Can’t Wear a Wig Forever (6 min) “Tanika wore a wig. When she was laid off, I felt sorry for her but thought she would bounce back. She had two college degrees and was coming from a reputable company, with references too. But month after month, interview after interview and nothing.” This story is about more than a young black woman and her wig.

Judith, Portrait of a Street Vendor (17 min)Judith: Portrait of a Street Vendor' is a short documentary that takes the audience on an intimate journey into the daily life of Judith, a street vendor from Guatemala who lives and works in New York City. Judith exposes the routine obstacles she and her fellow immigrant vendors face daily on the city's streets and reveals her own struggles and hopes as an immigrant worker, mother, activist and community organizer.

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry (92 min-2014) No victories are permanent. You are not allowed to retire from the fight for liberation. This stunning film resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971 as an enticing blend of historical clips and interviews.
