    Risking injury and incarceration, an environmental activist disrupts the clear-cutting of an ancient redwood grove by sitting on a tiny platform a hundred feet up in the tree canopy. Already three years into the tree-sit when filming begins, AMONG GIANTS blends vérité cinematography with intimate personal reflection to create a vivid picture of life in the trees and the unwavering dedication of the activists. This film was shot and edited in 2011, and a year later, the tree-sit ended as a victory for the tree-sitters (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/06/26/18716373.php) As of 2013, negotiations are still underway for the sale of the land, and the exact acreage is still being determined. Huge thanks to "Farmer," "Bingmouse," "Amanita," and the rest of the tree-sitters for allowing us to live with them and film their story. Learn more about their work, donate, and see what they're up to now: http://efhumboldt.org for further requests about the film, please contact info@rainhousecinema.com Thanks for watching! - Chris, Ben, Sam // Rainhouse Cinema

The filmmakers Jean Tsien and Joshua Weinstein mixed with the colourful community of drivers, mechanics and office clerks working for a long-established taxi company in Queens to document that the original ideal of the common man’s Big Apple is still very much alive and present in this slightly seedy enterprise. They avoided the trap of producing a simple assertion of an idyllic or even paradisiacal situation, opting instead for a highly enjoyable demonstration of that unspectacular and delightful feeling described by Hemingway when he remembered an encounter with some craftsmen during a stay in Paris in the 1920s: “It was easier to think if I was walking and doing something or seeing people doing something that they understood.“ What’s left? The certainty that it can’t hurt to feel grateful for little things occasionally. – Ralph Eue (DOK Leipzig Programmer)

              What do the contents of your pockets say about you? Filmmaker James Lees asks Londoners to share what they're carrying in their pockets. From tiny treasures to the downright bizarre, their answers provide quick and charming social insight. Pockets was one of four short films we produced for Channel 4 and BRITDOC which brought together filmmakers and musicians/composers to make a short documentary inspired by a piece of their music. The films premiered at BRITDOC 2008 and screened on Channel 4. Pockets also screened in Official Selection at Los Angeles Film Festival, Hot Docs, SXSW, Silverdocs, Seattle International Film Festival, Telluride Mountainfilm Festival, CMJ Film Festival, Cork International Film Festival, SEE Brighton Documentary Film Festival, NPA Short Film Awards and over 30 others around the world.

                  Water A Short Documentary By Bari Pearlman In the developing world, water-gathering is primarily a woman's job, and rural Tibet is no exception. Three to four times a day, she carries a heavy bucket to a potable source of water - sometimes as far as a mile away - and brings it back home 80-pounds full. Though necessary for her own survival and her family's, this task is not only physically debilitating, but the hours she spends doing it every day keep her from having time for an education, a wage-earning job, or even much-needed rest from her other exhausting responsibilities. WATER offers us a rare opportunity to witness this ritual as a Tibetan woman patiently and painstakingly collects water on her family's yak farm. Shot on location in remote Nangchen, Tibet.
