"Tortas Ahogadas." - A video about resistance and repression in Guadalajara during the 3rd Latin American, Caribbean, and European Summit on May 28, 2004. 4 people are still in jail following those events.
"Green with a Vengence" - An informative Australian-made video about the case of Jeffrey "Free" Luers, an eco-defense prisoner who is currently serving an outrageous 23 year sentence in Oregon for the burning of 3 SUV’s.
"Attica is all of Us" - A brand new video about the 1971 uprising at Attica prison in New York State. That event, which culminated in the slaughter of several dozen inmates by U.S. troops, is an early illustration of the abuse and torture that is common place in prisons here and abroad.
"Charisse shumate: Fighting for our lives" – The story of a woman prisoner who catalyzed other incarcerated women to unite and stand up against the California Department of Corrections.
