Cinema of the real

The art of listening to reality

We direct and produce films

that are more novelistic than journalistic or political.
Reality is complex, contradictory, and multidimensional, and cinema, like life, can embrace it all.
To us, cinema of the real is a powerful alchemic process that can liberate people from the stories they carry within:
the filmmakers transform the segment of reality that resonate with them into a film;
the film’s witnesses cathartically transmute their experiences into performance;
the audiences shift perspectives as they identify with new levels of reality that seemed so out of reach.
