Shored Up SHORED UP focuses on the issue of climate change in the context of beach erosion along U.S. coastlines. When Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, it was a wake up call to a new reality. Shored Up takes us to the heart of this climate change controversy, following communities in New Jersey and North Carolina where politics, economics and science collide. Beginning 3 years before Sandy hit and following the debates over beach replenishment and other attempts to hold back the sea, Shored Up is a convincing call for action along our coasts. As the oceans rise and storms flood our towns and cities, we have a choice to make: do we continue to develop as we have in the past, ignoring clear risks and danger? Or, do we allow science to guide our policies for the future...before it's too late?
Gut Renovation GUT RENOVATION tells the inside story of the rezoning, demolition and repurposing of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Friedrich details the heart-rending loss of a thriving community of working class residents and artists, as well as the loss of many beautiful old industrial buildings that accommodated hundreds of small businesses, manufacturers, and artists’ studios, including the eccentric communal loft which was her home for twenty years. Along the way, Friedrich slyly skewers the city planners, ad men, developers, architects and the new tenants they attract with their offers of tax-free luxury living “with a bohemian twist.
In CHILDREN OF SRIKANDI, participants collectively worked as crew members or actresses in each other’s film, with individual stories ranging from observational documentary and concept art to personal essay. We see that change is possible on all levels of the film: personal, political, and formal. Transformation is always inscribed in the narrative; form and identity are fluid; perspectives are shifted.
image STILL AROUND is a feature length compilation of 15 short films about HIV/AIDS that weaves a diverse slate of stories into one powerful video AIDS quilt of our times. By connecting well-known San Francisco Bay area filmmakers with individuals who are living with HIV/AIDS, the voices of women, men, gay and straight, transgender, young and old, and from many ethnic backgrounds come together to paint an unmatched emotional portrait of how people thrive and survive in the face of long term illness.
