The film contextualizes acid violence as both a human rights violation and a gendered form of violence. Marina, who was granted asylum to enter the U.S., struggles to emerge from a shattered self-image and escape a constant state of fear. She breaks her long silence with the hope that she can gain some form of justice, if not in the judicial system then at least in the court of public opinion.\u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36317090\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"quotes\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSpecial Jury Prize\/Human Rights\u003c\/strong\u003e, Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival,\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e 2011\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCourage Award\u003c\/strong\u003e presented to Tat Marina \u0026amp; \u003cem\u003eFinding Face, \u003c\/em\u003eDisOrient International Film Festival, 2011\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Best Documentary Feature\u003c\/strong\u003e, San Diego Asian Film Festival, 2010\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner Best Film\u003c\/b\u003e, Astoria International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eOfficial Selection,\u003c\/b\u003e San Francisco DocFest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eOfficial Selection\u003c\/b\u003e, Festival Int.

Months before the birth, Sujeylin is still a glue addict who lives off the generosity of her drug-dealing boyfriend and the NGOs peppering the city. She doesn't expect the arrival of her baby to change her own life considerably. She simply plans to raise her in the park where she has been living with the group of colorful characters she considers her only family. She never imagined the scope of the challenges and dangers she and her young daughter would face. Sujeylin kicks her glue habit weeks before giving birth. Although she is strong, she is still vulnerable to picking up her old vices at the first difficulty she encounters. There are many other challenges, too. The park is an unhealthy place for a newborn, not to mention its dangers and instability. Even worse, the police could show up any time to take Karla away from her. Driven by a desire to create something she herself never had — a true family — the young mother makes three attempts to escape their perilous situation in the park. KARLA'S ARRIVAL is an intense personal journey of a young woman's venture into motherhood under extreme circumstances.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59949013\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eJury Prize\u003c\/b\u003e, One World Human Rights Documentary Film Festival – Pristina, Kosovo\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eBest Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, Bar International Film Festival – Bar, Montenegro\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eBest Feature Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, MujerDOC – Soria, Spain\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eSecond Prize National Feature Competition\u003c\/b\u003e, DocumentaMadrid – Madrid, Spain\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eA unique vision of an urgent reality the world should be exposed to.

She simply plans to raise her in the park where she has been living with the group of colorful characters she considers her only family. She never imagined the scope of the challenges and dangers she and her young daughter would face. Sujeylin kicks her glue habit weeks before giving birth. Although she is strong, she is still vulnerable to picking up her old vices at the first difficulty she encounters. There are many other challenges, too. The park is an unhealthy place for a newborn, not to mention its dangers and instability. Even worse, the police could show up any time to take Karla away from her. Driven by a desire to create something she herself never had — a true family — the young mother makes three attempts to escape their perilous situation in the park. KARLA'S ARRIVAL is an intense personal journey of a young woman's venture into motherhood under extreme circumstances.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59949013\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eJury Prize\u003c\/b\u003e, One World Human Rights Documentary Film Festival – Pristina, Kosovo\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eBest Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, Bar International Film Festival – Bar, Montenegro\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eBest Feature Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, MujerDOC – Soria, Spain\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eSecond Prize National Feature Competition\u003c\/b\u003e, DocumentaMadrid – Madrid, Spain\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eA unique vision of an urgent reality the world should be exposed to.

Inspired by their 2007 memoir, THE POWER OF TWO offers an intimate portrayal of the bond between half-Japanese twin sisters Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, their battle with the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) and miraculous survival through double lung transplants. Defying all odds, Ana and Isa have emerged as authors, athletes and global advocates for organ donation, and their connection to the CF and transplant communities provides rare insight into the struggles — and overlooked joys — of chronic illness. Featuring archival footage and probing expert interviews, this poignant directorial debut of Academy Award nominated producer Marc Smolowitz presents a multi-faceted portrayal of a society at a tipping point around this triumph of modern medicine. Evocative without being sentimental, THE POWER OF TWO reveals the twins not as heroines but as authentic women who share our fears about mortality and inspire us to make a difference.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145554113?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145554113\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eThe Power Of Two (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/collectiveeyeblog.tumblr.com\/post\/50028529796\/interview-with-the-power-of-twos-stenzel-twins\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cbr\u003eCLICK HERE\u003c\/a\u003e to read Collective Eye's interview with the Stenzel twins\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner Slate Award Best Documentary Feature\u003cb\u003e, California Independent Film Festival\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWorld Premiere\u003cb\u003e, DocuWeeks Theatrical Showcase\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eInternational Premiere\u003cb\u003e, Tokyo International Film Festival \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner Audience Choice Award,\u003cb\u003e San Diego Asian Film Festival   \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003e\u003cb\u003e30 FILM FESTIVALS SELECTION \u0026amp; 10 FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS! \u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"...COMPELLING...POETIC...

