2015 – U.S.A. – English—100 min.
In the early 1900s, businessman and philanthropist, Julius Rosenwald, who, with Richard Sears built Sears Roebuck and Company, uses his considerable wealth to build more than 5,000 schools to help African-Americans in the south. Rosenwald isn’t just a portrait of a great American or his powerful company, but an excavation of an ugly stain on our history and a reminder of what one person can do to uproot it.

2014 – U.S.A. – English – 91 minutes.
Jewish culture reflects the heart of a vital ethnic history. As that culture continues to shift and adapt alongside mainstream America, delicatessen food, as its name suggests, remains a beloved communal delicacy. In Houston, Texas, third generation deli man, Ziggy Gruber, has built, arguably, the finest delicatessen-restaurant in U.S. history. His story - augmented by the stories of other iconic delis, such as Katz’s, Second Avenue Deli, Nate and Al, Carnegie and the Stage - embodies a tradition indelibly linked to savory, nostalgic foods.
