2013   Suitcase of Love and Shame. New York: Cinema Guild.
Subject: Tender, erotic, and pathetic, this reconstructed narrative examines the obsession to chronicle the details of an adulterous affair. Suitcase of Love and Shame is a mesmerizing collage woven from 60 hours of reel-to-reel audiotape discovered in a suitcase purchased on eBay. Recorded in the 1960's, a Mid-western woman and her lover become reliant on recording devises to document and memorialize their affair. The film suggestively foregrounds the tape recorder as the confidant, witness, and participant that the couple come to depend on -- always omnipresent, the recorder creates a welcomed meenage-aa-trois.

Backed by mentor Jonathan 'Rap' Rapping, a charismatic leader who heads the Southern Public Defender Training Center (now known as Gideon's Promise) they struggle against long hours, low pay and staggering caseloads so common that even the most committed often give up in their first year. Nearly 50 years since the landmark Supreme Court ruling Gideon vs. Wainwright that established the right to counsel, can these courageous lawyers revolutionize the way America thinks about indigent defense and make 'justice for all' a reality?

2013   Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World (iPad app). Princeton, New Jersey: Princetone University Press.
Subject: press release

; Mary Beard wrote of the app in The Times Literary Supplement, "Another noteworthy 'book' for the armchair classical traveller comes from Princeton University Press. I mean no disloyalty to the old print version when I celebrate the appearance of the marvellous Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World as an app. It brings the most authoritative ancient geography to the iPad..."; ...the app combines the complete content of the Barrington Atlas (100+ color maps of the ancient world) with digital Navigation, Search, and Favorites functions to allow users to experience and to explore the ancient world as never before. We are offering this app at $19.95 for iPad2+ which is an incredible savings off the cost of the physical book ($395.00) and is, obviously, much more portable than the book which weighs enough to topple a small coffee table.

Subject: This film tells the story of the real price of cocaine: coca farmers in Colombia, women drug mules in Ecuadorian prisons, cocaine factories in the Bolivian jungle, dealers on the streets of Mexico, law enforcement officials on the streets of Baltimore - and the everyday consumers in the West. It's a story of politics, death, economic devastation and human suffering, but it also explores realistic alternatives. Front line reportage, exclusive access to the political leaders of Latin America, and revealing interviews with drug czars - watch this and you will never think the same about cocaine and the war on drugs again.

Subject: Language of the Seeds: Every year, the market vendors of Tepoztlan create an amazing arch, made entirely of 85 different varieties of edible seeds, on the gateway to the parish church. Using the pictorial language of their Indian ancestors, each arch comments on the events of the year. These unique arches attract visitors from all over the world, and bring the people of Tepoztlan together as a community. 20 minutes; "A Defender of His People": The Nahua indigenous community of Tepoztlan, in the valley of Morelos just south of Mexico City, is one of the most famous towns in Mexico. Because it is set along the base of a spectacular volcanic ridge - and because it is close to the city - it has become a popular tourist destination, as well a site for weekend homes for wealthy Mexico City residents. Before the tourist influx, it was extensively studied by two famous American anthropologists, Robert Redfield and Oscar Lewis, and others continue their work. Most recently it has become the New Age capital of Mexico, and a popular stopover on the backpacker trail. Amazingly, in spite of all these pressures, Tepoztlan has managed to maintain its own special identity. 57 minutes

Subject: Hossein and Shaima, who have known and loved each other since childhood, were separated as teenagers by war in Afghanistan. Today, reunited in Kabul, they remain deeply in love, but their relationship is socially and religiously prohibited.; Hossein, young and jobless in the late Nineties, was paid to fight with the Taliban and a war injury left his legs paralyzed. He is now handicapped, and unable to work. Shaima was sold in marriage to a man forty years her senior, by whom she had a child, but, since the dowry remained unpaid, her father brought her back home to live with her five-year-old child.WAR AND LOVE IN KABUL, a deliberately paced, observational documentary, reveals their dilemma through interviews with Hossein and Shaima, and members of their respective families, each representing a different ethnic group, who object to the relationship because of their loyalty to ancient tribal laws and family notions of honor and pride. Indeed, the lovers live under the threat of violent revenge by male members of both families. ;

