The Edge of Purpose

2019 Directed by Winslow Perry

THE EDGE OF PURPOSE profiles nine individuals who have  built unique routes to success by following their passions  in relentless pursuit of finding meaning in life. Capturing the  essence of the human experience, this deeply moving film is a  unique exploration of what it means to have a purpose.


Anatomy of Wings

2020 Directed by Nikiea Redmond & Kirsten D'Andrea Hollander
First gathering together to create an after-school film project, ten Black middle school girls return each week to collaborate with mentors in this film about their own coming-of-age. Weeks turn into months,  months turn into years, and eventually the girls set off on separate journeys of their own. As the girls grow into women, their self-defined  ‘second family’ is left to question if their solidarity will survive.


The Real Right Stuff

2020 Directed by Tom Jennings

THE REAL RIGHT STUFF shares the remarkable true story of  our nation’s first astronauts, the original Mercury 7, and NASA’s  Project Mercury program, which revolutionized America’s role in  human space exploration. Told entirely through archival footage, original radio broadcasts, interviews, and home movies, this  film is a full transportation back to the late 1950’s in America. A  must watch for space enthusiasts young and old.


Eternal Harvest

2021 Directed by Karen Coates &
Jerry Redfern

Lao People’s Democratic Republic, 71 minutes 50 years after the Vietnam War, an estimated 80 million  unexploded bombs remain in Laos, having killed or gravely  injured more than 20,000 civilians. While the U.S. spent $50 billion  to bomb the country, only $300 million has been spent to clean  up this deadly mess. ETERNAL HARVEST traces the failures of  policy, and underscores the urgent need for more funding.


Kili Big

2021 Directed by Ida Joglar
Who climbs mountains? In KILI BIG, twenty plus-sized women come together from around the world to train and conquer Mount Kilimanjaro as a group, empowering each other to embrace body positivity and strength. While their climb is filled with challenges and obstacles, this journey is one of inspiration, perseverance, joy, and self love. 


Open Hearts

2020 Directed by Travis Pollert &
Jacob Kostelli

This intense “week in the life” follows a medical mission in  Haiti where doctors from around the world have come together  to heal 12 Haitian children through pediatric heart surgery.  These unprecedented efforts, spearheaded by Gift of Life and  the Rotary Club, represent the only collaboration of charities  providing heart surgery in Haiti. This film will arrest your senses  and challenge your idea of what it means to serve others. Virtual viewing available to Ohio only.

World famous surgeon Mirosław Zabek is the director of the Gamma Knife Centre in Warsaw, and the preeminent pioneer of neurosurgery in the world.
