Passaic – Douglas Underdahl (Millburn, New Jersey)

The son of an investigative journalist stumbles upon his late father’s last unsolved case – a murder that tore apart the gritty town of Passaic, NJ – and he needs to decide if he will dig back into the decades-old crime, to discover the truth behind the tragedy, in order to better understand his father and, ultimately, himself. Based on a true story. 2017; 15 min. Special Guest Appearance by Director Douglas Underdahl  and Writer/Producer Michael Klausner!

Generations of Artists: Roosevelt, NJ – Ilene Dube (Princeton, New Jersey)

Ever since mural painter Ben Shahn was invited by the WPA (Works Progress Administration) in the 1930s to create a mural in Jersey Homesteads, this experimental rural farming community, now known as Roosevelt, New Jersey, has become a haven for potters, painters, musicians, and artists.  A loving portrait of a time, a town, and a creative New Jersey community.  2017; 20 min. Special Guest Appearance by Director Ilene Dube!

Levinsky Park – Beth Kruvant (South Orange, New Jersey)

No country has been more historically indebted to refugees than Israel. Yet, in the Levinsky Park neighborhood of Tel Aviv, a community of sub-Saharan African refugees seeking freedom in a strange new country has found itself in a vexing clash between two cultures. The film provocatively ventures into the lives of the denizens of Levinsky Park, incisively capturing the mixed feelings of resentment, apprehension, and acceptance on the part of the established Jewish community along with the exhilaration and anxiety felt by the newest residents. A fascinating and nuanced portrait of one of the defining global issues of our time: refugee migration. In English and Hebrew, subtitled. 2016; 66 min. Special Guest Appearance by Director Beth Kruvant!
