Made over 30 years, but all too timely, this immersive film covers the recent history of protest and activism in America. Told from the perspective of an observer rather than as a journalist or activist. From rallies celebrating the Confederate Flag to the Occupy Wall Street movement to Trump rallies, the weird, wide world is all there.


Short Before the Feature: Unfiltered // Jocabed Aragón :: Unfiltered is a collection of recent event footage alongside Martin Luther King’s speech, The Three Evils of Society, reflecting on American society.


Suki Hawley and Michael began working together in 1994 with the doc hybrid “Half-Cocked”. In 2000 they were joined by David Beilinson as they made the politics documentary “Horns and Halos” which was short-listed for the Oscar. Working in a collaborative manner they completed “Code 33”, “Battle for Brooklyn”, “Who Took Johnny”, “All The Rage” and dozens of shorts films.
