We Were Here is the first documentary to take a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco. It explores how the City’s inhabitants were affected by, and how they responded to, that calamitous epidemic. Though a San Francisco-based story, We Were Here extends beyond San Francisco and beyond AIDS itself. It speaks to our capacity as individuals to rise to the occasion, and to the incredible power of a community coming together with love, compassion, and determination.
“Of all the cinematic explorations of the AIDS crisis, not one is more heartbreaking and inspiring than "WE WERE HERE," a quiet, elegiac documentary about the response to the epidemic in San Francisco... Shattering…” Stephen Holden, New York Times

A new series spawn from the inspiration of laughter and casually interlaced with the dramatic elements of a life in moving pictures. TH3M! is a sexy sonnet of fascination following the lives of seven dramatically diverse women on the verge of awakening in their personal daylight, as they strive for success, acceptance, and understanding within, in a world driven by opportunity and fueled by the strength of ones dreams and dedication.
Go behind the scenes at the annual International Mr. Leather competition, where thousands of men from around the world gather to compete for the title of Mr. Leather. Once a small niche community that was dismissed by critics as a carnival of gay sexual fetishes, leather has gone mainstream, and Kink Crusaders proves why. As it delves into the lives and aspirations of its contestants with humor, tasteful eroticism and pathos, it reveals a group of men for whom spiritual connection, openness and understanding are the true definition of masculinity.
