Balance Staff Pick.jpg

We humans we create, we work, we stay busy from birth to death and never rest. We build, aim higher, work harder, accomplish more, and to what end?

"Balance" takes an abstract look at our modern world, the full and the empty spaces and time in which we live and choose to make our lives.

Home.jpg

"Home" is an emotionally powerful story about a young woman's extreme challenge in life and how a Bay area organization called Ujima helped her. Her story was one of the most engaging, intense, and so well spoken stories we have ever captured. A big thanks to Jylyn for letting us come into your home and introducing us to your family.
