Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

By working with cultural leaders and decision-makers, progress in biotechnology will unite around a common human good promoting human flourishing.

A primary strategy is documentary filmmaking. Through this, we assemble truly diverse coalitions to drive forward educational efforts around specific issues.

We have produced award-winning documentary films, including the following: "Lines that Divide" (2009), "Eggsploitation" (2010, 2013), "Anonymous Father's Day" (2011), "Breeders: A Subclass of Women?" (2014), and "Maggie's Story" (2015), #BigFertility (2018) and "Trans Mission: What's the Rush to Reassign Gender?" (2020)

These films include voices from and have been endorsed by people across the traditional left/right, liberal/conservative, and non-religious/religious divides.

We continue to receive requests to show our films, to be interviewed about the films, to respond to issues in the current news cycle, to educate legislators considering action on the issues on which we work. Strong indicators of progress are the sales and screenings of our films. For example, each year our films are screened on college campuses across the nation. In addition, we are seeing an increased international impact of our work -- our films sold into more than two dozen countries and have been translated into French, Italian, Japanese, and more.
