POV: The Neutral Ground
The Neutral Ground documents New Orleans’ fight over monuments and America’s troubled romance with the Lost Cause. In 2015, director CJ Hunt was filming the New Orleans City Council’s vote to remove four confederate monuments. But when that removal is halted by death threats, CJ sets out to understand why a losing army from 1865 still holds so much power in America. Watch the trailer.

America ReFramed: The Falconer
One of only a handful of African American falconers in the country, Rodney Stotts is on a mission to build a bird sanctuary and provide access to nature for his stressed community. This is a story of second chances: for injured birds of prey, for an abandoned plot of land, for a group of teenagers who have dropped out of high school, and for Rodney himself. Watch the trailer.

400 Years: Taking The Knee
Writer and BBC radio presenter Dotun Adebayo narrates the many stories of black resistance to oppression.

Jim Crow of the North
The hour-long documentary Jim Crow of the North explores the origins of housing segregation, examining how racist real estate covenants set the stage for loan refusals, or redlining, in the U.S. The film also looks at the University of Minnesota's Mapping Prejudice Project, a research program that creates a visual representation of structural racism, informing current conversations around racial disparities.
