After the Fire
Derek Knowles, Spencer Seibert | 2019 | 18 min
The residents of Sonoma Valley struggle to find their places in a community that has been reshaped overnight by the historic Northern California wildfires. After the Fire is an intimate look at what they've lost, what they've gained, and what happens next - after the fire.

Mossville: When Great Trees Fall
Alex Glustrom, Daniel Bennett, Katie Mathews, Catherine Rierson | 2019 | 75 min
Mossville, Louisiana is a shadow of its former self – a community rich in natural resources and history, founded by formerly enslaved people and free people of color – where neighbors lived in harmony, insulated from the horrors of Jim Crow. Today, Mossville is surrounded by 14 petrochemical plants, and is the future site of apartheid-born South African-based chemical company Sasol’s newest plant. The community struggles to let go of their ancestral home - and at the center of it all is a man named Stacey Ryan who refuses to give up.
