Finished in May 2010, Bag It is currently screening on National Public Television as well as being hosted by grassroots community organizers across the country and around the world.
Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.www.bagitmovie.com
Currently being distributed by New Day Films (Education), First Run Features (Domestic), and Journeyman Pictures (International) and airing on Pivot TV, Uranium Drive-In offers a springboard for national debate about rural poverty, economic development issues, environmental concerns and nuclear energy.

Currently in production, this feature length documentary chronicles story of two women, PIKILINA, a Haitian sex worker, and BELKIS, a Dominican prostitute-turned-activist, as they strive to build better lives for their families. Through their stories, we discover the racial tension and violent demonstrations that have erupted recently as two nations, the Dominican Republic and Haiti, attempt to share the island of Hispaniola.
