Hair Story (2018) - 15mins
Everyone has a hair story. We change our hair after a break-up, for a job, before balding, or to prep for a big event. Very few TV series focus on hair! Hair Story follows residents of a Chicago co-op as they try to get along and as they narrate wild dreams and stories to Gia, the hair stylist of the house. Hearing their stories inspires her to break her hiatus and return to her first love, the art of drag and gender transformation!
Rafiki (2018) - 83 mins
“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives,” but Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain, close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety
Naz & Maalik (2014) - 86 mins
Over the course of one Friday afternoon in Brooklyn, two closeted Muslim teens have their secretive lives rattled by FBI surveillance. Intimate and meditative, NAZ AND MAALIK examines the mysterious forces that animate teenage minds.
