Between Us

Mary Katzke got both the idea and the money for her latest documentary unexpectedly: via a life-threatening illness. Misdiagnosed in 1991, Katzke later found she had advanced breast cancer, requiring massive chemotherapy. Dropped by her insurance company, she sued her doctor to cover medical bills, promising herself that if she survived five years, she’d make a film for other women in the same crisis. With her settlement, she created a life-affirming video, Between Us, for hospitals to give to new breast cancer patients.

Bird by Bird with Annie

A portrait film about bestselling author and laugh-out-loud funny lady Anne Lamott, this film is a moving tale of survival. She is a lovable paradox, a born-again Christian and liberal activist. Spend 40 minutes with her through this film and you will wish you were meeting her for tea tomorrow.

Bottle

“Bottle” is the story of an unlikely friendship between a clump of sand and a pile of snow—a far more engaging concept than it may sound and the type of story that can only be told through animation.
