Refugee Is Not My Name

Trapped in limbo and living in displacement along the Greek isles, “Refugee Is Not My Name” documents the stories of the men, women and children grappling with pasts’ consumed by violence, pain and loss.

The Choice

“The Choice” is a powerful, thought-provoking short film that looks at abortion, a procedure that one in four women will have at least once over a lifetime. In this dramatic work of fiction, women speak collectively about their circumstances, their abortions, and the aftermath. The surprising array of emotions—ranging from regret to liberation—makes possible a new conversation about a procedure now mired in politics, shame and stigma. Watch “The Choice,” and you’ll never think about abortion the same way again.
Directed by Desiree Cooper and Oren Goldenberg (USA)

Seize the Day

Seize the day every day, from dawn until dusk…

Let’s enjoy the present, seize opportunities, engage with life fully and take action to make the world a better place. The film is about light and freedom, about passing time and our daily lives. It is about the duality of things, which can be both pleasant and threatening.
