Kartemquin docs continue to impact communities

Chrissy Garcia on battling cancer and the film In The Family

At Kartemquin, we pride ourselves on the impact our films can make on audiences. Long after a film has played at festivals or on television, we hope that its quality will stand the test of time and that it will continue to move people to discuss the issues involved, and inspire them to take action no matter where they are in the world. Here are some recent examples of our documentaries stirring debate and meeting a positive response for their informed and engrossing depiction of complex subject matter.
