With more women in prisons than ever before, Conviction invites viewers to question the status quo, and to consider a different kind of society that better supports the most vulnerable among us.

Beyond Extinction: A Sinixt Resurgence documents three decades of Indigenous struggle by the Sinixt people, whose traditional territories are in Southwest British Columbia and the USA, divided by the border. It weaves together observational footage, contemporary interviews, oral histories, survival stories told by matriarchs, personal as well as public archives, to tell a story never told before.
