An Italian documentary depicting the treacherous journey migrants took across the Mediterranean juxtaposed with those already living in Lampedusa, where migrants arrived.

Anita: Speaking Truth to Power

In light of the #MeToo movement, the story of Anita Hill is now more important than ever.

It was a moment in our political history that rocked the world, and one that will never be forgotten.
