From executive producer and Grammy-nominated rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones and journalist-turned-filmmaker Adam Sjöberg comes the buoyant, globe-trotting film SHAKE THE DUST.

The Mama Sherpas

Directed by Brigid Maher

Executive Produced by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein

Running time: 78 minutes



From executive producers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein (The Business of Being Born), this topical new documentary examines a growing shift in the birthing industry: the rise of Caesarean sections. With C-section rates dangerously over 30% in America, are midwives the solution? In recent years, the idea of a “collaborative care” practice where doctors and midwives manage women’s care together has begun to gain traction. Research has demonstrated that collaborative care models produce better outcomes for mother and baby, including fewer C-sections. This moving and urgent film provides an intimate lens into how midwives across the country work within and better the hospital system, redefining how the US looks at the birthing process.



THE MAMA SHERPAS is now playing in select cities and will be available on DVD, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, VUDU, and themamasherpas.com in July 2015.

The Notorious Mr. Bout

Directed by Tony Gerber and Maxim Pozdorovkin

Running time: 92 minutes



When he was arrested in 2008 in Thailand as a result of a U.S. government sting operation, the career of internationally known arms smuggler Viktor Bout came to a decisive end. Veiled by the obscurity of post-Soviet Russia, Bout had built an empire of aerial delivery so vast he was called “the merchant of death” and was even the subject of a Hollywood film. In sharp contrast to the widely known, super-villain persona, however, was another Bout: a philosophical businessman who simply enjoyed travel, his work, his family, and filming it all with his video camera.



THE NOTORIOUS MR. BOUT will be available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, and VUDU in September 2015.
