Austin Film Festival Peachtree Village International Film Festival Utopia Film Festival Vassar FilmFest Washington, D.C.

Father K is an award winning documentary about Palestinian Lutheran Pastor Khader El-Yateem who decides to run as NYC’s first, Arab American elected official. He does what no one in his conservative Brooklyn neighborhood thinks is possible - igniting his marginalized community’s hopes and dreams. In the election aftermath, an unforeseeable blow threatens the foundation of the movement they started, and the community finds their newfound optimism is tested to its limit. Father K must face the realities of what it takes to build lasting power in a divided America. Directed by Grand Clio, Cannes Lion and Emmy Award-winning Director Judd Ehrlich, Father K’s voice emerges as funny, bold, and defiantly hopeful — a bridge-builder in a polarized time.

Produced by 1001 MEDIA Limited and Flatbush Pictures.

New Balance

We loved telling the inspiring story of Trayvon Bromell in the first installment of our new UNINTERRUPTED series with New Balance — directed by Judd Ehrlich. Can't wait to share more of Trayvon's journey to become the fastest man in the world.

In his pursuit to become the world’s fastest man, Trayvon Bromell understands his time is precious – especially on the road back from injury. Some doubted whether he’d return to the 100m start line following an injury that impeded his performance in Rio, but to him, it was never a question. Slow feet don’t eat – and he’s hungry.
