There's a violent secret under the surface in Guatemala City. It affects families in every social class and in every neighborhood. Everyone knows it but everyone is silent. That's when Vicente decided to speak up. Based on the true story behind a landmark legal case, "Aullido" (Howl) displays what can happen when children are bold in the face of injustice and how those in power can stand on their behalf.

It is quickly becoming the most populated country in the world, but India holds a dark secret. Men and women who make their homes in the poor villages throughout the central region of the country are forced to make decisions that no parents should ever have to make. Sell a child into slavery or watch your children starve to death.
Christian persecution has been a reality for more than 2,000 years. While tragic, it is not a story of defeat. Instead, those who find themselves in the crosshairs of violence today count it a blessing to stand among the faithful throughout history. In the face of persecution, these followers of Christ fear compromise more than death itself.
Love Costs Everything maps the history of Christian persecution from the first martyrs to seven present-day stories of faith that knows no price.
Filmed in Iraq, Columbia, India, Egypt, France and the United States, this feature-length documentary includes commentary from US Congressmen, foreign government officials, religious leaders and scholars.
Every major social problem that plagues our nation today can be traced back to one root cause: Fatherlessness.
From small town American to the heart of New York City, 'Becoming Sons & Daughters' tells the stories of people who are stepping into the lives of fatherless kids. Through adoption, mentoring, and simply paying attention, these men and women are planting hope and security. They are giving kids a future and helping them become sons and daughters.
