Films and Documentaries
Over the course of 2 years, a police officer turned first-time filmmaker and his wife traveled the United States and brought together experts and current/former law-enforcement officers in an effort to explore the highly secretive, often misunderstood, and socially taboo topic of what the officer experiences in the wake of an officer-involved shooting. What they found was a profound statement on the sheer humanity of the men and women who make these split-second decisions and then enter into an emotionally charged series of events and questions. Featuring an exclusive interview with Officer Stephen Roach, whose shooting of an unarmed teenager in 2001 led to the Cincinnati riots. Thousands of people have seen and been effected by the film and discussion, and hundreds of thousands more now have the ability to be impacted by the DVD.

We have all watched the news and seen the stores where police brutality is implied and demonstrated in videos. We can feel the outrage growing in the protests and resulting in more resistance and police officers being ambushed and civilians killed as well. Assumptions and judgements have been made on both sides. The current population in the US is about 325 million. The amount of sworn officers is about 1 million. Officers were civilians before entering the academy and they walk among us anonymously (except sometimes you can just tell by the stache). But it is safe to say they know what it is like to walk in our shoes but most of us don’t know what it is like to walk in their boots. This film does not intend to be a commercial or a bunch of sappy videos of police officers doing good deeds. It is about putting things in perspective. Because if you are too close or too far from something it is hard to see it clearly.
Love Bug Trumps Hate
“A Beautiful Day Tomorrow: Taking Suicide Awareness on the Road” is a professionally-edited documentary film that chronicles suicide awareness advocate Gabriel Nathan’s 1100 mile journey in his Herbie the Love Bug replica, emblazoned with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s number, in an effort to decrease the stigma associated with suicide and to spread awareness and a message of hope to all they encountered.
