In 2005, 20-year-old Ryan Ferguson was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. dream/killer is the story of how his father, Bill, embarked on a 10-year campaign to prove Ryan’s innocence. The film is chock-full of incredible characters. From the questionable District Attorney Kevin Crane, and the highly-confused witness Chuck Erickson, to the high-powered Chicago attorney Kathleen Zellner, the doc depicts both a highly flawed justice system, as well as one that can work brilliantly.
In the quintessentially American suburb of Pleasanton, California, where football is king and trash-talking criticism is wasted, lies a legend. No, not resident NFL legend John Madden, Pleasanton is home to the Pederson family who have had four generations of star players play on one of California’s best high school football teams, The Eagles.
What sets director Andrew Jenks’ ALL AMERICAN FAMILY apart is that silence is golden – literally – an element in which the Pederson family, 30 of their relatives, their classmates and wider community share. Their world is silent but no less boisterous or purposeful as Zane and Jax, the final two Pederson’s at the California School for the Deaf, prepare to lead their team to another title.
It’s an inspiring journey of a family just like any other with similar expectations, familial and social camaraderie and a love for sport.

Former NBA center Shawn Bradley is mostly remembered for two things -- being one of the tallest players to ever play in the NBA and for being on the wrong end of a lot of great dunks. Taken second overall in the 1993 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, Bradley is considered by many to be an NBA bust.
In POSTERIZED, Bradley shows us that there is more to life than basketball and that success cannot only be defined by what's done on a basketball court.
