Georgia State University’s Community-Based Media Initiative produces short documentaries with and about Atlanta communities. Moving off the beaten path, these shorts range from hard-hitting to moving, and open up dialogue and awareness of the diversity of the city. Among the subjects explored in these videos:
- One Performer. $250,000 raised for HIV charity. See how the "lips, hips, and saggy tits" of Mary Edith Pitts are transforming the gay Atlanta Community.
- 13 kids die on the street everyday and Atlanta is not immune from this tragedy. Stand Up for Kids hits the street to make a difference!
- Witness activists combat the epidemic of child sex trafficking in Atlanta, and their heroic impact on this modern day slavery.
- Two men, playing the same sport, in the same city, at the same time, but their paths will never cross. Is Soccer truly a Universal Language?
- Ashneel lives his life with the ideas of parkour to guide him - the most efficient way to get from point A to point B, in movement and life - Parkour!
- The sassy girls of Sequoya participate in an after school program that enables them to express themselves through theatrical performance.
