White supremacists looted and rioted our Nation’s Capitol hell bent on causing fear, screaming messages of hate, wearing anti-Semitic shirts and setting up nooses. Many of our political leaders were terrorized, but even those who saw pictures or videos later were harmed by the visuals. Our films and stories seek to honor all those who experienced violence and injustice. Thank you Jamie for having the courage to share your story and your grandmother’s story. If you have a story you’d like to share, please DM us.

This year, as democracy in the US is under threat, Dr. King’s life and legacy and his beautiful dreams feel especially poignant. Even though we are just one day from a new President and a new administration we must not slow down the fight for equality.

3 Generations makes feature films, short films and videos about critical human rights issue. We're proud to have produced They Ain't Ready for Me in partnership with Red Shield Pictures.
They Ain’t Ready For Me is the story of Tamar Manasseh, the African American rabbinical student who is leading the fight against senseless killings on the south side of Chicago. The film explores the challenges and motivations of this fearless community leader as she works to prevent more people from being killed by gun violence. Tamar's complex identity and magnetic personality combine to make her a force to be reckoned with, and she hasn't even hit her stride yet.

For Immigrants Who Fled Tyranny, Capitol Siege Felt Painfully Familiar

Check out this powerful message from Imran Mfh, a Rohginya refugee who has honored 3 Generations with his story and wisdom. Never take freedom for granted.

The breach of the U.S. Capitol was a shocking event for most Americans. But for immigrants who have fled dictatorships, it triggered complex emotions.

Last week the world witnessed atrocious acts at the US Capitol. This week the question of why it is essential to document atrocity is more compelling than ever. The footage of the horrific events in Washington D.C. serves many purposes, but we will focus on 2. First, to quote @3gjane father Sidney Bernstein, the documentation is "evidence for all mankind", & second, it reminds us that democracies and the rule of law are fragile.

Our film contest is the culmination of our commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. The deadline is January 27th 2021, International Holocaust Remembrance Day & the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

It is open to 16 to 30 year olds & asks the question “Why Document Atrocity?” There will be 3 prizes of $1000 each. The judges include artist @marilynminter & film producer @dberwin1960

Menemsha Films, our distribution partner for the Sidney Bernstein documentary German Concentration Camps Factual Survey will add the winning videos to their ChaiFlicks platform.

This contest, always intended to engage young people over the significance of the Holocaust & the importance of documentation, suddenly feels more urgent than ever. We have been asked to give some guidance to potential & aspiring documentarians especially since due to Covid-19 lockdowns, filming is more challenging than normal:

@3gjane will host a Livestream tomorrow January 12th at 5pm EST with filmmaker @urghreub & they will answer some questions we have received & share Covid-compliant ideas for how to make a quality video. We don’t want people to be shy about jumping in to this contest. We want to hear their voices. We want them to participate in creating evidence for all mankind.

If you’re between 16-30 years old – start filming! We want to hear from you! If not....please help us by encouraging your friends, children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews & neighbors to pick up their cameras, their phones & share their thoughts & ideas. There is more info on our website & in the Livestream which will be on Facebook, YouTube & Twitter pages. #3genfilms #filmcontest #whydocumentatrocity #3generations

Human trafficking is an issue that “ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity. It ought to concern every community, because it tears at our social fabric. It ought to concern every business, because it distorts markets. It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime. I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name—modern slavery.” - #barackobama

You can learn more about our work to expose human trafficking in the US by visiting our website (link in bio) or consider watching our documentary “Tricked” a film that follows people impacted by sex trafficking across the United States.

Today in history. December 29, 1890 - the massacre at Wounded Knee

The Wounded Knee Massacre was rewritten as a battle. This is how the US Government spun the the story of how US soldiers murdered nearly 300 Native people - over half were women and children.

Many mistakenly refer to the massacre as part of Native history. But Native history is American history.

Today we remember and honor those who lost their lives in a massacre that should have been avoided.

10 American Pastors with Private Jets - 'It's what Jesus would do' - Aircraft Compare

On the day many of us celebrate as Christmas, this story is just plain ugly. As a not for profit ourselves it is galling that these “not for profit charities” spend this kind of money on anything except directly helping others in need. No more words. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate.

Today marks the formal adoption of Article 13, what abolishes slavery, in the US Constitution. 155 years later we are still fighting racism and discrimination. We have a long way to go but institutions like the Legacy Museum @eji_org in Montgomery, AL display the history of slavery, discrimination, segregation and lynchings of Black people in the US. We have to acknowledge the past and confront our current shortcomings for us to move forward. #13thamendment #legacymuseum

This is Alice. She was a resilient woman and a survivor of the Armenian Genocide. She was an activist for all of her life and was determined to tell her story, not to promote hate, but to prevent it. 3 Generations films stories of the survivors of crimes against humanity to record their experiences as an act of healing, a call to action and to create historical evidence.

Search for Alice's story at www.3generations.org and hear her story.

It’s time to talk about the death penalty. The Trump/Barr Justice Dept has taken 109 steps backwards in the movement to end this barbaric practice. They are literally on an execution spree in anticipation of the Biden/Harris administration abolishing the death penalty.
Abolition of the death penalty is in the DNA of 3 Generations. Sidney Bernstein, our founder’s father, was a life-long abolitionist and worked to bring it to an end in the UK when Jane Wells was a child. On her father’s knee she knew it was a vile and inhumane form of non-justice.
3 Generations’ award-winning film A System of Justice tells the story of two men sentenced to death for crimes they did not commit. Glen
Ford was exonerated after 33 years on death row.
Today we are petitioning for clemency for Brandon Bernard who is sentenced to die on December 10th, International Human Rights Day. It’s hard to think this is a complete coincidence.
Please call Bill Barr’s justice Dept. Call your senators. [email protected] Instagram page. Do something. Anything. Help us end the execution spree.

I feel very strongly about this and ask all my friends to support the #NFLBoycott they are racists, they are sexist and I have no skin in this game. This is just fundamental human rights.
"Tricked" was a very informative and shocking documentary. This is a must see. Thank you for raising awareness. 💚
Don't support Trump's #travelban? Want to understand what being a refugee is really like? Please join me Lost in Lebanon Film's North American Premiere and meet the talented filmmakers Georgia Scott and Sophia Scott. I will be at both screenings (I produced this film). See you there.
