If the Mango Tree Could Speak

A valid video file was found, or could not be loaded!

This documentary intimately portrays ten boys and girls growing up in the midst of war in Guatemala and El Salvador. The children--ages 12 to 15--talk about war and peace, justice, ethnic identity, friendship and marriage. In a series of touching vignettes, they share their dreams and hopes as well as their pain and loss.

The video opens in the breathtaking Guatemalan highlands, home to the country's Mayan population. DIEGO watches the remains of his father being excavated from a mass grave. He talks about what it's like to live in the same tiny community with the people who killed his father. DORA, whose family is displaced, faces the challenge of maintaining her Mayan identity. SEBASTIAN's village is hidden deep in a remote area where the army and guerrillas are still fighting. He struggles to go to school in spite of the fear and danger.

In San Jos Las Flores, El Salvador, CHICO places a cross on the grave site of his relatives killed in the war, as he talks about punishment for those responsible. YESENIA and ANA collect wood, discuss their friends and birthday presents, and recount the days spent hiding in a trench during the war. We accompany GIOVANI--a war veteran at age 14--to search for his mother among a group of returned refugees. JUAN, who grew up in an orphanage, explains why there was a war and the high price his family paid. The children's stories are disturbing but their resilience toward the harsh reality around them brings hope. Their comments are honest, insightful, and occasionally humorous. More than anything, their spirits are inspiring and their characters unforgettable.

TRINIDAD - Theatrical Version
Edifying and intimate, TRINIDAD acquaints viewers with three extraordinary transwomen whose paths cross in an unlikely setting—the unassuming town of Trinidad, Colorado. Against the backdrop of the town’s history of transgender surgery, TRINIDAD invokes the passions and gender politics of these three individuals as they search for a place of empowerment and belonging.

Holy Land (Theatrical version)
"Holy Land" is an unprecedented, multi-character documentary about a tumultuous year in the West Bank. The film zeroes in on the explosive issue of the Israeli settlements: its protagonists are both Israeli settlers and the Israelis and Palestinians who oppose them. It's a cross section of the West Bank never seen in one film: right and left, secular and religious, from Hasidim to Hamas.

Off and Running
With white Jewish lesbians for parents and two adopted brothers, Brooklyn teen Avery, a local track star in high school, grew up in a unique and loving household. But Avery's curiosity about her roots compels her to contact her birth mother, thrusting her into a complicated exploration of race and identity that threatens to distance her from her family.

* Bitrate Switching?

All our streaming films implement a technology known as Bitrate Switching. This means that while viewing your purchased films, the optimal streaming experience is determined by the quality of your internet connection and the size of the player being used. This is done automatically by the website, and needs no settings or adjustment from you.
