Ray, Ariel, and Alondra are young people growing up in Agua Prieta, Mexico, and Douglas, Arizona, neighboring border towns defined by undocumented migration and a militarized border. Frontier Youth transcends the political debates, focusing instead on the personal stories of its protagonists, each of whom is profoundly marked by American immigration and border policies. Through their perspectives, the film examines the challenges of bi-cultural youth; as security along the border continues to tighten, they enter adulthood with inseparable ties to both sides.

"Frontier Youth is a moving and subtly provocative film that puts a human face on the questions of immigration and border enforcement. After seeing Kane's film, all students will have a fuller appreciation for the heart-wrenching consequences of our immigration policies and practices." – Gary Segura, Professor of Political Science, Stanford University

Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw
From the rough-edged courts of Astoria, Queens and recruited by Coach Pat Summitt for the University of Tennessee's Lady Vols, Chamique Holdsclaw was hailed as the "female Michael Jordan," impressing crowds with her artistry, athleticism and drive. A 3-time NCAA champ and No.1 draft pick in the WNBA, Holdsclaw seemed destined for a spectacular professional career-until her long-suppressed battle with mental illness threatened to derail her life.
Mind/Game intimately chronicles Holdsclaw's athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, and her decision-despite public stigma- to become an outspoken mental health advocate. Still, she would face dramatic, unexpected challenges to her own recovery. The film, narrated by Glenn Close, tells a powerful story of courage, struggle, and redemption.
