So many countries have histories to tell, innovators have visions where video can help them get the support they need to bring their ideas to life. Film is an optimal way to bring ideas and global challenges to light. We work closely with countries leaders and innovators to ensure that their vision comes shining through in each film. We aim to educate and to shatter preconceived ideas. We try to provide a platform to ask questions and raise consciousness. Our goal is to capture the present before it's history.
