The Tyranny of Distance | 9 min | Directed by Gabriel Diamond and Matthew Beighley, Liberia

Fifteen years of civil war in Liberia has resulted in one of the world’s worst doctor shortages and cut off the country’s rural poor from basic healthcare. Community health workers trained and equipped by the non-profit Last Mile Health are working to deliver lifesaving health services to the 1.2 million Liberians living in the most remote reaches of the country.

Little Rebel follows the extraordinary story of Isatou Jallow — a remarkable West African woman from The Gambia, and now Seattle resident. Since seeking asylum in the USA (2012), Isatou has pursued graduate degrees at the University Washington/UW Law School while she continuously advocates for women, asylees/refugees and people with disabilities.

Trump's America | 24 min | Directed by Peter Iliff, USA

When Frank, 40, a wise-cracking panhandler, is thrown out of affluent Royal Oaks, and dumped by police on L.A.’s Skid Row, a zealous reporter convinces Frank to return to Royal Oaks, provoke these cops to beat him up again, and this time get it on tape. But the plan goes horribly wrong, making this a provocative look at the growing homeless epidemic in Trump’s America.
