One Child

On May 12, 2008, an 8.0 magnitude earthquake hit Sichuan, China, killing nearly 90,000 people - many of them are children. Under China’s strict family planning policy, every one is their family’s only child. ONE CHILD follows three families from the devastated city of Beichuan as they struggle to understand the disaster and find a way to live with their personal tragedy.

Prize of the Pole

In 1897, Robert E. Peary, the first American to “conquer" the North Pole, brought back six polar Inuit to create an exhibition at a New York museum. The only one who survived was a young boy. Peary’s Inuit great-grandson confronts this unsettling history when he makes an expedition to his ancestral home in order to discover his cultural legacy.