2008   Torturing Democracy. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: In a riveting and dramatic narrative, TORTURING DEMOCRACY tells the inside story of how the U.S. government adopted torture as official policy in the aftermath of 9/11. With exclusive interviews, explosive documents and rare archival footage, the documentary has been called the definitive broadcast account of a deeply troubling chapter in recent American history. ; Produced by Emmy and Dupont award-winning broadcast journalist Sherry Jones, the film relies on the record to connect the dots in an investigation of interrogations of prisoners in U.S. custody that became "at a minimum, cruel and inhuman treatment and, at worst, torture," in the words of the former general counsel of the United States Navy, Alberto Mora. Producer Jones carefully presents the evidence that leads straight to the top of the chain of command - and so lays to rest the "rotten apple" defense for abusive interrogations at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere. ;

Subject: Lumo is a feature-length documentary about a young Congolese woman on an uncertain path to recovery at a unique hospital for rape survivors. The agonies of war torn Africa are deeply etched in the bodies of women. In eastern Congo, vying militias, armies and bandits use rape as a weapon of terror. ; Recently engaged to a young man from her village, 20 year-old Lumo Sinai couldn't wait to have children and start a family. But when she crossed paths with marauding soldiers who brutally attacked her, she was left with a fistula - a condition that has rendered her incontinent and threatens her ability to give birth in the future. Rejected by her fiance and cast aside by her family, Lumo found her way to the one place that may save her: a hospital for rape survivors set on the border with Rwanda.; Buoyed by the love of the hospital staff, and a formidable team of wise women known to all as 'the Mamas,' Lumo and her friends keep the hope of one day resuming their former lives, thanks to an operation that can restore them fully to health. A feisty young woman with a red comb perpetually jutting from her hair, Lumo faces the challenge of recovery with remarkable courage and sass. As she and her friends recover from surgery, they pass the days by gossiping and sharing their dreams of one day finding love. But when it looks like her operation may have failed, Lumo's faith is thrown entirely into question.On this uncertain road to recovery, Lumo shows that the solidarity of women can bind the most irreparable of wounds.;

2008   Weather the Storm: The Fight to Stay Local in the Global Fishery. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: In today's global economy, the world's ocean resources are being hit hard. Enormous industrial "floating factories" follow the fish wherever they are abundant, and move on when they have plundered the fish stocks. In the process, they squeeze the life out of small and local fishing communities.; The fishing communities of the Bigouden, on France's rugged Western coast, are determined to fight back. From the Paris fish riots of 1991, to the newly formed World Forum for Fish Harvesters, these small town fishermen have launched a sophisticated and multi-faceted strategy to stay small and successful in the face of global competition.; Filmed in ports from Western Canada to France, from Scotland to Senegal, Weather The Storm introduces viewers to the logic underlying both industrial and artisanal fishing economies. It provides compelling evidence for the environmental and socio-economic benefits of staying small and local. Although the battle to save the oceans is often publicly waged between environmentalists and corporations, this film gives voice to an important group who just may have the solutions we need: the small-scale artisanal fishers.;

2008   The Betrayal (Nerakhoon). : The Cinema Guild.
Subject: The gifted cinematographer Ellen Kuras spent decades tracking the Phrasavaths, a large Laotian family that fled the devastated country after the secret U.S. war, after the father was imprisoned for advising Americans on where to drop thousands of bombs. The Betrayal moves among time periods and countries, from the Laotian countryside to the alien dangerous tenements of Brooklyn. The damage to the family seems too deep to heal, yet the film is lyrical, expansive, unbearably beautiful, with a melting violin score by Howard Shore. The bitterness has an epic scaleóbottomless, borderless, universal. ó David Edelstein;

2007   Damages. New York: Icarus Films.
Subject: In the United States, when someone dies as a result of the negligence or liability of another person-medical malpractice, a highway accident, murder-a wrongful death lawsuit, seeking monetary damages for the loss of financial or emotional support, may be filed by surviving family members. Over $100 billion in such personal injury compensation, or "damages," is paid each year.; DAMAGES goes inside the offices of Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder, one of the biggest American law firms specializing in such lawsuits. The film observes the lawyers as they meet with the families of victims, examine documents, gauge the strengths and weaknesses of each case, try to put a value on a life ended prematurely, and decide on a legal strategy.; The film follows several different cases and the procedures involved in preparing to file suit, including visiting a crime scene, filming an interview with a client for showing in court, trying the case before a mock jury, and discussing with clients offers made by insurance companies and their options to either settle out of court or go to trial.;