Inspired by their 2007 memoir, THE POWER OF TWO offers an intimate portrayal of the bond between half-Japanese twin sisters Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, their battle with the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) and miraculous survival through double lung transplants. Defying all odds, Ana and Isa have emerged as authors, athletes and global advocates for organ donation, and their connection to the CF and transplant communities provides rare insight into the struggles — and overlooked joys — of chronic illness. Featuring archival footage and probing expert interviews, this poignant directorial debut of Academy Award nominated producer Marc Smolowitz presents a multi-faceted portrayal of a society at a tipping point around this triumph of modern medicine. Evocative without being sentimental, THE POWER OF TWO reveals the twins not as heroines but as authentic women who share our fears about mortality and inspire us to make a difference.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145554113?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145554113\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eThe Power Of Two (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/collectiveeyeblog.tumblr.com\/post\/50028529796\/interview-with-the-power-of-twos-stenzel-twins\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cbr\u003eCLICK HERE\u003c\/a\u003e to read Collective Eye's interview with the Stenzel twins\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner Slate Award Best Documentary Feature\u003cb\u003e, California Independent Film Festival\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWorld Premiere\u003cb\u003e, DocuWeeks Theatrical Showcase\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eInternational Premiere\u003cb\u003e, Tokyo International Film Festival \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWinner Audience Choice Award,\u003cb\u003e San Diego Asian Film Festival   \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003e\u003cb\u003e30 FILM FESTIVALS SELECTION \u0026amp; 10 FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS! \u003cbr\u003e \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"...COMPELLING...POETIC...

More than anything, she wants to make her family proud of her. So, fueled by the opportunity for a better education and enticed by MTV-inspired visions of America, Mai travels to the United States for her senior year of high school. Nothing in her wildest imagination prepares Mai for her crash landing in rural Mississippi, where her relationships with white Pentecostal and black Baptist host-families, self-proclaimed red-necks, transvestites, and South Vietnamese immigrants challenge her long-held ideas about America, herself, freedom, and even about Vietnam.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/145559307?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"375\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/145559307\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eMai's America (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eDistinguished Documentary Achievement Feature Documentary, IDA\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAudience Award for Feature Documentary, SXSW\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eGolden Gate Certificate of Merit, San Francisco International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Northampton Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Magnolia Independent Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest Documentary, Indie Memphis\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBest of Festival, Wine Country Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Insightful and bittersweet, the film provides an unexpected picture of America through the eyes of a charming candid heroine.”\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e — Tini Tran, Associated Press\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Astonishing.

With dignity and candor, Saoud, Haneen, and Rahman reveal the lives they lost in Baghdad, the lives they are now forced to live in their host countries, and the new life of beauty and freedom they long for every day. Rahman works as a clown in Syria, bringing love and laughter to young Iraqi refugee children. Haneen paints her memories, recalling the beauty of Iraqi women.

Rahman works as a clown in Syria, bringing love and laughter to young Iraqi refugee children. Haneen paints her memories, recalling the beauty of Iraqi women.

She is 36, without a home of her own, and living with her daughter in her mother's one-bedroom apartment. Her spirit is broken and the relationships with her mother and daughter have been harmed by despair and neglect.

Filmed in Chicago, it follows the lives of children living in dangerous communities who are making decisions that will affect the rest of their lives.

Touchingly narrated by Nickcole Collins, a teenage girl wise beyond her years, the film follows the Collins family over five years as they slowly pull themselves out of the haze of poverty, drug addiction, and violence that plagues their public housing project in Chicago. Stereotype-busting and open-minded, LEGACY paints the American Dream in honest colors to rousing effect. Improbably, the senseless killing of 14-year-old Terrell, a straight-A student and role model for the neighborhood, spurs the family to seek a better life against impossible odds. Nickcole’s mother, a high school dropout, moves in fits and starts to find a meaningful job. Aunt Wanda, mother of Terrell and longtime crack addict, enrolls herself in a drug treatment program. Nickcole catapults herself out of the inner-city trap to a college degree and a comfortable life. It’s impossible not to cheer for these incredible real-life heroes as they cry and laugh, stumble and get back up again on their way to something better. In LEGACY, award-winning filmmaker Tod Lending does that rarest of things—he gives voice to the voiceless.
