The White Helmets
Brought to you by the team behind the Oscar®-nominated film VIRUNGA, “The White Helmets” is set is Aleppo, Syria in early 2016 as the violence intensifies and follows three volunteer rescue workers as they put everything on the line to save civilians affected by the war, all while wracked with worry about the safety of their own loved ones.

Watani: My Homeland
The whole tragic story of the Syrian Civil war from the initial uprising against the Assad regime, the emergence of Islamic State and the ensuing refugee crisis is captured through this portrayal of four young children and their parents – it’s a deeply personal account of life turned upside down by the Syrian conflict.

Filmmaker Lee Hirsch examines five cases of youths who endure vicious persecution at the hands of their peers. Ja'meye, 14, winds up in reform school after pulling a gun on the youths who tormented her for years. Cameras record the abuse suffered by 14-year-old Alex as he's beaten and teased on the bus. Star athlete Kelby, 16, is ostracized and worse after she comes out as lesbian. Most tragic of all, two boys, one 17 and one 12, commit suicide to escape the torture.
