CRESCENDO
When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck accepts the task of creating an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of unsolvable problems.

DRIVEWAYS

AND THEN WE DANCED
A passionate tale of love and liberation set amidst the ultraconservative confines of modern Georgian society, the film follows Merab, a devoted dancer who has been training for years with his partner Mary for a spot in the National Georgian Ensemble.

Watch the trailer.

BOOKSELLERS
Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective, and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle.

This documentary takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers. Watch the trailer.

SAINT FRANCES
Flailing 34-year-old Bridget finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances.
