Unfit

   2020    Culture
After years of empirical observation, for the first time, prominent mental health professionals present their observations on camera as part of their ethical 'Duty to Warn' the public of imminent danger. It's an eye-opening discussion, analysis, and science-based examination of the behavior, psyche, condition, and stability of Donald Trump as they try to gauge whether he is fit to hold the office of President of the United States. Unfit also examines Trump's effect on our citizenry, culture, and institutions.
Producers' disclaimer: 'Unit is not politically motivated; it does not advocate for policy issues or take a stance on matters of state. The film is also not intended to offer a formal diagnosis nor recommend treatment. This film speaks only to the collective welfare of Americans, and the world. It is rooted in science, and espoused by experts that include doctors whose sole motivation is their Duty to Warn.'

Pet Fooled

   2017    Technology
The film investigates the inner workings inside the commercial pet food industry, which has went largely unchallenged until now and Pet Fooled is made with an aim to expose its secrets and lack of transparency. Marketed toward humans, but made for consumers who can’t speak, pet food companies have learned how to navigate through verbiage and loopholes. The end result is a product that’s cheap and easy for them to make, while buyers are promised that they’re giving 'quality,' 'healthy,' and 'nutritious' food to their pets. Some veterinary professionals in the film link modern ailments found in pets, such as obesity and allergies, to diet.
Insights and knowledge are shared by multiple interviewees, including Dr. Karen Becker of Mercola Healthy Pets, Dr. Barbara Royal, founder of The Royal Treatment Veterinary Center and Oprah Winfrey’s veterinarian, Susan Thixton, founder of Truthaboutpetfood.com.

   2020    Medicine
