Earthrise 30 mins
Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts.

Three Pages 15 mins
An unassuming middle-aged accountant learns he has only weeks to live. Rather than tell everyone, Martin is determined to learn the three pages of a Bach adagio for piano he’d abandoned as a child. Subtitled.

Guaxama 14 mins
In Nara Normande's remarkable animation, ever-shifting grains of sand become the means to portray happier times on the beaches of the filmmaker's childhood and to pay tribute to a very special friendship. Subtitled.

Guns Found Here 11 mins
When there’s a gun crime in America, there’s only one place to go to trace the gun back to its owner: Martinsburg, West Virginia. That’s where the ATF’s National Tracing Center handles roughly 8,000 active traces per day — all while inside a government-mandated technology time-capsule that makes searching a database of gun owners impossible.

SEARED: The Journey of a Chef 8 mins
Beaten by a life of injustice and crime, a young man's plan to end it all turns into a life of renewed hope and a passionate career as a chef.
