Directed and produced by Yuhong Li, Our Fathers’ Revolution explores the Cultural Revolution of China from a contemporary point of view and can be seen in the U.S. exclusively through Amherst Media. The documentary follows students from the City University of Hong Kong who go back to their hometowns in Mainland China to interview their families and others who experienced the Cultural Revolution first hand. 

It's almost election day and the candidates were invited into Amherst Media to talk a bit about themselves and their campaigns. The videos have been compiled into a playlist on YouTube.

We are excited to bring you a documentary titled Being Here, produced by Francisco Zamora, a visiting scholar in Film Studies at UMass Amherst and a Ph.D. candidate at Université Paris 8 in France. The documentary focuses on a women's prison in Buen Pastor, Costa Rica, where the prisoners must reaffirm their femininity while in prison by taking up hobbies such as crafting and hair dressing, finding religion, or taking up dancing.
