Deconstructing Black Males in Dance
This documentary is about black masculinity in dance and explores the stereotype of black males dancers and their masculinity. Society has created this image that black males have to be hard, dominant, and aggressive. This documentary explores the stereotypes that impact black male dancers and glorifies the ones who are breaking or have broken these stereotypes.

Art Against Abuse
Every year, an astounding number of women and girls are abused domestically and sexually. Because of their traumatic experiences, these survivors are at risk of shutting themselves out of the world and from their family and friends, unwilling to express themselves or tell others how they feel because something dear and precious was violated. Art therapy, a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art, can help these survivors find their voices by improving their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. This documentary explores what art therapy is and how it can help heal victims of gender-based violence.

Mainstream Media, I'm Looking at You
This documentary explores the negative "isms" of the mainstream media and how it impacts the community and one's identity.  People need to know that they are their own person. Television and negative images shouldn't affect their lives dramatically.
