The United States of Nasty Women . In Development

It was supposed to be the year we finally shattered the glass ceiling. But a sharply split female electorate helped ensure that misogyny and sexism would live to see another day. In this 4×60’ docuseries, we watch as eight American women of opposing political, economic and cultural backgrounds explore the reasons behind their deepest and most visceral divisions, and what can be done to repair the rift.

Old Men Singing . Released Spring 2017

After losing touch for more than 50 years, a collegiate a cappella group reunites on campus to reminisce, settle old scores, and find out if they still have what it takes to perform together. This sweet film reminds us of the enduring power of music and the bonds of friendship it can inspire. From journalist and first-time director Mickey Rapkin (whose book ‘Pitch Perfect’ inspired the franchise) and director Zack Weil (founder and operator of Contact Light Films).
