Finding Home (2014):

find home film documentary 2014

Finding Home is a unique documentary about trafficking, as the stories go far beyond the actual trafficking experiences. Finding Home shows in depth the struggle, growth, and challenges that come with trying to pick a life back up after it has been fragmented. Each of these three young women has a unique story with unique hurdles to overcome. The difficulties and complexities of learning how to deal with life after horrific abuse by slave owners and men looking to exploit sex with underage girls are unpacked in a way that communicates cross-culturally and proves the connectivity in the human spirit.

Finding Home reminds us that we are all connected in our humanity; that we are all looking for a place of love, acceptance and community…a place called home.

(This is the final showing of the 2018 Cinema Academica season).

Saturday Jan 12th 2019 is the expected continuation of the Cinema Academica season in 2019.

The Pruitt-Igoe Myth (2011):

Pruitt-Igoe_Myth,_documentary_poster

Destroyed in a dramatic and highly-publicized implosion, the Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex has become a widespread symbol of failure amongst architects, politicians and policy makers. The Pruitt-Igoe Myth explores the social, economic and legislative issues that led to the decline of conventional public housing in America, and the city centers in which they resided, while tracing the personal and poignant narratives of several of the project’s residents. In the post-War years, the American city changed in ways that made it unrecognizable from a generation earlier, privileging some and leaving others in its wake. The next time the city changes, remember Pruitt-Igoe.

Sat Nov 10th – Why We Fight

Why we fight

why we fight documentary film 043396138940
Why we fight is an unflinching anatomy of American war-making. The film launches a nonpartisan inquiry into the forces— political, economic, and ideological—that drive America to fight. Inspired by President Dwight Eisenhower’s 1961 Farewell address, filmmaker Eugene Jarecki weaves unforgettable stories of everyday Americans touched by war with commentary by a “who’s who” of military and Washington insiders.
