Prizes and Screenings at the Upcoming
Society for Visual Anthropology Film Festival
We've just been informed that we have six films screening at the SVA Film Festival this November, and that three have won prizes! This festival is part of the American Anthropological Association Annual Conference.

LA SIERRA was given the Award of Excellence, the highest honor the SVA bestows on a film. THE DEVIL'S MINER was given an Award of Commendation, while COMPADRE won the Fieldwork Prize, “since the problems it depicts are so like those of many anthropologists in the field, and so rarely discussed.”

Additionally, TO BE SEEN, THE HUMAN HAMBONE and BRULY BOUABRE'S ALPHABET will be honored with screenings at this largest meeting of anthropologists in the world!

Four Recent Release to Screen at
2006 American Sociology Association Convention

We're proud to announce that four acclaimed documentaries will screen at the upcoming annual American Sociology Association Convention in Montreal.

BETWEEN MIDNIGHT AND THE ROOSTER'S CROW is a case study of the troubling connections between corporations, Western consumption, and the 3rd World. MADEMOISELLE AND THE DOCTOR is a comprehensive examination of the current international debate about the right to die. TO BE SEEN is a study of visual culture, of urban culture and an exploration of an age-old urban cultural phenomenon, street art. Last, AMERICA'S BRUTAL PRISONS exposes the violence occurring inside prisons throughout America, where prisoners are routinely abused, even tortured, by prison guards.
