"DEEP RUN poetically examines one trans man's search for love, faith, and acceptance in rural North Carolina...  the film glows with a lyrical intimacy..."
- The Advocate

Executive produced by Susan Sarandon, DEEP RUN is a powerful verite portrait of translife in rural North Carolina. Exiled by her family and rejected by an ex-partner, 17 year-old Spazz has no one to lean on for support. But when Spazz falls in love again and summons up the courage to become Cole, a strong-willed trans-man, his candid humor and steadfast, all-inclusive Christian beliefs counter the bigotry he experiences daily. This deeply personal documentary reveals rebirth and courage within America's deeply conservative Bible Belt as Cole struggles to find a church that will affirm his identity and the couple's relationship. With a small group of supportive friends, relatives, and  his girlfriend Ashley, Cole's search for love and belonging leads him to a radical revision of what faith and church can be. An intimate study of young outsiders in an insular Christian community, DEEP RUN explores the intersection of modern identity and faith in the American South.

MY ATOMIC AUNT
Now Available for 25% off Full Educational Price!
"An insightful and surprisingly funny story of a family adjusting to life after the tsunami...
this deeply personal film explores notions of homeland, nuclear power and family love."
-BBC Storyville 
  

Namie, a fishing village ravaged by the 2011 Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, was a childhood paradise to filmmaker Kyoko Miyake. Visiting her family's hometown after 10 years abroad, Miyake examines the disaster's profound personal, social and environmental impact.  While Namie's younger generations have relocated, Miyake's aunt Kuniko, like other older residents, still dreams of returning home. Aunt Kuniko, dressed in radiation-proof clothing, returns regularly to water the plants in her garden. A timely and insightful film, with moments of humor and even joy, Surviving the Tsunami - My Atomic Aunt offers fresh perspectives about our relationship with nuclear energy.
