Buried Above Ground
Buried Above Ground is a documentary film that interweaves the unforgettable stories of a veteran home from Iraq, a Hurricane Katrina survivor, and a woman who endured child abuse, domestic violence, and rape, all battling the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The Carrier
When 28-year-old Mutinta Mweemba first shares all the hopes and dreams she once nurtured as a child, her aspirations seem no different from those of many other young women around the world. She dreams of meeting and falling in love with a handsome man, being married and raising children and hopefully one day providing those children with a better life than her own.
