Investigative Journalism for Change
We realized with our first film that audience engagement doesn't stop there--actually, it begins after the final frame fades. We actively build communities around our films--hey, these are provocative for a reason--and seek partnerships with expert organizations, colleges and universities, and activists. The goal: to build a better world, of course! From screenings and conversations to conferences and educational outreach, we want to give our audiences opportunities to have an impact.
Haiti: Where Did the Money Go?
In the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, half of all U.S. households donated to relief efforts estimated at $1.4 billion dollars. Film at 11 followed the paper trail, talked with relief experts and walked through the internal displacement camps of Haitians left homeless by the quake. This critical film, "Haiti: Where Did the Money Go?", leaves you with the question: How do we do better at doing good?
Featured Project: "The Uncondemned"
"The Uncondemned" is the story of the first time rape was ever prosecuted as a war crime. The Akayesu case at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda was the first genocide trial since Nuremberg. It would be a historic verdict for much, much more. Co-Directors Michele Mitchell and Nick Louvel have traveled to Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, around the U.S. and Europe to track down the men and women on all sides. "This is the best story I've ever had," Mitchell says. Film at 11 is entirely crowdfunding this film.
Since the release of "Haiti: Where Did the Money Go?" the Film at 11 team has followed developments on the ground. With each new project, we will be gathering breaking news, announcements and updates in the What's New section of the website.
