    "Broken Heart Land" DVD

    "Broken Heart Land" is our last documentary that aired on WORLD Channel back in 2014. The DVD is not commercially available and we're hoping this can be a hidden gem if you are passionate about documentaries and/or LGBT issues. We spent 3 years making this film about a conservative military family in the heart of the bible belt left to unravel the mystery behind their gay teenage son's suicide. They soon discover a tragic secret, and begin to question their parenting, values, and civic responsibility amidst a heated city council election in their hometown of Norman, Oklahoma.

    "Off the Grid: Life on the Mesa" DVD

    "Off the Grid" was our first documentary that played at festivals around the world winning 8 'Best Documentary' awards and was nominated for a Gotham Award. The film went on to receive a theatrical run and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel. At just 70 minutes, this film is special to us because so many of the people we met passed away or simply disappeared. The film is about a loose-knit community of radicals live in the desert, struggling to survive with little food, less water and no electricity, as they cling to their unique vision of the American dream.
