BLOOD ON THE WALL directed by Nick Quested and Sebastian Junger
- In Central America, a caravan of migrants seeking a better life heads north to the United States, as narco-traffickers move drugs and money back and forth across the same border. From Academy Award-nominated director Sebastian Junger and Emmy-winning producer Nick Quested, Blood on the Wall explores the depths of corruption plaguing Mexico and Central America and the policies of the past that have made it impossible for everyday people to find justice.

INFLUENCE directed by Diana Neille & Richard Poplak
- The rise and fall of the world's most notorious public relations and reputation management firm, the British multinational Bell Pottinger.
Part Mad Men, part Edge of Democracy. This is THE dark side of political spin-doctoring. Tim Pottinger ‘gave birth’ to the world of persuasive advertising and ‘the brand’. He was the & between the two Saatchis, he helped Margaret Thatcher get elected (twice) and he believed he absolutely did nothing wrong and had nothing to do with inciting racial violence in South Africa.
