Abacus - small enough to jail directed by Steve James, was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Feature Documentary this year! After its extensive theatrical run the film is now available on iTunes and and Amazon.

Another recent project is TRAFFIC STOP by Kate Davis and David Heibroner. This film has been nominted for an Academy Award® for Best Short Documentary. Watch the film here on HBO.go.

THE KING by Eugene Jarecki had its US premiere earlier this year at SUNDANCE. An early version of the film screened at the Cannes Film Festival last year. Shot in Cinemascope, the film juxtaposes contemporary American socio-political history with the biography of Elvis Presley.

Life, Animated by director Roger Ross Williams is now availabe on iTunes.

We are still working on The Punch (AT) on Chicago's South Side. The film tells the story of a fateful relationship of a father and his son and their shared fragile dream. It is a tale of failure and hope – and what it means to live with dignity. Filming will continue until the end of this year.

In 2009 our short-documentary Father's Prayer gave the initial starting point for this long term documentary.
