we produce documentaries & photo stories.

Our goal is to offer stories of hope, cultural appreciation, and alternative perspectives–especially where conflict, mistrust, or misconceptions exist. Amid peoples’ many wonderful differences, we seek to elevate common humanity as a viable means to living in harmony. Through human stories we discover pieces of ourselves in others. We relate their actions and choices to our own experiences and find meaning in our own life.
