"Andrew Jenks is a maverick filmmaker with a great vision and dynamic on-screen presence. He has a rare ability to deeply connect with his subjects, making this series an intensely authentic and engaging viewing experience. "

- Tony DiSanta (President, DiGa)

Season 2 was, ‘a raw, intimate look at daily struggles and victories, and what it means to be a young person today.’
— US World News and Report
MTV’s World of Jenks is one of the few unscripted shows that’s actually snark-free and helpful to people. While I’m not a fan of all MTV fare, I do like how this series gives a voice to all kinds of teens, not just the pretty ones in fashionable clothes.

IT'S NOT OVER

It's Not Over tells the inspiring story of three courageous millennials from around the world who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Award winning filmmaker Andrew Jenks takes viewers on a journey across India, South Africa and the United States to experience the epidemic first hand. The result is a deeply personal and uplifting story that is rarely represented in popular culture.

Jenks takes viewers on a journey to South Africa, where together with Lucky, explores an area with more people living with HIV than anywhere else in the world; to India, where Sarang, an openly gay HIV+ theater director fights to preserve his way of life; and to Middle America where Paige highlights how she has turned her bad experiences of being bullied and teased into something good as a youth advocate for HIV.

It's Not Over was made possible by the M·A·C AIDS Fund and is currently available to view via Netflix, Hulu, Pivot, and SnagFilms worldwide.

THE ZEN OF BOBBY V

"Jenks and his crew keep the tradition of verite cinema going by simply capturing what happens in front of the camera." - Variety

The Zen of Bobby V focuses on former MLB manager Bobby Valentine and his current job managing the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan. The doc gives viewers unprecedented access to Valentine and his team, visiting a world where cheerleaders chant between innings and rock bands perform before each game, while exploring the impact globalization has on the game's present and future. It is the best look inside the culture of Japanese baseball through the eyes of one of American baseball's greatest current ambassadors.



"It's almost impossible to believe that a kid could produce a documentary like this. It's a gorgeous, hilarious, sad, wonderful, unblinking look at the joy of life - even at the end of it...Bravo." - The Daily News

Just like the other residents at the assisted living facility Harbor Place, I played bingo, hung out in the courtyards contemplating “the golden years”, and even helped fellow neighbors change their oxygen tanks. However, unlike Tammy (age 95) or even Bill (age 80), I am only nineteen years old.

My name is Andrew Jenks and this past summer I moved into a senior residence in Florida. I moved into room 335. For one summer I did all of the things that old people do. I wanted to find the answer to the question: how do they feel now that they face the end of their lives?

I laughed at their jokes about sex, played baseball with canes instead of bats, and raced through the hallways in my friend’s wheelchair. By the fourth week, three of my closest friends were hospitalized and my best chum, Bill, stopped talking to me. I coaxed my neighbor through a heart attack, saw the heartbreak of dementia, and witnessed the death of a friend.

By the end of the summer, I had formed unimaginable bonds with some of the greatest, and oldest, people that life has to offer. I came to realize that it is in such friendships and the spirit in which you live that meaning is to be found. My two good college buddies followed this journey and recorded over 200 hours of footage, creating “Andrew Jenks, Room 335”.

Now available on Netflix.
