    In a world where deeply rooted biases and misperceptions easily take hold, life can often feel unnerving—a journey that can change for better or worse in a blink of an eye depending on how we see each other. In 10 Seconds, we see through the eyes of Ray and Jimi, who navigate their young adult worlds and what it means to be young Black men in the city. Ray tells the story of a day that he and Jimi will never forget, sharing not only their perspectives, but also the views of the police they encounter. Learn More

    Two neighbors live side-by-side in Texas. A low fence separates their gardens, but much more divides them. One grows flowers; the other raises vegetables. One was born in the U.S., the other in Mexico. One speaks English, the other Spanish. Their differences have kept them so far apart that even the arrival of a caterpillar causes disagreement—until the resulting mariposa/butterfly, and its eventual departure, unites them in wonder, sadness and a new understanding of the beautiful world they share.

    14 was inspired by the true-life event in May 2001 in which a smuggler abandoned 30 Mexicans crossing the desert, resulting in 14 deaths from dehydration. It is a starting point for exploration to investigate the complexities of people living on the border, not giving answers but raising difficult questions. The mosaic of flawed and struggling people included emphasize the importance of investigating this topic in a way that calls not only for action and conversation but, ultimately, for a collective solution.