2007   Build Green. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: In a refreshing hour, Build Green shows how by taking advantage of the sun, the wind, and the rain, as well as dirt, straw and waste, homeowners and developers can reduce their personal contribution to climate change by building structures that are healthier for the occupants, economical to run, and even fun to live in.; David Suzuki sets out across Canada to discover the latest in green construction. On British Columbia's Salt Spring Island, Suzuki visits the rammed earth house of rock star Randy Bachman. Rammed earth is a traditional building technique that, with modern advances, has become viable and popular in many different climate regions. The technique minimizes site disturbance, the importation of construction materials and and the use of toxic substances. ; In Build Green, Canada's best architects show us round their latest green projects. From retrofitting an aging Montreal housing complex with state-of-the-art sustainable energy systems, to laying up hay for strawbale houses, to building transportable "mini-homes" with their own small power plant, Build Green takes a close look at the materials and technologies we'd be foolish not to adopt as standard practice in construction.;

From wheatboard cabinetry to recycled steel, bamboo flooring to dual-flush toilets, the Macallen building is some-thing different: a leader in the emerging field of environmentally friendly design.; But Boston's steel-toed union workers aren't sure they like it. And when things on the building start to go wrong, the young developer has to keep the project from unraveling.; Building Boston's first LEED Gold-certified building turns out to be harder than anyone thought.

2008   The Return of the Cuyahoga. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: The Return of the Cuyahoga is a one-hour documentary about the death and rebirth of one of America's most emblematic waterways. In its history we see the end of the American frontier, the growth of industry, the scourge of pollution and the advent of a political movement that sought to end pollution.; For centuries, the Cuyahoga River has been on the frontier. When the United States was a new nation, the river literally marked the western frontier. But "civilization" came to the river; by 1870 the river was on the industrial frontier. On the river's banks sprouted a multitude of factories, a booming display of what was called progress. The river, as it flowed through Cleveland, became a foul-smelling channel of sludge, with an oily surface that ignited with such regularity that river fires were treated as commonplace events by the local press. But then, in 1969, the river burned again, just as a third kind of frontier swept across the nation: an environmental frontier. And the Cuyahoga River became a landmark on this frontier too -- a poster child for those trying to undo the destruction wrought by progress in America.;

2008   Operation Filmmaker. Brooklyn, New York: Icarus Films.
Subject: In 2004, American actor Liev Schreiber saw an MTV segment on Iraqi film student Muthana Mohmed, whose dreams of becoming a filmmaker had been thwarted by the bombing of his university during "Operation Iraqi Freedom." Schreiber, then preparing to film his directorial debut, Everything is Illuminated, in Prague, invited Muthana to work as a production assistant on the film.; Nina Davenport was hired to document Muthana's experience as an intern on the Hollywood movie. But Schreiber's well-intentioned gesture doesn't result in the inspiring story everyone had hoped for, as differing expectations and agendas clash. In particular, Muthana begrudgingly performs or shirks responsibility for the tasks assigned to him, repeatedly squandering a golden opportunity.; For OPERATION FILMMAKER, Davenport chronicled Muthana's story over a two-year period, from his work in Prague as a P.A. on Schreiber's Holocaust drama and later on Doom, a sci-fi film starring "The Rock," to a stint at a London film school, periodically contrasting his experiences abroad with scenes of Muthana's family and friends in wartorn Baghdad.; While documenting Muthana's relationships with the producers, crews and stars of both films-characterized by a psychologically fascinating stew of good intentions, bad faith, liberal guilt, and opportunism. Davenport herself eventually becomes embroiled in the young man's perennial financial difficulties and visa problems. In its continuing but futile search for a "happy ending," OPERATION FILMMAKER exposes the often mutually manipulative relationships between filmmakers and their subjects.;

2007   Agent Orange: A Personal Requiem. Brooklyn, New York: Icarus Films.
Subject: As a young man in the late Sixties, Greg Davis served for three years in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. The area where he was stationed was one of many throughout the country sprayed by the military, as part of its counterinsurgency strategy, with millions of gallons of defoliants, including Agent Orange, which contains dioxin, the most toxic chemical known to man.After his military service, Davis married and worked for decades as a photojournalist for Time and other publications worldwide. In 2003, at the age of 54, he died from liver cancer, believed to be the result of his exposure to Agent Orange. Produced by Davis's widow, AGENT ORANGE chronicles the history of this lethally toxic herbicide, tracing its effects not only on her husband and other U.S. servicemen but also on the environment and continuing generations of Vietnamese.More than three decades after the spraying of Agent Orange was discontinued, dioxin still contaminates the Vietnamese environment and its traces can now be found in the body of everyone living in the country. AGENT ORANGE concludes by discussing a 2005 lawsuit on behalf of Vietnamese victims, naming Dow Chemical and Monsanto among 37 other firms, brought before a Federal Court in New York City.

