federal judges. It also discusses reforms that can help end these questions of integrity hanging over several justices and the Court itself.

The Domino Effect directed by Megan Sperry, Daniel Phelps

The Domino Effect explores the process of real estate development in New York City and digs deep to uncover the complex networks of banks, developers, politicians, and non-profit organizations that shape our cities. Recently, the communities of Williamsburg and Greenpoint in North Brooklyn have experienced the negative impacts of excessive luxury development and gentrification. The Community Preservation Corporation’s ‘New Domino’ project – the redevelopment of the Domino Sugar Factory on the East River into a complex of 2,200 apartments and condos – serves as the film’s case study.

3 Days of Normal directed by Ishai Setton

It’s fall in rural New Hampshire and Deputy Bill Morgan runs the flags up the pole in front of his small town police station. It’s a typical day for him and the last thing he expects to discover is Nikki Gold, Hollywood’s current It Girl, passed out drunk in her car. When the paparazzi hear the news, Bill and Nikki find themselves hiding out, as the town sees a level of excitement it isn’t exactly used to.
