Variety calls SHE LIVES TO RIDE a "winner from start to finish." Five women smash stereotypes as they share their love of motorcycle riding. Filmed in the 1990's, these women were trailblazers at a time when most women rode on the back seat. From Dot Robinson, a Harley-riding record-setting great-grandmother, to Amy Berry, a florist and only female member of an African-American club, these women make history just living their lives. Highlights include rarely seen photos of the Van Buren sisters, who motorcycled across the country in 1916, and Bessie Stringfield, a black motorcycle courier during WWII, who motorcycled across the Jim Crow South.

Alternatively titled When We Were Young, There Was a War, this project is an innovative, bilingual digital documentary that examines the aftermath of the civil wars in El Salvador and Guatemala through the lens of six women and men who were children during the violent conflicts. They all lost loved ones and their childhoods were darkened by bombings and massacres. In both countries guerrilla movements seeking economic and political reforms took on military dictatorships supported by the United States.
