So B. It

For as long as Heidi can remember, her mentally challenged mother has had only 22 words in her vocabulary, and the precocious 12 year-old doesn't have a problem with that. Bernadette, their loving neighbor, provides them a bubble of love and protection. Then, a new word pops out of Mama's mouth - the mysterious soof - and it changes everything. Heidi is propelled on a solo cross-country journey of discovery and loss, truth and identity.

SO B. IT received a limited theatrical release and is distributed by Good Deed Entertainment.

“Sad, beautiful, and unique, this sympathetic coming-of-age tale based on Sarah Weeks' novel about a determined young girl with a mysterious past will resonate with adults, tweens, and teens.” - Joyce Slaton, Common Sense Media

In Utero

IN UTERO is a cinematic rumination on what will emerge as the most provocative subject of the 21st Century – life in the womb and its lasting impact on human development, human behavior, and the state of the world.

Scientists, psychologists, doctors, midwives and mothers discuss how cultural and environmental stressors affect women during pregnancy, directly influencing their children. IN UTERO brings together for the first time convincing data that explains why some of us face challenges from the start while others thrive, proving that we are much more than just our genes.

Grassroots

Political candidate Grant Cogswell has his own set of image problems, starting with the fact that he likes to dress up as a polar bear and he's currently an unemployable music critic. In Stephen Gyllenhaal's bittersweet, uplifting comedy GRASSROOTS - based on the true story of the 2001 Seattle City Council election - Cogswell becomes the mono-maniacal man of the people, rallying an unlikely posse of misfits, slackers and square pegs to his seemingly hopeless David-and-Goliath battle against firmly entrenched incumbent. GRASSROOTS received a limited theatrical release and is distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films.

“…a witty, well-cast, sometimes ingeniously paced political comedy…” - John Hartl, Seattle Times

Lychee Thieves

It’s lychee season and Arnie and Ethel have a magnificent lychee tree that everybody in the neighborhood is salivating over, but they’re determined to keep the fruit all to themselves. Their neighbor, Mrs. Chun, believes the branches hanging over her fence belong to her, but has a foreboding dream about the fate of the tree. Meanwhile, local fruit picker Keoki gets ready to pick the lychee “the island way.”

Lychee Thieves explores the humorous and sometimes contentious interactions among the culturally and ethically diverse people of Hawai'i, prompting longtime local critic Burl Burlingame to describe it as "the most accurate depiction of life in Hawai'i yet committed to film."
