No End - No End was inspired by a poem written by the filmmaker over the course of six months. During this process, abstract images surfaced, subsided, and settled, eventually forming the foundation of a film. What developed from this is a lyrical journey that explores the intersection of interconnectivity and lived experience. An original soundtrack composed by Graham Stewart of Viosac accompanies and complements the work.

Honest Struggle - The Honest Struggle is the story of a devout Muslim ex-offender and his journey re-entering society after being incarcerated 3 times. The film follows Sadiq, an energetic 55 year old man who has spent the majority of his life behind bars. Sadiq is chosen to live in a unique, faith-based reentry home in the Southside of Chicago which aims to transition its residents into the outside world while also turning them into leaders through community service projects and youth mentoring.  The film documents Sadiq_Ñés continuing struggle to transition into society over a span of 3 years and explores the realities of reentry and the inspirational surprises of human character.