2007   Wolves in Paradise: Ranchers and Wolves in the New West. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: Set in the soaring mountains and majestic valleys of southwest Montana, Wolves in Paradise is a tale of survival as ranchers face the challenge of living with wolves in the decade after the top predator was reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park.The documentary follows the growing wolf packs as they leave the sanctuary of the park and make their first incursions into Paradise Valley. "How can we have the rancher and the wolf together? That's the part we need to get figured out, all right. That's the tough one," says Paradise Valley rancher Martin Davis. Davis copes with the frustration of running livestock in wolf country, while fending off another threat to his way of life: encroaching development. His traditional, family outfit is contrasted with the vast Sun Ranch in nearby Madison Valley, operated as a conservation experiment that tries to accommodate both wolves and cattle with unexpected, dramatic results.Meanwhile, as the action plays out in the remote reaches of Greater Yellowstone, a surprising alliance grows between traditional enemies -- livestock growers and conservationists -- who find common ground in the need to protect open space from developers in this last, wild corner of the West.;

2005   Fighting Fire with Fire. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: Monster forest fires, big enough to be seen from space and hot enough to create their own weather, used to be a once-in-a-decade nightmare. But now, they're an everyday summer reality across vast stretches of North America. Authorities in Canada and the United States are bracing for increasing infernos each fire season. A timely documentary, Fighting Fire with Fire takes audiences onto the fire line and brings them face-to-face with raging fires that are literally unstoppable. This provocative film raises questions about conventional methods of fighting fire, and whether decades of suppressing fire have simply made matters worse. The long-standing lesson taught by Smokey the Bear goes out the window as a new controversial approach to fighting fire is examined.Fighting Fire with Fire ventures into the forests of Banff National Park, where the park wardens are deliberately setting fires known as "prescribed burns." They are taking accepted practice (if it's on fire, put it out), and doing the exact opposite. One goal is to try and prevent bigger, hotter, faster fires; another is to regenerate the land, creating conditions for flora and fauna to thrive.As viewers discover in Fighting Fire with Fire, this little-known phenomenon is working. Experts explain that fire has always been part of our landscape, but forces like global warming and "hit it hard, hit it fast" fire management policies have conspired to create infernal blazes.

2007   Arid Lands. Oley, Pennsylvania: Bullfrog Films.
Subject: Arid Lands is a documentary feature about the land and people of the Columbia Basin in southeastern Washington state. Sixty years ago, the Hanford nuclear site produced plutonium for the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, and today the area is the focus of the largest environmental cleanup in history. It is a landscape of incredible contradictions: coyotes roam among decommissioned nuclear reactors, salmon spawn in the middle of golf courses, wine grapes grow in the sagebrush, and federal cleanup dollars spur rapid urban expansion.; Arid Lands takes us into a world of sports fishermen, tattoo artists, housing developers, ecologists, and radiation scientists living and working in the area. It tells the story of how people changed the landscape over time, and how the landscape affected their lives. Marked by conflicting perceptions of wilderness and nature, Arid Lands is a moving and complex essay on a unique landscape of the American West.;

2006   John James Audubon: Drawn from Nature. Watertown, MA: Documentary Educational Resources.
Subject: The story of John James Audubon is a dramatic and surprising one. He saw more of the North American continent than virtually anyone of his time, and came to stand for America - the America of wilderness and wild things. Audubon was a self-taught artist and a self-made man whose life was rife with action and contradiction. He played the debonair European when he visited the American frontier, and then the wild woodsman in the drawing rooms of Europe. ; As an artist and a naturalist his achievements are monumental. The Birds of America - an astonishing collection of 435 life-size prints - was the largest book printed in the 19th century. Audubon was not only the artist; he was the writer, publisher and promoter. His early subscribers included the kings of England and France.; Audubon continued to draw, creating a smaller folio of even more birds, and embarking on a major study of mammals. This book, The Viviparous Quadrupeds of America, was only half-done in 1846, when he turned the work over to his son. His eyesight was failing, as was his mind.;
