The Man Who Feared ( 8 min) 
A young white urban professional has moved into his newly purchased home in a predominantly black neighborhood; his attempts to remain inconspicuous finally runs its course after a misread encounter with a fellow community member.
Director: Jehnovah Carlisle

Full Service (16 min) Abike, a Nigerian born oil industry executive and a Christian, is driving to a friend's country house when she realizes her tank is needling towards empty. She pulls into the only station she can find where she is greeted by Scott, a local who inherited his business from his grandfather. Scott has never met anyone like Abike, which leads him to make a stream of assumptions about her based on stereotypes and unexamined racial biases. When Abike challenges him, with a mixture of bold humor and equally bold gravitas, he is left to ponder their commonalties and her power. Full Service explores the effects of globalization on local economies and culture, our propensity to stereotype others, and the fact that we are all more complex than we see
Director:  KPage Stuart Valdes

Tom Freeman of the North (18 min) A young black Harlemite named Tom, who interns at a start-up that just opened up in his neighborhood, is invited to his boss's housewarming party off of Malcolm X Boulevard. While Tom is looking forward to use this opportunity to move up the ranks by gifting his boss with a jar of artisanal mayonnaise, his brother, Desean, sees this party as symbol for the rapid gentrification of Harlem and the oppression of his people. Struggling to find a common ground between moving up and doing what's right, the two brothers go to the party only to discover that artisanal mayonnaise isn't what it's cracked up to be.
Director: Mohammed Rabbani

Padlock Men (16 min) 86 yr. old Walter “Posey” Fodrell shares a memoir of a historically unknown secret pact between Martin Luther King, Malcolm X & John F. Kennedy. 'Blood for Blood Knuckles Dirty' the Civil Rights movement will never be viewed the same. A History Never Spoke A Bond Never Broken
