“If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”

Our projects include both commissioned work as well as our own independent, often self-financed, productions. We divide our work into three main categories: Documentary, Multimedia and Fiction.

We cover in depth human stories and focus on issues that receive little or no attention within mainstream media.

Our aim is to produce revealing, uncensored documentary films that present human life in its raw state.

We do not shy away from human suffering, neither do we seek it – rather we believe our purpose is to channel voices of those who have been silenced by injustice in its many forms through visual storytelling.

Yes we have our opinions – we are happy to share them – but in our work we try to set these aside and focus on the lives of the individuals we meet, to capture their voices in a way that honours them as individuals.
