It's a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves. The story is brought to life with priceless archival treasures and poignant, often funny interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success.

But in recent years the way we select Supreme Court justices has become dangerously politicized, threatening judicial impartiality. ADVISE & DISSENT is the first documentary to go behind the lines and into the trenches of the judicial confirmation wars. The film tracks two opposing lobbyists and two lions of the Senate through several recent nominations, each of which inflames passions and provokes surprising conflicts and shifting alliances. Both timely and timeless, the film lays bare the collision of politics and justice that is re-shaping America's future. Winner of the Founders Award at the Politics On Film Festival. "Brilliant ... Every American should see this film." - Howard Fineman, Newsweek Chief Political Correspondent Show less

On January 21, 2017, hundreds of thousands of women marched on Washington, D.C. That same day, hundreds of sister marches took place nationally and globally to become the largest one-day protest in American history. Filmed on location in Boston, San Francisco, Oakland, Santa Rosa, and Washington, D.C., the film explores several women's motivations to march. For some, it was their first time. For others, it was a continuation of a decades-long fight for human rights, dignity, and justice. For all, it was an opportunity to make their voices heard to express to the incoming administration that women's rights are human rights. Official Selection at the San Francisco Green Film Festival and the United Nations Association Film Festival. "WOMEN'S MARCH does not disappoint. Even though the subject is big, the extraordinary feeling of humanity that carried our hearts through the streets that day weaves gracefully through the film." - Sonoma County Gazette Show less
