About

Movies are the most powerful cultural influence!

We like to shake up the complacent thinkers and inspire change through the moving image. We challenge the preconceived convictions about the world around us and its worldview.

We believe in taking risks in order to create art that asks the right questions, prompting our audience to uncover their own answers.

We have fun making films, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, that will change our own lives – why would you bother doing anything less?
