Friends since their freshmen year–Adomah, Jamar, Jamil, Jana, Imoni–have experienced a lot together. In The Five, they open up about their friendship, their reasons for coming to college, their hopes for the future, and how they managed to stay friends despite the drama that comes with living on a small campus in the middle of nowhere Maine.

KORPRIT is a film about the creative practices of a young clothing designer in rural Maine. The film follows him as he screenprints t-shirts and rides his moped around town.

Logging has been Maine’s most important industry for almost its entire history. Today that industry is shrinking and Mainers’ livelihoods are being impacted.

Close to the Bone spends time with the people who are closest to the story–loggers and an organization trying to help them.
