New bonds form when a West Oakland youth baseball team travels to Cuba in this exploration of class, mentorship and the love and hope in a great international pastime. The boys in Ghost Townnickname for economically impoverished and violence-plagued West Oaklandare haunted by the memory of murdered residents and a dwindling sense of community, including a paucity of male role models. Roscoe, a baseball coach, steps in with his mission to give these disadvantaged kids a chance to learn teamwork and disciplinethough it’s no easy task. But then Bay Area filmmaker Eugene Corr (himself the son of an East Bay baseball coach) brokers a meeting between Roscoe and Nicolasa coach in the slums of Cuba with a similar goal. What happens when the two teams meet? Nothing short of a cultural exchange that changes both men and the boys forever.

Matt Shepard Is A Friend Of Mine  is a film about the Matthew Shepard behind the headlines. An honest and intimate portrait of Matt as he is remembered by those who knew him, it is the story of loss, love, and grief that does not go away. As such, the film will provide a proxy for a wide variety of people and communities to experience first hand the devastation of intolerance, the power of love, and the beauty of compassion.

Young Wickie is a Viking who’d rather use his head to get out of a fix than just conk an opponent with it , his father’s preferred method. When dad, the Viking chief, goes missing, leadership falls on Wickie. His wits can overcome a storm at sea, capture by the Valkyries and an enemy castle’s fortifications, but he can’t puzzle out the girl who’s been dogging him ever since she grabbed the prize that he desperately needed to win dad’s approval. This girl has her own father issues, but instead of adopting Wickie’s penchant for negotiation, she steals and tricks her way out of trouble. The two race each other to reach a treasure of the gods whose possession could spell calamity for all humans.

What if the greatest chemical disaster of our time didn’t involve oil spills or nuclear meltdowns? Instead, imagine much lower levels of exposure, inflicted over several generations and affecting every person on the planet. The result: Rising rates of everything from cancer to autism to infertility. The Human Experiment lifts the veil on this shocking reality – where untested chemicals are ubiquitous in our products and the health of future generations is on the line.

 The film follows a band of unlikely activists who are fighting back. Ranging from a conservative businessman to a teenage radical, they go head-to-head with the powerful and well-funded chemical industry to uncover a system that’s been hidden from consumers, where science is for sale and million-dollar PR campaigns keep dangerous products on the shelves. What will it take to stop this vast human experiment before it’s too late for our health?

What do you do when you’re on the beach waiting for someone to pose a riddle to you, but there’s no one around? Why not do what sister-and-brother zoologists Laura and Robert Sams do: Find a magical journal that needs sharks’ teeth to reveal its riddles and go on a search for answers. The sibling filmmakers’ love of nature—especially sea creatures—brings to life this charming, rib-tickling, inventive and engaging quest to find a tooth from the biggest living shark. Along the way, Laura and Rob encounter a singing sea lion who celebrates the great white shark, a pirate who trades in tiny things and a seagull who’s afraid of sharks (but shouldn’t be). Spectacular underwater footage of sharks—including operatic sharks—enhance The Shark Riddle’s wonderful journey.
