    At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen.

  • What Lies Upstream
    What Lies Upstream | Director: Cullen Hoback  
    Year of production: 2017 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    In this classic detective story, investigative filmmaker Cullen Hoback travels to West Virginia to uncover the truth behind a massive chemical spill that left 300,000 people without drinking water for months. But when Hoback discovers an obscene collusion between chemical corporations and the highest levels of government, the investigation spirals in a terrifying direction, and we learn the frightening truth about what lies upstream of us all.

    3 1/2 Minutes, Ten Bullets | Director: Marc Silver  
    Year of production: 2015 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    On Black Friday 2012, four African-American teenagers stopped at a gas station to buy gum and cigarettes. One of them, Jordan Davis, argued with Michael Dunn, a white man parked beside them, over the volume of music playing in their car. The altercation turned to tragedy when Dunn fired 10 bullets at the unarmed boys, killing Davis almost instantly. The seamlessly constructed, riveting documentary film 3 1⁄2 MINUTES, TEN BULLETS explores the danger and subjectivity of Florida’s Stand Your Ground self-defense laws by weaving Dunn’s trial with a chorus of citizen and pundit opinions, alongside the wrenching experiences of Jordan Davis’ parents.

  • Trapped
    Trapped | Director: Dawn Porter  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    U.S. abortion clinics are fighting to survive. Since 2010, hundreds of laws regulating abortion clinics have been passed by conservative state legislatures, particularly in the south. These restrictions, known as TRAP laws (or Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) are spreading across America.
    Faced with increased costs of compliance and the alarming fear of violence from protestors, the stakes for the women and men on the frontlines couldn’t be any higher. As the battle heads to the U.S. Supreme Court, TRAPPED follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers fighting to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.

  • Freedom For The Wolf

    Year of production: 2017 | Country of production: Germany | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Democracy is in crisis. A new generation of elected leaders is dismantling freedom and democracy, as we know it. Filmed over three years in five countries, FREEDOM FOR THE WOLF is an epic investigation into this new regime of illiberal democracy. From Indian comedians to Tunisian rappers to America’s #BlackLivesMatter activists, people from every corner of the globe are fighting the same struggle against elected leaders who trample on human rights, minorities, and their political opponents.

    NB – Streaming access will be made available at a later date, TBD.

    Year of production: 2015 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    From the Academy Award-nominated filmmaking team behind THE INVISIBLE WAR, comes a startling exposé of sexual assault on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families.
    Weaving together verite footage and first-person testimonials, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education and legal justice, despite harsh retaliation, harassment, and pushback.

  • The Judge
    The Judge | Director: Ram Landes   Ami Teer  
    Year of production: 2009 | Country of production: Israel | Language: English, Hebrew (with full English subtitles available)

    Few judges anywhere have confronted the challenges faced by Aharon Barak, the former Chief Justice of Israel’s Supreme Court. A survivor of the Holocaust, he knows firsthand the dangers posed by intolerance and xenophobia, and spent his career negotiating a delicate balance between Israel as a Jewish state and Israel as a democracy. Though often controversial, his rulings have become textbook cases for law students around the world. During his tenure Barak never spoke to the media. Now that he feels his time is running out, he has agreed to bare his soul—the soul of a judge—on camera for the very first time.

  • The Coca-Cola Case
    The Coca-Cola Case | Director: Carmen Garcia   German Gutierrez  
    Year of production: 2009 | Country of production: Canada | Language: English, French (with full English subtitles available)

    In Colombia, trade unionists are being murdered to stop them forming unions, and one of the alleged companies behind the crimes is Coca-Cola. In a legal and human rights battle, three U.S. activists launch a crusade against the soft drinks giant.

  • The Freedom To Marry
    The Freedom To Marry | Director: Eddie Rosenstein  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    THE FREEDOM TO MARRY is the untold story of the most successful – and perhaps most inspiring – civil rights movement of our time. This is a riveting ride alongside Evan Wolfson, the man known as architect of the movement, and his team as they wage a decades-long battle all the way to the United States Supreme Court, providing fresh perspective on the movement’s history along the way. This is both a primer for social change and a behind-the-scenes look at how regular people can actually make a difference.

  • Crime After Crime
    Crime After Crime | Director: Yoav Potash  
    Year of production: 2011 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Crime After Crime tells the dramatic story of the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a woman imprisoned for over a quarter century due to her connection to the murder of the man who abused her. Two rookie attorneys step forward to take her case and through their perseverance, they bring to light long-lost witnesses, new testimonies from the men who committed the murder, and proof of perjured evidence.
    Their investigation ultimately attracts global attention to victims of wrongful incarceration and abuse, and the film tells an unforgettable story of a relentless quest for justice.
