Racism on Main Street: A Look Around Your Corner
The Opening Series 1986
Whose America is it, anyway? This program starts off with a blunt question addressed by a black reporter in Somerville, MA., to a white police officer in town, "Do you think racism exists in Somerville?" From there the video tape shows a striking demonstration of police brutality in cases from "Lynch: Who Killed Michael Stewart?" to "The Day the Klan Marched." Made long before the Rodney King video, this program is a hard look at police brutality. Produced by Shu Lea Cheang and Roy Wilson (NY, NY)

American Nightmare: Black Labor and Liberation is a documentary series exploring the roots of anti-black racism in the United States. How can Black communities defend themselves against the deeply ingrained structures of racism? How can they build collective resistance and unite with people of all ethnicities to root out racism, white supremacy and dismantle the structures that seem to make it so necessary?
WHERE SHOULD THE BIRDS FLY
Where Should The Birds Fly is the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave. It is the story of two young women, Mona Samouni and Fida Qishta, survivors of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead, who show strength, humor, and hope despite the destruction surrounding them.
