Directed by Greg Mitchell  

ATOMIC COVER-UP is the first documentary to explore the 1945 bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki from the unique perspective of the camera crews who risked their lives filming in the irradiated aftermath. Initially started by a Japanese newsreel crew, and then continued under the supervision of the US Army, this documentary reveals how their footage was seized, classified top secret, and then buried by American officials for decades in order to hide the full human cost of the bombings as a costly nuclear arms race began. 

Based entirely on the first-hand accounts of these key members of both the Japanese and American film crews and featuring the first vivid 4K transfers of their largely previously unseen footage, ATOMIC COVER-UPis an essential resourcefor understanding the US' activities in Japan and the effects of nuclear weapons.

ORCHESTRATING CHANGE tells the inspiring story of Me2/Orchestra, the only orchestra in the world created by and for people living with mental illness and those who support them. The orchestra's mission is to erase the stigmatization of people living with mental illness through the creation of beautiful music, community, compassion, and understanding...one concert at a time. Most importantly, it is changing the lives of musicians and audiences in ways they never imagined.  

With compelling characters, striking animation, and even humor, ORCHESTRATING CHANGE addresses many of the myths about mental illness by showing what living with a mental illness is really like—with both setbacks and accomplishments. The film challenges audiences to reconsider their preconceived notions about mental illness. For those living with a diagnosis, it is empowering.  

The film culminates in an extraordinary concert that is a triumph--for Me2/Orchestra's conductor and co-founder, Ronald Braunstein, who lives with bipolar disorder and thought he might never conduct again, and for the musicians, their families, and the audience.

Produced and Directed by Bill Einreinhofer 

A Production of Paradox Communications, Inc.  

When Emmy Award-winning American filmmaker Bill Einreinhofer stepped off the plane in Beijing more than 30 years ago, he had no idea it was the first of dozens of visits to China. “I didn’t realize I would spend much of my professional career making stories in and about China. I also didn’t know I would become a ‘footage detective,’ spending countless hours locating rare historic footage. Yet, that’s what happened,” Einreinhofer recounted. “I have interviewed countless people about China, its culture, and its history. A number of them were kind enough to share their personal stories with me. When I travel through China, I often have other people’s memories in my head. Sadly, many of those people are now gone. But their stories live on, through me.” 





5/27 (Mon) @ 7pm  


Produced by John Davies and Brian Kallies   

Directed by John Davies 

A CITY AT WAR: CHICAGO, narrated by legendary journalist Bill Kurtis, is a comprehensive telling of nearly everything that happened in Chicagoland during World War II. Just prior to America’s involvement in World War II, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) called on the country to become “an arsenal of democracy”, and to start producing war materiel to help defeat the Axis powers. A CITY AT WAR: CHICAGO  explores how the Windy City answered that call, and how a friendship between FDR and Chicago Mayor Ed Kelly, a “Big City Boss”, helped to set everything in motion. The film reveals how the Chicago area was transformed into a well-oiled production machine with every man, woman, and child mobilizing to support the war effort.
