Conspiracy Rising
2011 history
The number of popular conspiracy theories and the speed at which they spread is growing. Over a third of Americans believe their government did not tell them the truth about 9/11. A third of Britons believes that Princess Diana did not die an accidental death. Cyberspace is bursting with sites dedicated to theories about JFK, UFOs, or Area 51. Looking at these events and others, this film reveals how our societys mistrust for government has created a culture of doubt. It examines the ways that fearful people find comfort in the order and explanations that conspiracy theories provide. But it also discusses how conspiracy theories frequently discourage honest discourse, and, historically, have led to disaster. Conspiracy Rising takes a hard, penetrating look at the psycho-social and philosophical roots of conspiracy theories, examining who tends to believe in them and why.

The End
2004 Documentary
One of the most powerfully intimate films ever made about the final stages of life, The End began as a bold experiment. In November 2001, director Kirby Dick invited terminal patients and their families in a hospice program to take home cameras and record their last experiences on earth. Surprisingly, many patients and families embraced the concept. The resulting film is a profound and moving chronicle of five hospice patients whose stories are in turns honest, humorous, and heartbreaking. Examining such profound issues as the meaning of suffering, the desire for love and forgiveness, and the horror of death, the film is an intensely personal meditation on the experience of death, both for the dying and for those who must go on living.

Inside Hana's Suitcase
2011 Documentary, History
The poignant story of two young children who grew up in pre-WWII Czechoslovakia and the terrible events that they endured for being Jewish. Based on the internationally acclaimed book "Hana's Suitcase" which has been translated into 40 languages, the film is an effective blend of documentary and dramatic techniques. In addition to tracing the lives of George and Hana Brady in the 1930's and 40's, "Inside Hana's Suitcase" tells the present-day story of "The Small Wings", a group of Japanese children, and how their passionate and tenacious teacher, Fumiko Ishioka, helped them solve the mystery of Hana Brady, whose name was painted on an old battered suitcase that they received from Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi death camp built in Poland. The film's plot unfolds as told through contemporary young storytellers who act as the omniscient narrators. They seamlessly transport us through 70 years of history and back and forth across three continents, and relate to us a story of unspeakable sadness and also of shining hope.
