A Dadaist, pioneering painter and filmmaker, radical provocateur and visionary educator, Hans Richter was a major force in redefining art in the twentieth century.

The Mosuo Sisters

2013. 80 minutes. Color, DVD. Mandarin/Mosuo/Tibetan, Subtitled. Two spirited daughters from China’s last remaining matrilineal ethnic minority are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn when they lose the only jobs they’ve ever known. Left with few options, Jua Ma and La Tsuo leave Beijing for home, a remote village in the foothills of the Himalayas. But home is no longer what it was, as growing exposure to the modern world irreparably changes the provocative traditions the Mosuo have built around their belief that marriage is an attack on the family.

The Killing Fields of Dr. Haing S. Ngor

2015. 87 minutes, Color, B/W.English. The Killing Fields of Dr. Haing S. Ngor chronicles Dr. Ngor’s remarkable life journey – from a privileged life in Phnom Penh to his murder in Los Angeles…a case still muddled with theories of international conspiracy. At a time when The Killing Fields movie would be the world’s first wake-up call to the horrors of the Khmer Rouge, Dr. Ngor used his Hollywood celebrity status and became the de facto “face of Cambodia” to command global attention to the devastation of his homeland.

Imber’s Left Hand

2014. 63 minutes. Color: HD. English. In the summer of 2012, painter Jon Imber was diagnosed with a fatal degenerative disease, ALS. Imber’s Left Hand tells the story of this artist’s courageous and sometimes darkly humorous response to such a sentence. The film traces his adaptations, from switching from painting with his right hand to his left, and then to both hands as the condition progresses. Adversity only makes him more determined to paint, and paint he does: more than 100 portraits in a four-month span.
