WelcomeA young woman gets turned back at the airport, while her fiancé waits outside.

There is A Garden In order to control the population, the dictatorship of Iran has done its best to destroy the memories and imagination of its perople. Using animation and images, filmmaker and ex-political prisoner, Masoud Raouf shows us how step by step the visual landscape along with art and culture were subverted and replaced as a means to install the government's theocracy. As an art of restoring the human map, Raouf shares his stories based on his experiences and memories of pre and post revolution Iran whil living in exile. 


Einen Koffer/Suitcase A film that questions the policy of building walls to keep people out.



Born in Mexico, But...: A collage of images illustrating what it is to be a teenager in America, narrated by a young woman who finds out she is undocumented and sees no future ahead of her. 


Dreamers Among Us In 2012, students from the Hudson Valley Youth Arts group teamed up with award-winning documentary filmmakers Robin Romano and Ilene Cutler to create a film about young undocumented students yearning for the passage of the Dream Act in NY state. DREAMers Among Us examines the desire and need for the Dream Act and the lives of the students who have not been able to continue their education.
