We have two (yes, two!) feature films launching this year in 2017. First, Live from Mogadishu (dir. Daniel J Gerstle, 100 minutes, Somalia/ Kenya, HB Productions), is a documentary following Somali hiphop group Waayaha Cusub and their dangerous journey to bring live international music back to their capitol to rally youth to help end the war. Second, Thunder Spiral (dir. Daniel J Gerstle, 90 minutes, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Somalia, South Sudan, HB Productions) is more of a surreal doc exploring how war survivors cope with post-traumatic stress, often seeking meaning and beauty in dark places. We are also proud to support the launch of Syrian Metal is War (dir. Monzer Darwish, 100 minutes, Syria, Matar Productions).
