MADEINUSA is the story of a 14-year-old, sweet, Indian girl named Madeinusa who lives in a dirt-floor house and dreams of the world beyond the village. It is the custom of her town that from Good Friday at three in the afternoon (just when Christ died on the cross) through Easter Sunday, sin does not exist. On the eve of this time of small-town debauchery, Salvador, a young geologist from Lima, accidentally comes to town. The town greets him with curiosity and ire, then imprisons him out of fear that he will interfere with the festivities. But Madeinusa, ever curious about things from the big city, is drawn to him, and her fate begins to turn in unexpected ways.

  • MADEINUSA is in Spanish with English subtitles and has a runtime of 100 minutes
  • MADEINUSA was a winner at the Rotterdam, Havana and Mar de la Plata Film Fesitvals, as well as an Official Selection at Sundance, Seattle, Edinburgh, Miami, Tribeca, Guadalajara and Helsinki International Film Festivals

Over the course of a year, Let the Church Say Amen chronicles the daily life surrounding World Missions for Christ Church in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Like many urban communities that haven't benefited from America's prosperity, these citizens face challenges that would be shocking for any U.S. city, let alone that of the nation's capital: Rampant drug abuse, unemployment, poverty, homelessness, and violence. Yet the strength of this community comes from the powerful faith of a storefront church of modest resources but great spiritual power. Years ago the space was a corner store, now it serves as a sanctuary where members gather every Sunday to sing, pray, testify and work through faith to change the community.

  • LET THE CHUCH SAY AMEN is an English-language film with a runtime of 90 minutes
  • LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN was an Official Selection at the Sundance, Brooklyn, Bangkok, True/False, Reelworld and Riverrun International Film Festivals
