THE NIKE CHARIOT EARRINGTHE NIKE CHARIOT EARRING (short)
dir. Karen Audette
A half-century ago a priceless treasure was stolen from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This is the remarkable story of its recovery and the woman who found it. Watch the Trailer


THE PAMOJA PROJECTTHE PAMOJA PROJECT (short)
dir. Audrey Emerson
The Pamoja Project is not another short documentary film about Africa. This film aims to combat stereotypical and one dimensional narratives of Africa by featuring the lives and work of Margaret, Astridah, and Crispina; three Tanzanian women who’s leadership and compassion is changing the lives of those in their community. By focusing on the solutions, rather then the challenges, the film offers a look at real development and social change in Tanzania. In Swahili, the word pamoja means “together,” reminding us that change is not one person, but a group of people united in love, working together. Watch the Trailer
