Open Secret (30 min.)

Melanie Jeffcoat (Writer, Director, Producer) Open Secret is taken from actual transcripts from Alabama’s 1901 Constitutional Convention where delegates openly discussed the disenfranchisement of blacks and poor whites, as well as the dismissal of the women’s right to vote. Open Secret is meant to raise awareness and to promote proactive discussion about our Alabama Constitution. Open Secret is a short film written, directed and produced by Melanie Jeffcoat with support from the Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform, League of Women Voters of Alabama, the Alabama Association of University Women and Greater Birmingham Ministries.

Bevel’s Last Sermon (26 min.)

Seth McClellan (Director, Editor, Producer) Thorn Creek Productions | Erroneously referred to as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “lieutenant,” Rev. James Bevel is more aptly defined as the second half of the King-Bevel team. Beginning his movement career as a student leader in the Nashville Student Movement in 1960, Bevel helped form the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and worked to end segregation at lunch counters, in movie theaters, on interstate travel, in public accommodations, and in housing. His most important achievement was the development of the nonviolent movement strategy for the right to vote in Selma, 1965. His civil rights accomplishments and efforts to end the war in Vietnam were little known outside of movement circles until he was arrested in 2007 on charges of incest. This film was his last interview before succumbing to pancreatic cancer on December 19, 2008. (2010)

Blood Born (19 min.)

In this bittersweet story of first love, a group of high school students travel to a cabin in the woods for a senior trip, where one student will reveal a secret that could destroy a relationship forever. Tia (Trishunda Mooney) much like most young women, dreams of a future with an exciting career and wants nothing more than to marry her high school sweetheart, Jaden (Kellen Osborne) and make beautiful babies with him. However, Tia will first have to accept that life isn’t always that simple. As she comes of age, she learns that there is a path to happiness, and for her it will have to begin with truth. Blood Born explores many of the modern day challenges of young dating.

Forks Over Knives (90 min.)

Directed by: Lee Fulkerson FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional scientist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic. Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed – by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.
