Children of the Mist

Let the Little Light Shine

Mama Bears

The Pez Outlaw

There was a time in the 90s when pez dispensers were worth more, gram-for-gram, than cocaine or gold. Sensing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Steve Glew, a small-town farmer and machinist, smuggled pez dispensers into the USA from Eastern Europe and made millions. It was all a dream come true, until Steve’s arch-nemesis, “the Pezident”, decided to destroy him.

Riotsville, USA

Riotsville is an actual place, but you won’t find it on any map. Built as a stand-in for Anytown, USA, Riotsville was conceived by the U.S. military in the late 60s to train riot police to stop dissent. Sierra Pettengill’s brilliant — and disturbing — all-archival film takes us back to the past as a lens for analyzing the present.
