When astronauts broke out of the earth’s atmosphere and were able to look back for the first time and take in the view of our world, the entire world, in one look, it marked a profound philosophical shift. Marrying breathtaking NASA cinematography from space with interviews with astronauts, environmentalists, and philosophoers, Planetary is a meditation on where we come from, who we think we are, and where we might be headed.

Heaven Adores You is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith (1969-2003). By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.
Through majestic cinematography, DamNation explores the history and controversy surrounding dam removal projects. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access.
"Directors Ben Knight and Travis Rummel have made a fleet movie with a convincing argument for systemic dam removal (some of which is caught thrillingly on film) and arresting nature-drenched cinematography." — Robert Abele, LA Times
