Woven from footage collected over a quarter of a century, ROCIO is the story of a mother's love and the American Dream. When doting mother of three Rocio is suddenly diagnosed with terminal kidney cancer, her son Dario takes a leave of absence from Harvard College to come home and take care of her. Their battle against the disease leads them into the world of alternative medicine, where they find hope shimmering at a clinic across the border. The catch: Pursuing this last chance at survival might mean giving up everything they've ever worked for.
The film will be screening Tuesday, March 19th and Friday, March 22nd at the San Diego Latino Film Festival

This new classroom-friendly 22-minute documentary reveals the astonishing moral foresight of a man known for organizing agricultural workers in the 70's and 80's. Cesar Chavez: Respect for All, provides a crash course in Cesar's leadership of the vulnerable people who toiled in the fields, but also illuminates his advocacy for women in the workplace, gay equality, and animal rights, among other contemporary causes.
The film follows Cesar's great-grandniece, dynamic 10-year-old activist Genesis Palacio-Butler, on a journey of discovery to learn more about her famous relative. At the Chavez National Monument in Keene, CA, she talks with his son Paul Chavez and others who knew him. The United Farm Workers Union and the Chavez Foundation cooperated with the filmmakers and endorse the movie.

This video was shot in Sutton Clock Shop which has been in business in New York City for over 60 years. The shop is run by Sebastian Laws, a master clockmaker, who learned his craft under the tutelage of his father, a former member of the Danish Underground in World War II and a rower who competed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.
Originally located on Sutton Place in NYC, this video was shot at its location on the corner of 61st and Lexington, where it resided for 45 years. In late 2012 it moved to it's present location at 218 East 82nd Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue.
Sutton Clock Shop has gained a lot of publicity since the video was released. It was featured on CNN, the PBS program Marketing Warriors, the Huffington Post and the Emmy award winning PBS series, New York Originals.
Originally produced for Etsy.com, the Sutton Clock Shop video won Best Film in WNET's Reel13 short film contest and was a finalist in Shooting People's film of the month competition.
